  Investigating the developmental genetic mechanisms controlling the timing of body segmentation in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.D. Peel, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Prof I A Hope
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The arthropods (flies, beetles, spiders etc.) have obvious externally visible repeating body units, while vertebrates exhibit internal segmentation in the form of vertebrae, ribs and associated muscle.
  Experimental evolution of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in media replicating the conditions of the upper and lower airways
  Dr D Neill, Dr J Fothergill
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) is an important bacterial pathogen in people with cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung conditions. During early infection, Pa adapts to the environment of the respiratory tract, leading to long-lasting, difficult to treat infections.
  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.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Evolution and genomics of mortality and senescence in tetrapods
  Dr A Urrutia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round
Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  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.
  The evolution of symbiosis: understanding the ecological conditions that drive the emergence of stable symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Prof D Cameron, Dr A Beckerman, Dr AJ Wood
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Symbiosis—the living together of unlike organisms—has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  How did the first animals and plants change our planet?
  Dr B Mills, Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the changes in Earth’s surface conditions during the Paleozoic era, which saw the evolution of land plants and the rapid diversification of animal life.
