We have 56 Zoology / Animal Science PhD Research Projects

Refining the tagging of wild fish and sharks [Biosciences] – PhD (Funded)

Location.  . Biosciences, Streatham Campus, Exeter.  . The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences is inviting applications for a PhD studentship funded by NC3Rs to commence in September 2021. Read more

Informing landscape-scale conservation of rare bats using novel telemetry techniques

  Research Group: EBE
Landscape-scale planning for bat conservation is challenging because detailed information on habitat use is difficult to obtain, particularly for rare bats that are infrequently recorded using acoustic techniques. Read more

RapID-Pest: Rapid identification of insect pests from bulk collections and cryptic samples

The correct identification of insect species can be difficult and is dependent on taxonomic expertise; particularly in the identification of groups such as aphids, immature larvae or cryptic species for example. Read more

Metabolic drivers of health in harbour porpoises: systems physiology approach to investigating measures of resilience to a changing environment

Human activities (e.g., marine construction and fishing) have been demonstrated to significantly impact cetacean populations. This displaces animals from feeding grounds, impair foraging or directly reduce the amount of food available. Read more

Linking individual eco-physiology to lifetime fitness in an animal athlete

Long-distance migration, which is among the most dramatic phenomena in nature, places huge physiological demands on animals. Yet despite fascinating humans for millennia, how migration shapes eco-physiology and influences evolutionary processes remains poorly understood. Read more

FULLY FUNDED PHD: Enhancing human memory formation through learning

TO APPLY, CLICK 'INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. We are seeking a talented, hard working, creative and enthusiastic person for this PhD project, which will provide fundamental insight into human memory, and has the potential to provide novel therapeutic strategies. Read more

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment. Read more

What are the toxicokinetic and toxicodynamic mechanisms underlying the synergistic interactions between chemical and multiple stressors in mixture exposures?

The objective of this PhD is to assess the potential for synergistic effects between pesticides and pesticides and other environmental stressors, as these may explain some of the ecological effects resulting from chronic mixture stressor exposures. Read more

Predicting body size shrinkage - the third universal response to environmental warming

Background. As Earth warms, and heat waves become more frequent, climate impacts occur over short and long timescales. Three proposed universal responses of organisms to climate warming are geographical range shifts, changes in timing (phenology) of life events, and a reduction in body size. Read more
