  The genomic basis of bacterial symbiosis in deep-sea annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin, Dr L Henry, Dr Y Wurm
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
A funded PhD position is available to start in September 2019. Mutualistic relationships between bacteria and complex organisms have repeatedly evolved and this has allowed host organisms to exploit new environments and foods.
  The evolution of primate vocal signals: from call production to signal function
  Dr J Dunn, Dr C Wascher
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Social Learning in Artificial Evolutionary Systems
  Dr J Borg
Applications accepted all year round
Artificial evolutionary systems, be they simulated or grounded in physical robots, provide a novel and cutting-edge way to investigate the emergence and evolution of adaptive and intelligent behaviours.
  DTC BIO 3 - Reptile Radiations: Investigating the Diversification Dynamics of a Diverse Animal Group
  Dr K Arbuckle
Applications accepted all year round
Reptiles represent a large animal group with over 10,000 species and a wide diversity of biological traits, including examples of model systems for evolutionary radiation and convergence (anole lizards), body size (monitor lizards), body shape (limblessness), and a range of other biologically interesting attributes.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Genomics and Metagenomics of Animal, Environmental and Human Samples to Understand Resistance Gene Transmission Amongst Enterobacteriaceae in Oxfordshire
  Prof S Walker, Dr H S Gweon, Dr D Read, Dr N Stoesser
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major health concern and is exemplified by the rapid emergence of AMR in several key species of the bacterial family of Enterobacteriaceae, such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round
The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  PhD studentship in animal welfare: Refining weaning age in macaques destined for neuroscience research
  Dr M Bateson
Application Deadline: 3 April 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for a three-year PhD. Overview. Newcastle University and the Centre for Macaques (CFM) are looking for a PhD student for an NC3Rs funded project studying the impacts of different weaning ages in laboratory primates (rhesus and cynomologus macaques).
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round
Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  PhD: The application of methanotroph bacteria Methylococcus capsulatus as chicken feed
  Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, researchers from University of Nottingham and Rothamsted Research aim to develop and test a novel nutritional animal feed made from methanotrophic bacteria.
