  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.
  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).
  Evolutionary acceleration in the Anthropocene
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Prof C Thomas
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to investigate whether rates of evolution, hybridisation and speciation have been accelerating during the Anthropocene.
  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.
  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.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics of higher delta-plain carboniferous swamps.
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This a unique opportunity to conduct evolutionary and paleoecological research on one of the UK’s most well-preserved fossil forests at Brymbo, Wrexham.
  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.
  Insect adaptation to Antarctica: past and future
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice – thus wiping out all terrestrial life.
  Modelling the Cambrian Explosion
  Dr R Wood, Dr A Curtis
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. We propose to model the depositional and diagenetic contributions to poorly understood geochemical proxies that are of importance to understanding the ‘Cambrian Explosion’ and modernisation of Earth’s biogeochemical cycles.
  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).
