  Use of random regression for optimum modelling of growth curves for body weight in UK beef cattle and sheep and estimation of Genotype x Environment interactions
  Dr R Mrode
Application Deadline: 20 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently multivariate systems are utilized for the computation of breeding values in the UK national Beef and Sheep herds but these models are inadequate in modelling the growth curves of animals.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most common cardiac disease in humans and cats, occurs spontaneously in 15% of domestic cats and may cause heart failure, cardioembolic complication or death.
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Modelling population dynamics from detection survey data
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof L Thomas, Dr R Glennie
Applications accepted all year round
