  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round
Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  The genomic signatures of adaptation in harmful Sargassum blooms of the Caribbean Sea (CASE studentship)
  Dr J.H. Bothwell, Dr M Kapralov
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This CASE studentship will apply evolutionary genomic approaches to understand environmental adaptation in the Caribbean harmful bloom-forming macroalgae, Sargassum natans.
  Integrative Computational Biology and Machine Learning: Combining computational biology, computational chemistry, and machine learning techniques with biological big data to unravel the higher genomic code of life
  Dr A Sahakyan, Prof P McHugh
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
In the Sahakyan Group, we strive to make computational biology maximally independent from empirical experimental data, by basing our models and predictions on genomic sequences and core biological mechanisms.
  Analytic methods for detecting and making sense of somatic genomic rearrangements
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round
Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  The genomic basis of bacterial symbiosis in deep-sea annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin, Dr L Henry, Dr Y Wurm
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
A funded PhD position is available to start in September 2019. Mutualistic relationships between bacteria and complex organisms have repeatedly evolved and this has allowed host organisms to exploit new environments and foods.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Combining genetic and functional genomic data to reveal underlying mechanisms of human disease
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr K Baillie, Prof C Haley
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. The unprecedented access to genome-wide association (GWAS) signals for a wide variety of human diseases opens up new opportunities to improve understanding of the underlying mechanisms of disease and identify new therapies.
  Identification of genetic and genomic factors underpinning excess risk of rheumatoid arthritis in females
  Dr D Plant, Prof A Barton
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Affecting over 400,000 adults in the UK, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common disease that causes pain, swelling and damage in the joints.
  Copy number variation in gibbon genomes
  Dr E Hollox, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Genome structure, including the number and arrangement of chromosomes (called the karyotype), is relatively stable across evolutionary time, with only a few small changes between human and gorilla karyotypes, for example.
  The genomic basis of chiral variation and speciation in mirror-image snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr A MacColl
Applications accepted all year round
While our bodies are bilaterally symmetric on the outside, the internal organs exhibit consistent, directional asymmetries in their position or anatomy, such that left/right positional errors are an important class of human birth defect, and in later life, numerous diseases affect seemingly symmetric organs in a lateralised fashion.
  PhD: Modelling the environmental and genomic interactions in maize under changing climatic conditions
  Dr J Gaskell
Applications accepted all year round
This student will develop mathematical models to understand the sensitivity of maize growth to hydroclimatic change. The project will use data produced by the project team, and previous work, to identify environmental preferences and yield differences between maize varieties.
