Entomology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

We have 15 Entomology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

Population genomics of insect communities

Declines in insect populations and species are arguably one of the most concerning symptoms of the biodiversity crisis, given their importance in underpinning food webs and ecosystem processes. Read more

Forging a Digital Twin of the Gut-Brain Axis

Our guts shape how we think, and our minds shape how our guts work. Intestinal tracks of all animals, including humans, contain massive numbers of neurons which are essentially brains unto themselves. Read more

The Evolution of Vision in Mosquitoes

Background . Due to their capacity to transmit viruses such as Zika and parasites like Plasmodium (the causative agent of malaria), mosquitos are regarded by the World Health Organization as one of the most lethal organisms on our planet (WHO | Global vector control response 2017–2030, 2020). Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Effects of age on disease defence strategies in ants

Group living offers favourable conditions for the spread of infectious diseases, because high population densities and frequent social contacts facilitate pathogen transmission. Read more

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

Ecological geometry: applying geometric and topological concepts and tools to model how animals interact with each other and their environment

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. 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
