  Prof A Lynch, Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a number of questions that arise from proteomic and RNA studies in cancer that have clear parallels in the world of ecology.
  Automated evaluation of geo-political risk.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr C Donovan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are massive amounts of data presented to the internet in real or near-to-real-time that allow monitoring of economic and societal conditions, amongst other things.
  Bayesian identifiability for log-linear models.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Log-linear modelling is the standard approach for investigating the full joint dependence structure between categorical variables such as phenotypes and SNPs.
  Design of Experiments
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof R Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A topic in design of experiments, to be decided between the student and the supervisor. It could focus on methods for constructing particular types of design; methods of, and problems in, randomization; two-phase experiments; experiments in a particular area of application..
  Investigating modes of action of genetic risk variants through integrated analysis of multiple high-dimensional “omics” data.
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof A Lynch, Dr M Papathomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of genomic loci that are associated with higher risk of a trait (often a disease such as breast cancer).
  Modelling encounters in surveys of unmarked animal populations
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers, Dr R Glennie, Dr M Rowcliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many wild animal populations are monitored by placing detectors (e.g. cameras or microphones) in a study area and recording encounters with individual animals.
  Modelling local population dynamics for whale sharks in the Maldives
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data for this project will be provided by the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme. The broad aim is to further the understanding of the local population dynamics of this enigmatic species.
  Spatial capture-recapture methods for snow leopards
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers, Dr R Glennie, Dr K Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We do not know how many snow leopards are left in the world. Snow leopard range country governments and scientists have launched an ambitious initiative to develop a robust assessment of the global snow leopard population.
  Statistical models for digital ecological surveys
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecological surveys are the foundation on which evidence-based conservation of the planet’s biodiversity and wildlife resources is built.
