The European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen invites applications for a. PhD student position. in project A10 of CRC 889. limited to 3.5 years, part-time (65 %) | salary according to TV-L.
  The genomic signatures of adaptation in harmful Sargassum blooms of the Caribbean Sea (CASE studentship)
  Dr J.H. Bothwell, Dr M Kapralov
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This CASE studentship will apply evolutionary genomic approaches to understand environmental adaptation in the Caribbean harmful bloom-forming macroalgae, Sargassum natans.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Data mining for microbial adaptation to climate change - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Microbes are key members of nutrient and energy cycles in all global ecosystems. Whole meta genome DNA sequencing is increasingly used to characterise microbial ecosystems and vast amounts of data are deposited in the public domain every year.
  Democracy in transit: The circulation, adaptation and appropriation of democratic practices in environmental policy (PALLETTHU19SF)
  Dr H Pallett, Dr J Chilvers
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Practices of democratic governance and decision-making have been institutionalised in environmental policy, yet are constantly evolving and travelling, and new democratic practices are continually being developed.
  Metabolomic studies of E. coli adaptation from anaerobic to aerobic growth
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
Escherichia coli is a commensal organism that lives in the human gut. Occasionally it gives rise to food poisoning incidents, but mainly it is important for digestion and uptake of nutrients.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
