  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The effect of managed honeybees on wild pollinator networks.
  Dr A Malhotra, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing interest in beekeeping using the western honeybee Apis mellifera has led to concerns that managed bees may negatively affect wild pollinators (including other wild bees, flies, butterflies, moths, beetles and hemipterans).
  Hard-wired for success? Unravelling genomic signatures in pollinators.
  Dr M Knight, Dr J Ellis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pollinator species, recognised as essential for ecosystem function, are undergoing rapid declines. One recent exception is the ‘Tree Bumblebee’ Bombus hypnorum.
  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.
  Conservation genomics of bumble bees (CENTA2-GENE4-HAMM)
  Dr R Hammond, Dr S Beleza
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bumble bees are a diverse group of key pollinators that suffer from the negative impact of anthropogenic change. This results in declining and fragmented populations that impacts on the bees themselves and so on the wild flowers and crops that they pollinate [2].
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  The evolution of mimicry in a changing world: how shifting bumblebee communities affect selection on a colour-polymorphic hoverfly
  Dr T Reader, Dr F Gilbert
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex species interactions make the impacts of global environmental change difficult to foresee.
