PhD in evolutionary biology - retracing the origins of C4 photosynthesis in the grass Alloteropsis semialata

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species. Read more

EASTBIO: How do human fungal pathogens remodel their genome to acquire drug resistance?

  Research Group: Infection Medicine
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Fungal pathogens are a huge burden on human health, killing almost 2 million people every year. With only 3 classes of anti-fungal drugs available and a sharp increase in resistance seen in clinics, there is an urgent need for developing novel strategies against antifungal resistance.

EASTBIO Machine Learning methods for Experimental Evolution studies

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Evolutionary biologists have long been interested in the question how populations adapt to changing environments. In experimental evolution studies replicate populations are allowed to adapt to novel but controlled laboratory environments. Read more

*Eastbio*: Decoding the genetics of cognitive functions

How did human cognitive abilities evolve? What are the genes involved in cognition? Are different cognitive functions, such as language and mathematical abilities, controlled by the same mechanisms? Answering these questions is very challenging, but unprecedented resources have allowed initial and highly promising discoveries in this field. Read more

EASTBIO On the origin of environmental RNA interference: multicopy gene families silenced in nematodes

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
RNA molecules can be secreted by cells into their environment, move between cells, and even between different organisms, potentially encoding “messages” that can be understood by the receiver. Read more

Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks. Read more

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more

The genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

*** Fully funded 3.5 year PhD position ***. Life on Earth is facing unprecedented challenges as a result of climate change. Understanding how organisms rapidly adapt to their environment is essential in not only reducing the number of species that will go extinct, but also in safeguarding future food production.
