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

Fully funded studentship in Plastivore Plasticity: characterising metabolic flexibility in an emerging biotechnological system to manage plastic waste

Applications are invited from high-calibre and passionate students seeking to pursue an exciting career in analytical and environmental science research, with a focus to tackle a growing concern with respect to managing plastic waste. . Read more

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more

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

How do environmental cues affect reproduction?

This project is available to self funded candidates only. The School of Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more

The evolutionary basis of feeding preferences: A Geometric Framework approach

Despite the essential role food plays in our lives, we have little understanding of how different nutrients work together to impact functioning, or the reasons individuals choose certain combinations of food. Read more

Impact of immunity on olfactory circuits in flies and ants

Background. Chemosensation and immunity play a key role to combat and prevent infections with pathogens. Both systems involve highly sophisticated mechanisms which share significant similarities as the two systems are capable of detecting specific cues from infectious microbes in the environment via dedicated receptors.
