Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite relationships

Interactions between parasites and their hosts are one of the major driving forces in ecology and evolution. Social insects, as one of the dominant group of land animals and possessors of complex social systems, provide a fascinating host system within which to study these forces. Read more

EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

TOOL CRAFTING IN NEW CALEDONIAN CROWS

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
SUMMARY. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their ability to manufacture complex foraging tools from plant materials. Read more

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: The causes and Consequences of Bacterial Speciation

Speciation is well established field of study for higher organisms yet is hardly ever mentioned for bacteria. Underlying this is the ongoing debate about whether bacteria form species in the same sense as higher organisms. Read more

Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Read more

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

Genomics of sexual trait expression in black grouse

  Research Group: Hoffman research group (molecular ecology)
An outstanding opportunity is available for a PhD student to work on the evolutionary genomics of sexual trait expression in an iconic avian model system, the black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix). The position is available in Joe Hoffman’s research group (www.thehoffmanlab.com) at the Department of Animal Behaviour at Bielefeld University and is fully funded for three years.
