  Joint Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics of Dispersal and Female Multiple Mating: Empirical Test
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Offshore Energy and Sustainable Marine Ecosystems: A Bayesian Approach to Cumulative Effects Assessment
  Dr B E Scott, Dr N D Trifonova, Dr J H Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
To avoid catastrophic climate change the world needs to switch to renewable energy. This will require the placement and operation of very large offshore windfarms (fixed and floating) as well as tidal stream, lagoons and wave energy developments.
  Promoting Healthy Fish in Aquaculture by Genome-Wide Functional Annotation of Immune Responses
  Prof S Martin, Dr D Macqueen
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
Aquaculture is the fastest growing food sector globally, and this expansion will continue in future years alongside the rising human population.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  14 ESR (PhD Student) positions in chicken welfare, genomics, and comparative neuroscience
Public opinion across Europe demands that laying hens are kept in the highest possible welfare conditions. In Europe, this has led to a ban on battery cages, which came into effect from 2012.
  PhD Studentship in Forebrain Regulation of the Avian Stress Response
  Dr T Smulders, Dr T Boswell
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
Value of award. £35,566.92 p.a. before taxes (approximately), including fees. Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 30 September 2019 for 3 years.
  The Ecology and Economy of Extinctions in the Era of Climate Change
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso
Application Deadline: 6 May 2019
The Nottingham Trent University’s MacroBiodiversity Lab ( of the School of Science and Technology, is inviting applications for a funded PhD scholarship to commence in October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of forests in Europe are managed and underwent considerable changes in tree species richness, species composition and genetic diversity over the last few centuries.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
