FEAST OR FAMINE: HOW AUSTRALIAN PLANTS STAY PRODUCTIVE UNDER DIFFERENT LEVELS OF SOIL PHOSPHORUS

ABOUT THE PROJECT. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is offering a research scholarship to a highly motivated PhD candidate to work within a research group addressing how plants stay productive on P-impoverished soils. Read more

Soundscape Digital Placemaking

An opportunity to apply for a full-time PhD in the Faculty of the Environment and Technology, UWE Bristol. The studentship will be funded or part-funded by the Faculty of Environment and Technology. Read more

VULNERABILITY OF AUSTRALIAN BATS TO WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME - HIBERNATION BIOLOGY

About the Project. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) within Western Sydney University is seeking a PhD candidate for a 3-year PhD program of research to commence in 2021 to investigate the behavioural ecology, energetics and thermal physiology of winter hibernation by Australian cave-roosting bats.

Linking land management with fungal diversity, plant growth and nutrient uptake

About the project. The symbiosis between arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and terrestrial plants is one of the most widespread and successful plant symbioses on Earth, one that includes the majority of food crops. Read more

Male-male competition vs female choice: same-same or something different?

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on sexual selection in Drosophila. Typically, males compete with one another for access to females, and females choose their preferred suitor among competing males. Read more

Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

Genomics of sexual trait expression in black grouse

  Research Group: Hoffman research group (molecular ecology)
An outstanding opportunity is available for a PhD student to work on the evolutionary genomics of sexual trait expression in an iconic avian model system, the black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix). The position is available in Joe Hoffman’s research group (www.thehoffmanlab.com) at the Department of Animal Behaviour at Bielefeld University and is fully funded for three years. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more

Microbial activity on glaciers and ice sheets: an integrated modelling and empirical approach.

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
Glaciers and ice sheets are important microbe-dominated ecosystems, that are undergoing rapid changes due to climate change. Supraglacial (glacier surface) ecosystems contain organisms from all three domains of life, which drive carbon and nutrient cycling, and cause ice darkening, thus enhancing ice mass loss. Read more
