  The Ecological and Evolutionary consequences of tropicalisation
  Dr P Fenberg, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Climate warming is creating novel ecological communities whereby species compositions and interactions differ from a historical baseline.
  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.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  Investigating the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms facilitating the rapid divergence of male genitalia in Drosophila
  Dr M D Santos-Nunes
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  PhD position in gut microbiota research/microbial evolutionary genomics
  Prof P Engel
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on social bees to address current questions about the evolution, function, and ecology of specialized gut microbial communities.
  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
  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.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
