  The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form.
  Beauty is in the ear of the beholder: the role of accent in mate choice
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many forms of communication rely on learned signals1. In animals, learned signals can include courtship displays and dominance and submission behaviours2, 3.
  Evolution in silico and in vitro: environmental change, mutation and space
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding evolutionary processes requires an interplay between wet-lab experiment and computational simulation [1]. This project will use model systems for both to explore the interplay of evolutionary processes (primarily mutation) and the spatial environment.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Validating environmental DNA as a powerful and cost-effective monitoring tool for declining, elusive and invasive mammals
  Dr A McDevitt
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Academic Supervisor. Dr Allan McDevitt (University of Salford). Academic Co-Supervisors. Dr Erinma Ochu (University of Salford), Prof.
  Geography PhD opportunities

Funding Type

PhD Type

For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
