  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.
  How common are heritable microbes, and why?
  Dr SJ Cornell, Prof G Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Heritable endosymbionts are extremely common, being observed in around 30% of all arthropod species. Their pervasiveness is very puzzling from an evolutionary perspective, because any host species represents a dead end to a symbiont that is only transmitted vertically (i.e.
  In silico modelling of parasite dynamics
  Prof O Jones
Applications accepted all year round
The management of infectious disease is a major concern for conservation of wild fish stocks and is a primary constraint on the viability and sustainability of farmed fish.
  Biodiversity’s contribution to future ecosystem service provision under global climate change
  Dr S G Willis, Dr D Hole, Prof M Whittingham
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The world’s biodiversity is in crisis, and continuing habitat loss and degradation, combined with ongoing climate change will mean species are increasingly threatened in future.
  Measuring the seasonally changing condition of ungulates in temperate and semi-desert environments
  Dr S G Willis, Dr P Stephens
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The body condition of individuals is a major determinant of which animals breed in a population, and of the likelihood of a population thriving or declining, yet studies on condition in wild species are rare.
  Optically transparent armour reinforced with microbially-synthesized cellulose nanofibres with self-repair capability
  Dr K Lee
Applications accepted all year round
Microbially-synthesised cellulose nanofibres, more commonly known as bacterial cellulose (BC), is an ultra-pure form of cellulose nanofibers with mechanical performance exceeding that of single E-glass or Kevlar fibre.
  Development of a neutron macromolecular crystallography (NMX) refinement software module and its implementation in the Refmac5 package of the CCP4 suite
  Research Group: Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics
  Dr R Steiner
Applications accepted all year round
To start. 01/01/2019. Award. A 3 year PhD studentship. School. Basic & Medical Biosciences. Supervisors. Professor Roberto Steiner & Dr Garib N Murshudov.
  Queen Mary University of London and A*STAR PhD Studentship: Investigating Immune micro-environment in pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr HM Kocher
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
This PhD programme is a collaboration between A*STAR and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) to provide research opportunities for PhD students at A*STAR Research Institutes.
  The nuclear YAP/TAZ interactome in normal versus neoplastic human epidermal cells
  Dr G Walko, Prof D Tosh, Dr K Vance
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) originates from the epidermal keratinocyte. It is the second most common skin cancer in the UK and world-wide.
  Chemical tools to investigate 3D promoter structure
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof N Gilbert, Prof M Bradley
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This is one of several projects available on an MRC funded 4-year multi-disciplinary PhD programme in Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease at the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
