  Statistical Genetics: Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human cardiovascular and haematological traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.
  Quantifying adaptive genetic variation for the conservation and management of East African tropical trees
  Prof A Jump, Dr S Cavers, Dr D Odee, Dr C Kettle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to undertake research focussing on understanding adaptive genetic diversity to underpin management decision making for East African tropical tree species.
  Genetic Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease: Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Prof M Farrall, Dr AG Goel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Cardiovascular health in patients with inflammatory joint diseases: a genetic approach to understanding excess mortality
  Dr J Bowes, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Patients with chronic inflammatory joint diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) which is the major contributory factor to the observed early mortality in these patient groups.
  The Interplay of abiotic and biotic factors as drivers of biodiversity changes across space and time
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof OE Gaggiotti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Darwin’s works and the evolutionary synthesis have led to a clear consensus that ecological and evolutionary processes are inextricably linked1.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  Understanding and curing genetic kidney disease.
  Prof M Saleem, Dr G Welsh
Applications accepted all year round
Genetic variation is the fundamental basis of inherited disease and acquired diseases such as cancer. Current technologies allow us to investigate diseases where only one or a small number of variants of genes are altered e.g CF or Huntingtons disease.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Using machine learning to dissect genetic effects on DNA methylation heterogeneity in cancer
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr D Sproul:, Dr G Sanguinetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Genetic and epigenetic heterogeneity are fundamental hallmarks of cancer. Advances in high-throughput sequencing have resulted in the extensive characterisation of intra-tumoural genetic heterogeneity.
  (BBSRC DTP) Manipulating plant genetic diversity to improve resilience in grasslands
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For years the agricultural sector has pursued cultivation of crops with identical genetic properties so that variation in the resulting phenotype is as small as possible.
