  SWBio DTP PhD project - Extremophilic enzymes: investigating structural adaptation through rapid physics-based geometric simulation
  Prof A Walker
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  *EASTBIO* What promotes rapid convergent adaptation under extreme selection? A population genomics approach in silent Hawaiian crickets
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. PROJECT GOALS. Whether and how organisms adapt to extreme environmental selection pressures often determines population and species fates.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Adaptations of Antarctic penguins in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr J Younger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  The evolution and genetics of sexual dimorphism
  Dr A Wright, Prof J Slate, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Males and females of the same species are often subject to very different selection pressures and can show major differences in morphology, behaviour and life history.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  EASTBIO: Temporal Adaptation to Antifungal Treatment in Pathogenic Fungi
  Dr D Childers, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Delma Childers (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/delma.childers. Dr Edward Wallace (University of Edinburgh).
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Adaptation of 3 GHz cavity design of linear accelerators for proton radiotherapy
  Dr R Apsimon, Dr H Owen, Dr G Burt
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the development of high-gradient radiofrequency linear accelerators proton therapy.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Role of cytidine deaminase in (epi)genetic adaptation of the plant immune system.
  Prof J Ton, Dr L Smith, Dr J Stassen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As sessile organisms, plants are masters in adapting to environmental stresses. Recent work from the Ton lab has shown that plants employ epigenetic mechanisms to prime their immune system long-term against potential pests and diseases.
