Development and evolution of animal biomineral skeletons

Project Rationale. Uncovering the developmental, molecular, and cellular mechanisms by which different organisms grow and develop is fundamental for understanding the evolution of the diversity of animal forms seen on the planet today. Read more

Paleovirology - the dynamics of viral cross species transmissions

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. Viral evolution, cross-species transmissions, and the evolution of host/virus interactions, can all be addressed via the discipline of paleovirology. Read more

PhD positions in Evolution and Ecology at University College London – starting 2023

The Department for Genetics, Evolution and Environment (GEE) at UCL welcomes applicants who are passionate about ecology and evolutionary biology to apply to our fully funded London NERC and BBSRC LIDo Doctoral Training Partnerships, to start in October 2023. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - Understanding the links between animal sexual traits and environmental change

Humans have brought unprecedented changes to environments worldwide. A major priority for conservation is to understand how organisms will respond to environmental change, both in terms of the vulnerability of species to extinction and how populations may evolve when faced with novel pressures.

FarmGTEx: Genetic determinants of gene expression across farm animal tissues

Deciphering the molecular function of farm animal genomes and their variation across animals is fundamental to understand the cellular mechanisms underpinning economically important traits, and to improve and tailor genomic prediction within and across populations. Read more

Genomic and behavioural mechanisms driving the evolution of a novel visual signal in smoky rubyspot damselflies

Sexually selected animal visual signals have long fascinated biologists and lay-people alike, and the processes by which novel signals evolve has long been an important area of research among biologists interested in sexual selection [1]. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: The evolution of sociability in subsocial animals

Animals of all kinds of species form groups. Group-living affects may ecological and evolutionary processes, such as the transmission of disease and information, the strength of predation pressure and resource competition, and the effectiveness of different forms of selection for driving evolutionary change.

QUADRAT DTP: Evolution and consequences of mating systems for range dynamics and species’ responses to environmental changes

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary processes that shape species’ geographic ranges and affect their dynamics such as expansions, contractions and shifts, is critical to understand, predict and manage species’ responses to ongoing global environmental changes. Read more
