  Are farm animal-associated Salmonella hyper-susceptible to bacteriophage killing?
  Prof J Hinton
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) is a bacterial pathogen that generally causes gastroenteritis in humans.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Aetiopathogenesis and genomic architecture of resistance to claw horn disruption lesions in dairy cattle
  Prof G Oikonomou
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Maintaining good foot health is one of the most critical challenges the dairy industry faces today. This is because poor foot health leads to reduced mobility of the animal and causes lameness.
  Genetics of quantitative traits through a multi-omic approach
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Understand the genetics of inflammatory bowel disease using single-cell data
  Prof F Powrie, Dr L Lam
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The gastrointestinal tract is a complex ecosystem that has co-evolved with trillions of commensal microbes.
  From genes to species: Investigating the contribution of evolutionary change in tartan to mating behaviour and reproductive isolation.
  Dr M D Santos-Nunes, Dr S Arif
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The genetic basis underlying the vast diversity observed in animal male genitalia has eluded evolutionary research for decades. Recently we uncovered a gene that explains a large difference in organ size between species.
  Polyploidy-related structural and functional changes in the Arabidopsis genome.
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round
My research interests lie in the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Combating Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr C A May
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from trafficking high-value, CITES-protected, endangered species between countries, fraudulent misidentification of by-catch fish filleted at sea (estimated at ~25%), through to substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  Combatting Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr J Wetton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  Plant genetics and molecular biology - dissecting the role of receptor-like kinases
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
