Zoology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 48 Zoology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Computational modelling to understand the key drivers of placental evolution

Supervisory Team. Bram Sengers (SoE), Rohan Lewis (Medicine). Project description. This project will use computational modelling in combination with 3D multiscale multimodal imaging to improve our understanding of placental evolution, in close collaboration between Engineering and Medicine.

Rocky shore biodiversity: Separating the effects of anthropogenic impacts from natural variation and climate change impacts.

The marine environment of Orkney has been subject to a variety of pressures over the years and there is a history of marine monitoring programmes investigating the potential impacts of different activities such as those associated with the oil terminal on Flotta, aquaculture, introduction of non-native species and climate change.

Detecting Schistosoma in Bornean Water Buffalo and implications of environmental variables for zoonotic transmission in the context of climate change

This project will investigate Schistosomiasis in Bornean buffaloes using novel cell free DNA approaches and will determine the presence of Schistosoma in water bodies associated to buffalo farming. Across Southeast Asia, over 200 million people are at risk of Schistosoma infection with up to 200,000 dying of the disease yearly.

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more

Development of an innovative lure and kill strategy for the control of mosquito adults and juveniles

The proposed project, "Development of an innovative lure and kill strategy for the control of mosquito adults and juveniles," is groundbreaking in its integration of entomopathogenic microbes with a lure-and-kill approach. Read more

Understanding Stress Regulation and Stress Resilience in the Avian Brain

Bird brains diverged from mammalian brains over 300 million years ago. Over that time, the hypothalamic and brainstem mechanisms of the stress response have been remarkably conserved. Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans.
