  RVC PhD: Principal-agent theory assessment to understand inappropriate antibiotic usage in rural Indian’s livestock
  Dr P Alarcon-Lopez, Dr G Fournié
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over and inappropriate use of antibiotics can have negative consequences at both the individual and societal level by being wasteful of resources, leading to deleterious outcomes, and contributing to antibiotic resistance.
  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.
  PhD Studentship in Biomechanics and energetics of foraging in leaf-cutter ants.
  Dr D Labonte
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Evolutionary Biomechanics Laboratory invites applications for a research studentship in the field of insect biomechanics/physiology, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Understanding and predicting the success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini, Dr G Bocedi, Dr P Prodohl, Prof J Travis
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, are a major driver of environmental change that may lead to the extinction of local biodiversity, alter ecosystem services and cause huge economic damage.
  Evolutionary Theory: Exploring the role of intragenomic conflict in the evolution of molecular mechanisms
  Dr F Ubeda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

I research how genes, individuals, and social structures can evolve making use of mathematical models.
  (BBSRC DTP) How is our head formed? – alx1 homeobox gene and craniofacial development
  Dr S Herbert, Dr T Takahashi, Prof M Rattray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent technological advancement of bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing and live imaging has transformed medical research.
  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  Impact of sward type (including multispecies swards) and management system on animal performance, animal health and product quality
  Dr T Boland
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In partnership with University College Dublin, Devenish have a requirement for PhD Researcher to join the Research team, primarily based at The Lands of Dowth, Co.
  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.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
