There is a PhD opportunity for a Chinese student to study the migration of crop pest, the fall armyworm, with Jason Chapman and Regan Early. The details of how to apply can be found here. On the projects page find the project title "Predicting migratory routes and outbreak potential of an invasive crop pest, the fall armyworm, in China and Europe" in the agriculture section. Check out some of our crop pest research here.


Regan is also currently advertising a PhD with Dr Jon Bennie and the Met Office. This PhD will tackle the interface between biology, ecology, meteorology and human health, to understand the consequences of environmental change for both the UK’s countryside and the millions who suffer from hay fever and pollen allergies.

If you’re interested in pursuing self-funded Masters By Research projects with the group, or in developing funding proposals, please contact Regan Early.
