  Devonian Tropical Plant Assemblages from Arctic Svalbard
  Dr C Berry, Prof D Edwards, Dr L Cherns
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The Devonian period (419-359 million years ago) is the critical time in Earth history when land plants evolved from being ankle high simple branched naked twigs to being leafy trees growing in complex forest ecosystems (Stein et al.
  The influence of biogeochemistry and microbiology on Antarctic ice shelves
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr A Jungblut, Prof I Hawes, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Predicting the future behaviour of ice shelves is critical for understanding how Antarctica will respond to climate warming.
  Funded 4-Year PhD in Plant Ecology (functional ecology, leaf traits, extinction, palaeobotany)
  Dr K Bacon
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Botany & Plant Sciences, NUI Galway, is seeking a highly qualified and ambitious candidate to undertake a PhD in Dr Karen Bacon’s Plant Ecology lab focused on investigating relationships between leaf functional traits and extinction risk in plants.
  PhD Studentship in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics - Integrating palaeontological data in phylogenetic analysis – developing a principled statistical model for morphological evolution
  Dr TMW Nye
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. The post is for 42 months. Successful applicants will start in or before September 2020.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Ecology and evolution of the earliest terrestrial animals. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Xiaoya Ma, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology & Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Evolution of unique cranial morphology and function in lagomorphs: a combined effect of locomotion and mastication?
  Dr A Sharp, Dr N Jeffery, Dr P Cox
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.
  Moving about a new axis: The role of the backbone in major adaptive radiations of terrestrial vertebrates
  Dr KT Bates, Dr K Jones, Dr P Cox, Dr J Gardiner
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary shifts in locomotion underpin major ecological transitions in vertebrates. Our understanding of how key innovations in the locomotor system drive taxonomic and ecological diversity during evolutionary transitions is largely based on the limbs.
  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.
  A Statistical Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Bryozoan Mineralogy
  Dr P Dillingham, Prof D Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Bryozoans are one of the most mineralogically-complex phyla in the sea. These small colonial invertebrates make hard skeletons from seawater in any of three carbonate minerals, sometimes in various combinations, in response to controls that are intrinsic (phylogeny, development) and extrinsic (environment).
