  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  QUADRAT DTP: Conservation implications of variation in reproductive traits among fragmented populations of tropical forest trees
  Prof D Burslem, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The persistence of plant populations in fragmented landscapes is dependent on adequate gene flow via seed and pollen dispersal.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project - Evolution and biodiversity conservation in Africa: teaching, training and outreach
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1].
  QUADRAT DTP: Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Responses of fungal populations to habitat loss and creation: extinction debts and colonisation credits
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As habitat is lost due to land use change, species are lost from the landscape both locally and regionally. This loss of species does not all happen immediately and indeed, in some cases there can many years before some species eventually go extinct following land-use change.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
