insect PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 29 insect PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Population genomics of insect communities

Declines in insect populations and species are arguably one of the most concerning symptoms of the biodiversity crisis, given their importance in underpinning food webs and ecosystem processes. Read more

Towards 3D-printing of self-assembled insect-mimetic acoustic structures

Overview. We are seeking excellent candidates for 4-yr PhD and 5-yr masters+PhD scholarships to pursue an exciting interdisciplinary project that will pioneer novel materials enabled by self-assembly and 3D printing with multiple length-scales of complexity to better mimic the functional structures of insect hearing. Read more

Effects of urbanisation on insect biodiversity

Urbanisation is among the greatest threats to existing biodiversity. Recent studies reveal a worldwide decline of arthropods, threatening the sustainment of essential ecosystem services such as pollination and food webs. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Sublethal effects of novel insecticides on a beneficial parasitoid wasp and the implications for biological control

Broad-spectrum chemical insecticides such as neonicotinoids are a major cause of beneficial insect declines globally. In response to this, bans and restrictions on neonicotinoid use have been implemented on a global scale in an attempt to reverse trends in insect biodiversity loss. Read more

Molecular Insights in Bat Conservation: A Comprehensive Approach to Irish Bat Biodiversity and Sustainability (SETU_2024_235)

Project Key Words. Molecular Ecology, Bats, Wildlife Conservation, Non-invasive genetics. Post summary. Bats are considered to be keystone species and an essential part of healthy ecosystems worldwide, particularly due to their role in controlling insect pest populations. Read more

BBSRC NLD Doctoral Training Partnership: Exploring interactions between co-infecting trypanosomatids and other pathogens in a Drosophila model

Co-infection of individual hosts by multiple pathogens species is a common phenomenon observed in natural populations. Nevertheless, our understanding of the interactions between different pathogens and the underlying molecular mechanisms remains considerably limited. Read more

Design of microflyers for environmental monitoring

In the next decade, distributed sensor network systems made of small flying sensors, from dust-scale to insect-scale, will enable a step change in monitoring natural disasters and remote areas. Read more
