  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied, Social and Health Psychology Research Group - http://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/applied-social-and-health-psychology.
  Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations
  Prof N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required).
  Mathematical Modelling of the Bovine Reproductive Cycle
  Dr L Creedon, Dr M McAfee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will create mathematical models of aspects of the reproductive cycle of cows. The techniques used will include systems of ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, and networks/graphs.
  ONE Planet DTP - Antarchitecture: constraining East Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics with radar-derived englacial stratigraphy and structure (OP202028)
  Dr N Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Antarctic ice sheet contains a significant potential contribution to future global sea level rise. Satellite-observations of ice sheet change, numerical modelling and geological evidence demonstrates that several parts of the ice sheet could undergo unstable collapse, unlocking this sea level potential.
  Improving cane crop resilience by overcoming the legacy effects on photosynthesis during the recovery from short-term combined stresses
  Dr M Else, Dr A Simkin, Prof T Lawson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

  FoodBioSystems DTP - The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on health outcomes: does an apple aday still keep the doctor away?
  Prof J Woodside, Prof J Lovegrove, Dr A Nugent, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Although increased fruit and vegetable intake has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, this has largely been based on observational evidence, and there are a number of uncertainties regarding these observed links.
  Automatic Activity Analysis, Detection and Recognition
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Activity detection, analysis and recognition are related to several important areas in machine perception research and applications.
  Machine Learning and Cognitive Modelling Applied to Video Games
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Video games have been viewed as an ideal test bed for the study of AI. However, most of the academic work in this area focused on traditional board and card games where limited AI techniques have been tested.
  (A*STAR) Regulatory pathways and skin barrier function
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr J Wong
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is vital for our health and in response to skin wounding, we have a well -orchestrated immune response that heals the breach.
  How does the solar wind change as it expands?
  Dr R Wicks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The solar wind is the tenuous plasma emitted by the Sun that fills the heliosphere. It is the local astrophysical plasma of the Earth and provides a unique environment to observe naturally occurring plasma generated by a star.
