  Declining Male Fertility: Investigations of plausible environmental risk factors in the Racehorse Breeding Stallion
  Dr R Sumner
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this studentship is to assess the fertility potential of breeding stallions and explore a possible environmental aetiology.
  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Molecular basis of balanced color polymorphisms in grasshoppers
  Prof H Schielzeth
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. All species are phenotypically variable, but in some species, multiple distinct color morphs coexist in local populations.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Role of Auxin in Phytophthora Root Rot Disease Development in Soft Fruit
  Dr E Gilroy, Dr C Simpson, Prof M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brief Introduction. Phytophthora species that infect soft fruit are currently poorly understood and understudied pathogens. They cause significant economic and environmental impact on soft fruit production in the UK.
  Behavioural ecology, disease biology and immuno-ecology in Malagasy shorebirds
  Prof O Kruger, Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating systems and parental behaviour are among the most diverse social behaviours, and recent research suggests that the social environment influences these behaviours.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
