  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).
  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.
  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.
  The origin of biomineralisation: oxygenation, nutrient cycling, and seawater chemistry
  Dr R Wood, Dr L Pichevin
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. What were the triggers that allowed animals to form skeletons in the Cambrian Explosion?. Project background. Animals with skeletons or shells dominate our seas today, and play a key role in the long term carbon cycle.
  Depositional architecture and deformation of an active interbasinal relay zone: Corinth Isthmus, Greece
  Dr R Collier, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Relay zones in active rifts are areas where strain is distributed between overlapping normal faults. At the scale of the major basin-bounding faults, interbasinal relay zones (or accommodation zones) separate depocentres along the rift axis.
  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.
