  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).
  The past as the key to the future: assessing ecological and landscape response to rising sea level (CASE funded)
  Dr N Barlow, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to develop a large-scale palaeo landscape dataset from the North Sea, which may be used to better forecast future coastline response to changing sea level.
  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.
  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.
  Tackling taxonomic and taphonomic biases in the Triassic fossil fish record
  Dr S Giles, Dr T Clements, Dr I Sansom
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ray-finned fishes (actinopterygians) are the most diverse and successful group of vertebrates today, accounting for over half of living vertebrate species.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Living World, Changing Planet) Advancing the study of photosynthetic life in extreme cryo-environments
  Dr C Williamson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Permanently cold ecosystems make up more than 70% of the Earth’s biosphere, though paradoxically, the microorganisms that thrive in these extreme habitats are the most poorly understood.
  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).
  Modern molecular techniques for old domestic breeds at heritage sites
  Dr F Schubert, Dr G Scarlett, Dr S Robson
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Frank Schubert, Dr Garry Scarlett and Dr Sam Robson.
  The experimental effects of wave processes on arthropod taphonomy: implications for Lagerstätten and Small Carbonaceous Fossils
  Dr S Mitchell, Dr A Butcher, Dr N Minter
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Nicholas Minter, Dr Steve Mitchell and Dr Anthony Butcher.
  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.
