  (BBSRC DTP) Comparative Genomics of odorant genes in Anopheles mosquitoes
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Walton, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As humans have increased in number and spread around the globe they provide novel and potentially rich sources of food for a variety of pests and pathogens, including mosquitoes.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round
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 vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round
Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round
Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
