  Assessing multiple pressures on seabirds
  Dr J A Green, Dr L Robinson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds are the world’s most threatened group of birds, facing threats from multiple anthropogenic activities in the marine environment, including renewable energy, fisheries, contaminants, plastics and climate change.
  Understanding the response of variability in tree reproduction (masting) to climatic and environmental change
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many tree species show a reproductive strategy known as masting, which is characterised by switching between years of bumper investment in reproduction (“mast years”), and years of low investment.
  Global insect declines? Assessing the resilience of urban insects
  Dr K Parr, Dr R Jeffreys, Dr K L Evans
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Insects are biodiverse and critical for many ecosystem processes but are potentially in huge trouble. Recent studies suggest insect populations may be declining precipitously both in human-disturbed and natural environments.
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
  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.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof JL 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.
  Genomic architecture of inbreeding depression in butterflies
  Dr I J Saccheri, Dr V Oostra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small and fragmented populations often suffer from reduced fitness due to inbreeding depression, which may impact population growth and persistence.
  Climate change, microbiota, and speciation
  Dr T Price, Dr J Ferrai, Dr Z Lewis
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim. to understand the impact of high temperatures on gut microbes, and whether this will be a problem as the climate changes. Background.
  Does phenotypic plasticity help or hinder rapid adaptation?
  Dr S J Plaistow, Prof J Hill, Dr V Oostra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic stress is altering our planet at an unprecedented rate and has major implications for global biodiversity, health and the economy.
  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. One way to understand how these networks function is to compare them between related species, to see which genes are common between them and which are unique.
