  The Ecological and Evolutionary consequences of tropicalisation
  Dr P Fenberg, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Climate warming is creating novel ecological communities whereby species compositions and interactions differ from a historical baseline.
  Evolution in the sea: how do new phytoplankton species form?
  Dr D Filatov
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis in marine phytoplankton is responsible for about half of newly produced organic matter on the planet. The amount of CO2 fixed by phytoplankton is thought to significantly affect the global carbon cycle and climate.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Adaptations of Antarctic penguins in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr J Younger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  How do epigenetic modifications affect evolution in phytoplankton?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Collins, Dr Attila Molnar
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, affect how organisms respond to environmental changes such as light or temperature variation.
  The ecological impacts of an aggressive aquatic invader: is Crassula helmsii the biggest threat to European freshwater biodiversity?
  Prof D Bilton, Dr A Foggo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological invasions represent one of the most significant threats to biodiversity on the planet. Freshwaters are both disproportionately affected by such invasions, and home to a disproportionately large proportion of biodiversity, especially invertebrates.
  Antarctic benthic Mollusca: biodiversity, community and functional group structure in habitats influenced by varying ice-cover and the Weddell Gyre
  Dr K Linse, Dr P Fenberg, Dr H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.
  (BBSRC DTP) The timing and modes of macroevolutionary change: molecules, morphology, and simulations
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Sansom, Dr M Sutton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macroevolution occurs over time spans of millions of years. Two approaches can be taken in identifying and understanding macroevolutionary patterns and processes - empirical and theoretical.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Genetic rescue and the conservation of small populations (SPURGINUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will address the question of whether small populations can be “genetically rescued”. The student will carry out replicated and controlled genetic rescue experiments to determine the extent and conditions under which immigration improves population performance in the wild.
