  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
