  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.

Cephalopods are the most intelligent of invertebrates, possessing a sophisticated nervous system, complex behaviorand learning capabilities.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares, Mr J Elphinstone
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Evolution of gene regulatory networks after gene duplication
  Research Group: Lymphocyte Development
  Prof M Merkenschlager, Dr P Sarkies
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Throughout evolution multicellular organisms have experienced large-scale structural alterations, in which regions of the genome or even the entire genome have been duplicated (1-7).
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.

  Prof W Van Schaik, Dr A McNally
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Gram-positive bacterium Enterococcus faecium is a commensal of the intestinal tract of humans and animals. However, over the last two decades a clone of E.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Studying evolutionary processes with polymorphism-aware phylogenetic models
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr C Kosiol
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent sequencing of genomes of closely related species and of many individuals from the same species enables the study of speciation and the inference of the history of populations.
