  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  QUADRAT DTP: Global profiles of species declines and success in the era of climate change
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

The alarming extinctions of species worldwide pose unprecedented challenges for wildlife and human wellbeing [1].
  Assessing a socially optimal level for global livestock
  Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Should we “go vegan”? The project will consider the environmental and social costs and benefits of livestock production and consumption with a view to defining whether and how patterns of both might be optimised globally.
  MVLS Doctoral Training Programme Studentships 2020

 . APPLICATION DEADLINE. 20 JANUARY 2020. Stipend. £15,009 (2019/20 rate). Start Date. 1 October 2020. Fully funded. 3.5 years.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.

Funding Type

PhD Type

TO APPLY, CLICK ’VISIT WEBSITE’. Changes in land use from an increasing human population presents a major challenge for biodiversity (Grimm et al.
  Female competition and maternal effects in a social mammal
  Prof P Stockley, Prof J Hurst
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal effects have important roles in a broad range of ecological and evolutionary processes, such as population dynamics, phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary responses to selection.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Social dynamics in chimpanzees
  Dr N Koyama
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

LJMU Primatology Research Group (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/primatology-research-group). Research Centre in Evolutionary Anthropology & Palaeoecology (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/research-centre-in-evolutionary-anthropology-and-palaeoecology).
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  The impact of sensory pollution on fish navigation.
  Dr C Newport, Dr T Burt de Perera
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals use senses to gather information. However, sensory systems are not perfect and cannot always detect a clear signal. Interfering external sources can cause ‘sensory pollution’ thereby interrupting normal behaviour.
  Determining how ancient human societies and historic climate change have shaped Egypt’s mammalian fauna and its implications for our understanding of the links between people and the environment
  Dr J Bro-Jorgensen, Prof CD Thomas, Dr S Snape
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
  The coherence of stability across ecological scales under multiple stressors
  Dr A Beckerman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020
