Two PhD Positions Available

Two Studentships (PhD) are available, starting in 2014. They are both part of the newly funded ACCE programme for Doctoral Training linking Sheffield with Liverpool and York University.

The FIRST,

Adaptation under Climate Change: Coping with Predation and Variation in Food (Links to Bigger Description)

is hosted here at Sheffield with me, and co-supervised by Dr. Stewart Plaistow at Liverpool. This project will combine physiology, ecology and evolution to tackle the important question about how adaptation to climate change works under realistic ecological conditions where food and predation are important. Also part of the project are Dr. David Atkinson at Liverpool and Dr. Dylan Childs at Sheffield.

Contact me directly about this one, for now.

The SECOND is hosted at Liverpool University focusing on Parasites and Food Web Complexity and Structure. This is a good project for a mathematically minded individual. The lead PI is Dr. Andrew Fenton, at Liverpool. It includes me, Dr. Owen Petchey in Zurich and Dr. Kieren Sharkey at Liverpool.
