Are you holding Master’s degree and looking for fully funded PhD positions? University of Hull, England invites online application for multiple funded PhD Programs / fully funded PhD positions in various research areas.

Candidates interested in fully funded PhD positions can check the details and may apply as soon as possible. Interested and eligible applicants may submit their online application for PhD programs via the University’s Online Application Portal. 

1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Computational modelling of insect energy

Summary of PhD Program:

We invite applications for a fully-funded, full time PhD studentship to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team (including behavioural biologists and physiologists) on a project funded by UKRI (BBSRC) that is aiming to understand and predict the effects of the thermo-nutritional developmental environment upon the life history of two key UK wild bee species, and the consequent implications for pollination services. The aim of the PhD studentship will be to develop computational models that will form a key part of the overall project, underpinning our predictions of how environmental variables affect the life history of two bee species.

Application Deadline: 2 October 2023

2. Fully Funded PhD Position in genetic variation

Summary of PhD Program:

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the second most common cause of death in the UK and therefore a significant disease burden. von Willebrand factor (VWF) plays an important role in the haemostatic system and there is considerable natural variation in VWF levels; levels have been associated with clinical outcomes in single-centre acute coronary syndromes (ACS) patient cohorts, while high levels have also been associated with increased risk of myocardial infarction. In addition, VWF genetic variation independently influences VWF levels. There is therefore a timely opportunity to test whether VWF genetic variation and levels can predict CVD outcomes and inform personalised therapies for patient benefit.

Application Deadline: 29 September 2023

3. Fully Funded PhD Position in Musculoskeletal adaptations to extreme biting in birds

Summary of PhD Program:

Much of birds’ diversity is encapsulated by the beak, a structure that is strongly associated with dietary ecology and feeding behaviour but also acts as a multipurpose tool in several non-feeding behaviours. Despite their relatively small sizes, some birds are capable of generating exceptionally high bite forces that may be several times higher than their own body mass. In particular, Psittaciformes (parrots and cockatoos) experience extreme loads through the beak, both during feeding and non-feeding behaviours (e.g. biting, object manipulation, climbing). This clade also shows several traits that intuitively seem adapted to either produce or resist high forces in the skull, including two de novo jaw muscles; a “reinforcing” ring of bone beneath the eye; flared palatines providing greater muscle attachment areas; and a deep, wide beak. However, these adaptations are not always present, and have arisen via convergent evolution several times within the group.
