  The effect of urbanisation on biodiversity in space and time
  Dr D Dominoni, Dr R Mancy, Dr S Spatharis, Prof J Matthiopoulos
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urbanisation is one of the most pervasive forms of habitat change. More than half of the world’s human population now resides in urban areas, and urban land cover is projected to triple between 2000 and 2030.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  EASTBIO A Wild Mouse Epigenetic Clock
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Prof T Little, Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. There is tremendous variation in the rate of senescence – the deterioration of physiological performance with age – both between and within species.
  EASTBIO Aging and social behaviour
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Moorad
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aging is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Most current research focuses on how aging affects those individuals who do the aging.
  EASTBIO Immune and physiological determinants of host heterogeneity in pathogen shedding and spreading
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Andrea Wilson, Rosline Institute [email protected] Individuals vary tremendously in their propensity to transmit infections.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  Immune and physiological determinants of host heterogeneity in pathogen shedding and spreading
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Andrea Wilson, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, [email protected] Individuals vary tremendously in their propensity to transmit infections.
  Investigating the contribution of rare genetic variants to disease
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Knott, Dr P Navarro, Prof C Haley
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are revealing the role of common genetic variants in the control of diseases and underlying traits.
  State-dependent cooperation among male and female parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Regan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biparental care occurs when males and females cooperate to provide care for their joint offspring, and although relatively rare, this form of has evolved repeatedly in birds, mammals, amphibians, fishes and insects.
