  Uncovering 3D genome architecture in annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  Angry Damsels: Do Species Interactions After Overfishing Enhance or Inhibit Coral Reef Recovery?
  Dr S Keith, Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reef species are undergoing widespread mortality under increasingly frequent mass coral bleaching events, which will continue until global efforts reduce CO2 emissions.
  (BBSRC DTP) Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  Bending the curve – restoring biodiversity by understanding taxon-biome-responses to global threats
  Ms K Jones
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor – Prof Kate Jones (University College London). Co-supervisors – Prof Rob Ewers (Imperial College London), Dr Marcus Rowcliffe (Zoological Society of London).
  Ecology and evolution of the earliest terrestrial animals. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Xiaoya Ma, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology & Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Aerodynamic force production and efficiency during wing rotation in flapping flight
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S.M. Walker, Prof R Bomphrey, Dr G N Askew
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insects are the most agile and manoeuvrable of all flying animals and far surpass anything that humans can create at similar scales.
  Moving about a new axis: The role of the backbone in major adaptive radiations of terrestrial vertebrates
  Dr KT Bates, Dr K Jones, Dr P Cox, Dr J Gardiner
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary shifts in locomotion underpin major ecological transitions in vertebrates. Our understanding of how key innovations in the locomotor system drive taxonomic and ecological diversity during evolutionary transitions is largely based on the limbs.
