  Evolutionary acceleration in the Anthropocene
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Prof C Thomas
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to investigate whether rates of evolution, hybridisation and speciation have been accelerating during the Anthropocene.
  The development of Anthropocene biodiversity
  Prof C Thomas, Prof N Milner
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to investigate the impacts of humanity on biodiversity change. You will use a combination of biological and archaeological information to identify losses and gains of species diversity over time, and hence to provide insights into future impacts of human development on biodiversity.

  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence. and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing.
