  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’).
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Assessment of predatorprey systems in wilderness areas in Eastern Europe
  Ms L Tscheschner, Dr M Heurich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project comprises fieldwork on large predators and their prey, as well as on mesocarnivores and vegetation structure in Polesia (Belarus, Ukraine), a region which is home to large expanses of forest, mires and Europe’s last natural floodplain, the UNESCO World Natural Heritage areas of Bialowieza Primeval Forest (Belarus) and the primeval beech forests of the Carpathian Mountains (Ukraine).
  Does crop diversification influence the physical and chemical traits that attract pests and beneficial insects?
  Prof J Koricheva
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop diversification strategies such as intercropping and agroforestry are increasingly promoted as a means to enhance the sustainability of agriculture and ensure a stable food supply.
  Immunogenetic Status of Salmonid Populations in Scotland
  Prof S Piertney, Dr M Wenzel, Dr D Morris, Dr J Gilbey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

The genetic integrity of wild salmon in Scotland is being challenged by interaction with escaped farmed fish.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Sperm competition dynamics and speciation in mice
  Dr L M Turner, Prof J Wolf
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  Marine Hg species dynamics and distribution.
  Dr L Heimbürger-Boavida
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is one of the least concentrated elements in the ocean, and its complex biogeochemical cyling drives ultimately the biomagnification of methylmercury into marine fish.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Combining carbon, hydrogen and Hg compound specific isotope analysis to understand MMHg origin.
  Dr D Point
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All humans are exposed to toxic monomethyl-Hg (MMHg) when we consume marine fish. The origin of MMHg in marine ecosystems is however not well understood.
