  Hard-wired for success? Unravelling genomic signatures in pollinators.
  Dr M Knight, Dr J Ellis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pollinator species, recognised as essential for ecosystem function, are undergoing rapid declines. One recent exception is the ‘Tree Bumblebee’ Bombus hypnorum.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Comparative genomic analysis of variant features within the Neisseria spp.
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of rapid genome sequencing had generated an explosion of bacterial genome sequence data, much of which has not been fully explored and investigated.
  Genomic determinants of long-term survival in ovarian cancer
  Research Group: Cancer Genetics & Genomics Laboratory
  Prof D. Bowtell, Dr D Garsed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease in which only ~30% of women survive 5 years or more. Despite a poor prognosis, a subset of patients are highly responsive to chemotherapy, and some become long-term survivors (>10 years survival).
  The Genomic Basis of Life History in a Natural Population
  Prof T A Burke, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traits that have more influence on an individual’s fitness are known to be under stronger selection and to have lower heritabilities.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Analytic methods for detecting and making sense of somatic genomic rearrangements
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  Deconstructing the Kraken: using genomic and paleontological approaches to understand how cephalopods adapted to the deep sea.
  Dr J Paps, Prof D Pisani, Dr J Vinther
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalopods are the most intelligent of invertebrates, possessing a sophisticated nervous system, complex behaviorand learning capabilities.
  Identifying genomic and epigenetic factors in different subtypes of pancreatic cancer
  Prof J Carroll
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite recent advances in the treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the median survival remains. Epigenetic pathway alterations are an emerging mechanism for PDA progression.
  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. One way to understand how these networks function is to compare them between related species, to see which genes are common between them and which are unique.
