  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.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Holey hypervolumes! The multivariate geometry of adaptive radiation.
  Dr A MacColl, Dr S Preston
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We seek a maths, physics or engineering graduate with an interest in biology, or a biologist with good mathematical skills, for an exciting, international, interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD to investigate multidimensional variation in the shape (phenotype) of fish, and the ecological characteristics of the environments they inhabit.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridium difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospital and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.

  Holey hypervolumes! The multivariate geometry of adaptive radiation
  Dr A MacColl
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
We seek a maths, physics or engineering graduate with an interest in biology, or a biologist with good mathematical skills, for an exciting, international, interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD to investigate multidimensional variation in the shape (phenotype) of fish, and the ecological characteristics of the environments they inhabit.
  Will natural selection save the Tasmanian devil from extinction?
  Mr R Hamede
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Tasmanian devils are threatened by two fatal transmissible cancers, devil facial tumour disease (DFTD), firstly observed in 1996 and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2), discovered in 2016.
  Development of bioinformatic methods for real-time analysis of bacterial and viral outbreaks
  Assoc Prof AE Darling, Dr M Fourment
Applications accepted all year round
We are looking for a talented PhD student to develop methods for real-time. analysis of bacterial and viral outbreaks. The project will be part of.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Deep learning algorithms for evolutionary inferences from contemporary and ancient DNA data
  Dr M Fumagalli, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
One of the most elusive questions in evolutionary biology is to what extent adaptation has shaped genomes of extant species and populations.
