  Dental and facial reduction during human evolution and its impact on food processing.
  Dr L Fitton
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
During the evolution of Homo several major changes have occurred in masticatory form including a reduction in facial prognathism and a reduction in dental size.
  Population genetics analyses of Indigenous populations across Australia, New Guinea, and Indonesia, with particular emphasis on reconstructing human migration patterns into Sahul and genetic admixture with archaic hominins
  Dr R Tobler
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking highly motivated students to fill PhD positions and join the landmark Aboriginal Heritage Project (www.adelaide.edu.au/acad/ahp/), which is reconstructing Indigenous Australian history from a remarkable collection of hair samples and ethnographic data.
  Developing innovative statistical and population genetic tools for detecting molecular signatures of natural selection using ancient DNA
  Dr R Tobler
Applications accepted all year round
Data from the Aboriginal Heritage Project and other ancient DNA studies will provide an unprecedented opportunity to build the first detailed spatiotemporal portrait of human genetic adaptation through time.
  SCENARIO: Hominin dispersal, climate and encephalization
  Dr C Venditti, Dr JS Singarayer, Prof M Pagel, Prof S Harrison
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Modern humans arose in Africa around 200,000 years ago and subsequently migrated out of Africa eventually to occupy the entire world – the only Hominin species in an evolutionary lineage that is ~7 million years old to have done so.
  Functional morphology and variability of the auditory system - frameworks in the search for human speech evolution
  Dr A Stoessel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The capacity for vocal communication using speech is a unique characteristic of modern humans and its origin during human evolution remains obscure.
  Resolving the timescale of south-central African palaeoenvironments and their impact on human behaviour and evolution
  Dr K Penkman, Prof L Barham, Dr T S White
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Timing is everything. accurate dating of the geological record is essential to understand our planet’s history, but beyond the limit of radiocarbon dating (~50,000 years) material becomes difficult to date.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  PhD Scholarship Opportunities at The School of Anthropology and Conservation
 The School of Anthropology and Conservation (SAC) at the University of Kent invites applications from outstanding candidates for our range of competitive PhD scholarship opportunities.
  Archaeology PhD
The University of Sheffield. The University is rated 69th in the 2014 QS World University Rankings and is in the top ten UK research-intensive universities (latest Research Assessment Exercise).
  Evolution of Nonverbal Communication: Music and the Voice
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Linguistic evolution is a prime topic for the IMPRS, but the human voice can also be used for communicating nonverbal social signals, by spontaneously using prosody and intonation.
