  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.
  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.
  Understanding how adaptive evolution shapes microbial community functioning in a changing environment
  Dr S O'Brien, Dr S Zytynska, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the main motivations for better understanding microbial communities is to manage ecosystem functioning. When conditions change, for example through climate change or intensive agricultural practices, microbial adaptive responses will drive ecological and evolutionary changes in the soil microbiome.
  Disease Control and Conservation: Applying Grazing Pressure to Solve ‘The World's Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Naturally occurring diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans (zoonotic infections).
  Reducing harm to wildlife from rodent pest control strategies
  Prof JL Hurst, Prof P Stockley, Prof R Shore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Current strategies to control rodent pests have substantial environmental impact, relying on baits that are highly toxic to vertebrates and attract non-target species such as wood mice, bank voles and field voles.
  Exploring the contribution of horizontal gene transfer to greenhouse gas emissions from arable agriculture
  Dr J Hall, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas, and arable agriculture is a major source of N2O due to incomplete denitrification of N-based fertilizers by microbes.
  Assessing the diversity, drivers & importance of Megaira, intracellular symbiont of aquatic eukaryotes
  Prof G Hurst, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biology, ecology and evolution of eukaryotes is in part a product of their symbiotic interactions with microbes. Intracellular microbes, retained during cell division and reproduction, are particularly interesting, as they are selected to maintain and nurture their hosts.
