  QUADRAT DTP: The role of sexual selection in facilitating rapid adaptation to climate change
  Dr N Pilakouta, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is arguably the most significant threat to biodiversity in the 21st century. Animal populations are experiencing a period of unprecedented environmental change, leading to higher extinction rates.
  The role of sexual selection in the evolution of sex-biased gene expression
  Dr S Flanagan
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flanagan Lab at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is seeking outstanding applicants for a fully-funded PhD position to study sexual selection and transcriptomics.
  How does serotonin affect sexual behaviour in fish?
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a possible role for serotonin in the sand-castle building behaviour of cichlid fishes, behaviour carried out by males to attract females.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish

Newcastle University is offering five, 4-year PhD studentships in the field of behaviour informatics.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Host-pathogen dynamics in the evolution of ageing and immunity
  Dr B Ashby, Dr N Priest
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.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
  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.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
