  Mapping temporal change of biodiversity at local, regional, and continental scales
  Dr PK Keil
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We likely face an unprecedented global change of biodiversity caused by humans, which includes species extinctions and invasions over large geographic extents.
  Investigation of the utility of a commercial scale Integrated Multi-trophicAquaculture (IMTA) system with salmon, shellfish and seaweed
  Dr T Telfer, Dr S Carboni
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a clear need to address environmental issues linked to coastal finfish aquaculture. Consensus amongst academics & regulators suggests that IMTA has the potential to improve profitability & reduce environmental impact of finfish aquaculture.
  Towards an open-source, equipment-agnostic framework for automated welfare monitoring in the home cage
  Dr J Brown, Dr X Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mice are the most widely used model organism in all of science. In 2018, 60% of all experimental procedures performed in the UK were carried out using mice, amounting to more than 2.5 million procedures in total.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Welfare and stress related effects in laboratory-reared fishes
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been much interest in the rearing conditions of both commercial and laboratory fishes and the welfare implications of these.
  PhD opportunity in open ocean aquaculture and applied fish physiology and behaviour
  Dr N Herbert
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The New Zealand government has an ambition of reaching $1 billion of sales from aquaculture by 2025, meaning that the $500 million revenue earned in 2018 must be doubled over a relatively short space of time in a country that has limited inshore licenses for aquaculture.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  Evolution of the olfactory system in tsetse flies, vectors of sleeping sickness
  Dr LP Prieto-Godino
Application Deadline: 17 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Lucia Prieto-Godino’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
