  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.
  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.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  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.
  Uncovering 3D genome architecture in annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Understanding the ecology and coevolution of aphids and parasitoids to improve natural biocontrol measures in field crops
  Dr I Capellini, Dr R Girling, Dr J Bishop, Dr A Murchie
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Parasitoids are insects that play a fundamental ecological role in both natural and agricultural ecosystems by regulating the population of herbivore pests, such as aphids.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Willow (Salix spp): The potential of a tannin-rich tree fodder to reduce ammonia emissions and improve productivity of dairy cattle
  Dr K Theodoridou, Dr S Stergiadis, Prof S Huws
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Farm productions systems face multiple challenges as animal products need to be produced with less environmental impact without affecting animal welfare.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form.
  Soma-Germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signalling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis
  Dr F Papagiannouli
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells are critical for multi-cellular development, since they supply the cells that build up our bodies and replenish, as we age, worn out, damaged, and diseased tissues.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Improving nutrition efficiency and milk quality in dairy production
  Dr S Stergiadis, Dr K Theodoridou, Prof S Huws, Dr T Yan
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Milk is the most nutritious single food but also a major provider of saturated fatty acids (SFA) in the UK diets.
  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.
  Restoring farmland for recovery of the threatened marsupial eastern barred bandicoot in Tasmania, Australia
  Prof M Jones
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern barred bandicoot (Perameles gunnii) was previously widely distributed across northern and eastern Tasmania. It has progressively disappeared from the Tasmanian Midlands over the last 30 years and small populations in the north and northeast are under threat.
  Functional morphology and masticatory biomechanics of British red squirrels.
  Dr P Cox, Prof P O'Higgins
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The introduction of the Eastern grey squirrel to the UK in the late nineteenth century has had a dramatic effect on the native population of red squirrels.
  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).
  Evolutionary paleoproteomics and human origins
  Dr P Skoglund
Application Deadline: 17 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Pontus Skoglund’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Ancient genome sequencing has revolutionized our understanding of the evolutionary history of modern humans and close relatives such as Neandertals (Skoglund and Mathieson 2018).
  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.
