Humanity must increase food production by 70% to feed 10 billion people and, according to the UN, more than 5 billion people could suffer water shortages by 2050 due to climate change.
  Deconstructing the Kraken: using genomic and paleontological approaches to understand how cephalopods adapted to the deep sea.
  Dr J Paps, Prof D Pisani, Dr J Vinther
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Cephalopods are the most intelligent of invertebrates, possessing a sophisticated nervous system, complex behaviorand learning capabilities.
  Divide and conquer strategies for population genomics
  Prof M Beaumont
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA sequences contain a wealth of information about the history of a population. Typical genomes contain about 3 X 109bases, of which around 107arevariable in typical samples,reflecting 10 million mutations in the ancestry of the sample.

Understanding what regulates the spread of diseases in space and time is critical if we are to combat them effectively.
  Enhancing the stress tolerance and shelf life of horticultural crops through light quality manipulation
  Prof K Franklin, Prof A M Hetherington
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite comprising a small component of sunlight, UV-B wavelengths (280-315 nm) regulate a diverse array of regulatory processes in plants, including growth, metabolite content and resistance to pests and diseases.

Summary. Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis.
  Indicators of regime shifts in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Clements
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regime shifts, characterised by sudden, often irreversible, changes in the composition of biological communities, can have catastrophic impacts on the ecosystem services which society relies on.
