  Reducing harm to wildlife from rodent pest control strategies
  Prof J Hurst, Prof P Stockley, Prof R Shore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Current strategies to control rodent pests have substantial environmental impact, relying on baits that are highly toxic to vertebrates and attract non-target species such as wood mice, bank voles and field voles.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., Ebola, pandemic influenza, chikungunya fever etc.).
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Transgenerational effects of pollutants: the role of the egg
  Dr H Muhamad Ali, Dr S J Plaistow, Prof R Goodacre
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic stress is altering our planet at an unprecedented rate and has major implications for global biodiversity, health and the economy.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  *EASTBIO* Building for a changing world: how do breeding birds respond to temperature variation?
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof S Healy, Prof S Meddle
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. It may seem obvious that a bird’s nest plays an important role in reproduction. For example, the eggs or young in a nest that is exposed to predators, in a nest that gets too wet or too cold or is too loosely attached to a branch are unlikely to survive.
  *EASTBIO* Can we predict supergenes? Testing the genetic basis of a colour polymorphism in an aposematic bug.
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Understanding the genetic basis of traits remains central to understanding fundamental biological questions – such as how genetic variation maintained in populations – and to developing genetic interventions for beneficial or pest species.
  *EASTBIO* Control of the ParaHox genes in chordate evolution and development
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr D E K Ferrier, Prof J K Dale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulatory elements of these genes in both the invertebrate sea squirt Ciona intestinalis and the vertebrate Gallus gallus (chicken).
  *EASTBIO* Impact of the microbiome on development and health
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
