  (BBSRC DTP) Microbial population diversity as a driver of antibiotic resistance evolution
  Dr D Gifford, Dr C Knight, Dr T Gilman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Classically, microbial evolution has been thought to progress via rapid sweeps of beneficial mutations that quickly fix within populations—the so-called ‘strong selection, weak mutation’ model.
  Experimental evolution of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in media replicating the conditions of the upper and lower airways
  Dr D Neill, Dr J Fothergill
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) is an important bacterial pathogen in people with cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung conditions. During early infection, Pa adapts to the environment of the respiratory tract, leading to long-lasting, difficult to treat infections.
  Continental weathering and secular evolution of redox-sensitive isotope systematics
  Dr M Andersen, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The weathering of continental crust is a major driver of Earth’s climate. It helps regulate atmospheric CO2 content as well as provides soluble ions to the oceans.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Evolution and genomics of mortality and senescence in tetrapods
  Dr A Urrutia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Investigating the co-evolution of chromosome organisation and gene expression
  Dr M Farré Belmonte
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Our lab aims to study genome evolution and the genetic changes associated with individual and species differences, applying the newest comparative and functional genomic techniques and the great wealth of genomic data available.
  Efficient Co-Evolution of Software Architectures and Artificial Intelligence Components
  Dr J Ringert, Dr I Tyukin
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Artificial intelligence (AI) is pervading the world around us. It is the driving enabler for innovations and products from autonomous vehicles, to enhanced health care, to efficient crisis response, to simple things like recommending the right movie for inspiration.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution of discrete and continuous morphological characters
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Sansom, Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Advances in the acquisition and analysis of genetic sequence data have led to an increasing emphasis and reliance on molecular data to build phylogenies and test models of evolution, yet phenotypic evidence (morphology) remains vital.
  Natural adaptation of extremophile microalgae to acid mine drainage environments through experimental evolution
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Pollution from waste-streams such as abandoned mine sites is a major environmental problem that has deleterious consequences for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world.
  Environmentally-dependent mutation rates across evolutionary scales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Dr D Gifford, Dr R Krašovec
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
How natural selection depends on the environment has long been studied, but evolution relies on other mechanisms too. In particular, evolution depends on mutations.
