insect PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

We have 18 insect PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

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.

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

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

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

Molecular Strategies for Mosquito Monitoring and Surveillance (SETU_2024_238)

Project Key Words. Mosquitoes; Molecular Ecology; Surveillance. Post summary. Mosquitoes, vectors of numerous diseases, are migrating and establishing in new regions, including Ireland. Read more

Biologically Inspired Design and Simulation of Neuromorphic Drone Control

NTHU-UoL Dual PhD Programme between National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan and the University of Liverpool in the UK is a well-established programme, where students spending 2 years at both institutions. Read more

BBSRC NLD Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding host-parasite interactions in the honey bee

Insect pollinators are necessary for the reproductive success of 88% of flowering plants globally. Managed Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) offer mobile pollination services to complement wild pollinators and contribute to this ecosystem service. Read more
