  The behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds.
  Prof T Guilford
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

Merton College are seeking outstanding applicants for a DPhil scholarship to conduct research at the Department of Zoology on the behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds in the Oxford Navigation Group (OxNav) under the supervision of Professor Tim Guilford.
  (BBSRC DTP) Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.

  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.
  Animal and Robotics Interactions: Deploying UAV's to Enable Proximal Sensing and Management of Livestock
  Assoc Prof M Trotter, Prof S Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between animals and robotics is an emerging and exciting area of cross-disciplinary research. There are numerous opportunities for robotics, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in particular, to make an impact on the way in which livestock are managed.
  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.
  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.
