  EASTBIO: Gut microbiota mediates distinct metabolic effects through dietary fibre fermentation.
  Dr A Ross, Prof P Morgan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Ross (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/alexander-ross.php. Professor Peter Morgan (University of Aberdeen).
  EASTBIO: The impact of soft-fruit phytochemicals on the gut microbiome and bile acid metabolism.
  Dr A Kolb, Dr G McDougall, Dr K Scott, Dr C D Mayer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Andreas Kolb (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/andreas-kolb.php. Dr Gordon McDougall (The James Hutton Institute).
  Explore novel feeding strategies to reduce ammonia emissions from ruminants and improve their productivity
  Dr K Theodoridou, Dr G Arnott
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Agriculture is the dominant source of ammonia (NH3) emissions in N. Ireland, across the UK and throughout the world.
  How does biodiversity contribute to multiple forms of stability in stressed marine invertebrate communities?
  Prof M Emmerson, Dr S Helyar, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. We now know that biodiversity is important because different species simultaneously contribute to multiple ecosystem processes through time and space (Gamfeldt et al.
  Mosquito control using native predators and other novel environmentally friendly methodologies
  Prof J Dick, Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Mosquitoes cause unparalleled mortality in human/animal populations through vectoring of pathogens/parasites. Biological control of mosquitoes has often failed due to use of exotic species agents and lack of effective research on complex species interactions.
  Quantifying the effects of environmental change using multi-level phylogenetically controlled meta-analyses
  Dr H Kunc, Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Anthropogenically driven environmental changes affect our planet at an unprecedented scale and are considered to be a key threat to a sustainable future.
  Sleep in the wild: reproductive benefits and health costs of natural sleep deprivation in fallow deer
  Dr I Capellini, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Like us, animals sleep. When sleeping, animals do not perform any of the activities that enhance their chance of survival or reproduction, such as feeding, finding mates or raising offspring.
  Sustainable Wildlife Management: Socio-Economics Drivers & Implications of Conservation
  Dr M Bozzola, Dr J Houghton
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Wildlife conservation of endangered species has been a growing concern all over the world, as human populations grow and their need for space and resources multiplies.
  The effects of maternal stress on offspring survival in the fallow deer
  Dr D Jennings, Dr I Capellini, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. The impact of climate change and human-induced habitat fragmentation has resulted in an unprecedented planet-wide biodiversity crisis.
  The extinction of the sexier? A global investigation of the role of sexual selection in modern amphibian declines
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr H Kunc
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Biodiversity is undergoing alarming declines worldwide. Modern species extinctions are predominantly attributed to environmental factors, mostly climate change and habitat destruction.
  The relative importance of different species traits for predicting invasion success and impact - a sensitivity analysis approach
  Dr K Farnsworth, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. The overall aim of this project is to develop a better understanding of the factors making a potential invader most dangerous.
  Use of remote sensing data to develop behavioural profiles for global change scenarios
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Habitat loss, human encroachment and climate change are affecting biodiversity globally. Understanding how species can survive under increasingly adverse conditions will be key to protecting their persistence.
  What drives early-life “programming” in the rumen microbiome?
  Prof C Creevey, Dr K Theodoridou, Prof S Huws
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Manipulation of microorganisms in the rumen of cattle, sheep and deer is a promising strategy for lowering their environmental impact while increasing their efficiency.
  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.
