  EASTBIO: Functional genomics for understanding behaviour and learning in a single-celled brainless blob, the slime mould Physarum polycephalum
  Dr M Wenzel, Prof D Lusseau, Prof P Schaap
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Marius Wenzel (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/marius.wenzel. Professor David Lusseau (University of Aberdeen).
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  EASTBIO: Live fast, die young: testing the mechanisms linking risk-taking behaviour to the rate of ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Prof K Spencer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

Supervisors. Dr Pierre Bize (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/sbs/people/profiles/pierre.bize. Professor Karen Spencer (University of St.
  EASTBIO Aging and social behaviour
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Moorad
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aging is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Most current research focuses on how aging affects those individuals who do the aging.
  PhD position in comparative neurogenetics and behaviour
  Dr T Auer, Prof R. Benton
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD candidate (earliest starting date. 01/01/2020) to develop a project in comparative neuroscience and behaviour in the lab of Prof.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
  QUADRAT DTP: Energetics and survival of an apex predator - the African lion - in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Prof J Speakman, Dr C Tambling
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within the animal kingdom, certain species are particularly vulnerable to environmental disturbance, with apex predators being a case-in-point.
  QUADRAT DTP: The effects of maternal stress on offspring survival in the fallow deer
  Dr D Jennings, Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of climate change and human-induced habitat fragmentation has resulted in an unprecedented planet-wide biodiversity crisis.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof J Hurst
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal effects have important roles in a broad range of ecological and evolutionary processes, such as population dynamics, phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary responses to selection.
  *EASTBIO* Building for a changing world: how do breeding birds respond to temperature variation?
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof S Healy, Prof S Meddle
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. It may seem obvious that a bird’s nest plays an important role in reproduction. For example, the eggs or young in a nest that is exposed to predators, in a nest that gets too wet or too cold or is too loosely attached to a branch are unlikely to survive.
  Evolutionary quantitative genetics in the wild: behaviour, growth and fitness in Soay sheep
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contemporary natural selection frequently appears to favour the evolution of increased body size. However, corresponding evolutionary responses of body size, of magnitudes predicted by evolutionary quantitative genetic theory, are frequently not observed.
  Dynamic interplay of cell shape and tumour evolution
  Dr F Spill, Prof I Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour cells are long known to appear in vastly diverse shapes, both across patients and within a single tumour. This is in stark contrast to the regularity of cell shapes of healthy epithelial tissues from which most tumours originate.
  State-dependent cooperation among male and female parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Regan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biparental care occurs when males and females cooperate to provide care for their joint offspring, and although relatively rare, this form of has evolved repeatedly in birds, mammals, amphibians, fishes and insects.
  Investment decisions in grey squirrels: the role of future discounting and executive control. PhD in Psychology (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr L Leaver
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type
