  Evolution of unique cranial morphology and function in lagomorphs: a combined effect of locomotion and mastication?
  Dr A Sharp, Dr N Jeffery
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammals have evolved diverse craniofacial morphology to adapt to a wide range of ecological niches. However, the factors driving this evolution of different morphologies and functions, and the mechanisms of evolutionary change are not fully understood.
  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

Background. 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.
  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.
  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.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., Ebola, pandemic influenza, chikungunya fever etc.).
  Determining how ancient human societies and historic climate change have shaped Egypt’s mammalian fauna and its implications for our understanding of the links between people and the environment
  Dr J Bro-Jorgensen, Prof CD Thomas, Dr S Snape
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
