  Welfare and stress related effects in laboratory-reared fishes
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been much interest in the rearing conditions of both commercial and laboratory fishes and the welfare implications of these.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick

  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
