human evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 53 human evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

The comparative anatomy and evolution of the mammalian larynx

  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Jacob Dunn. Theme. Evolution, Anatomy, Geometric Morphometrics, Communication, Language. Read more

Evolution of virulence in the human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans in response to extreme weather events

Cryptococcus neoformans is an environmental basidiomycete yeast and opportunistic pathogen of humans. In immunocompromise, infection following lung inoculation by inhalation cannot be contained and disseminates to brain causing cryptococcal meningitis. Read more

Modelling the ecology and evolution of microbial communities

From the human gut to deep-sea sediments, microbial communities – or microbiomes – colonize virtually every habitat on earth. These microbiomes are central to ecosystem functioning and to host health, and therefore it is essential that we understand how and why they change over time. Read more

Predicting the Evolution of Influenza and SARS-CoV-2 Viruses

Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza and SARS-CoV-2 viruses. Read more

How do interactions in the microbiome shape the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens?

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria poses a fundamental threat to human health. It is estimated that antibiotic resistant infections are already directly responsible for at least one million deaths per annum and this number is predicted to rise dramatically by 2050. Read more

Constraints and causes of brain evolution in birds

Birds differ from their non-avian dinosaur relatives in many respects. One key feature that evolved as birds acquired powered flight and began to diversify is a relatively large brain. Read more

Data-driven probabilistic modelling of clonal dynamics in human tissues and cancers

Cancer is responsible for one in eight deaths, worldwide. Cancer initiation and development is driven by the accumulation of genetic mutations within cells that maintain and regenerate human tissues. Read more

Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process. Read more

Social relationships and the evolution of complex cognition

  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Claudia Wascher. Theme. Cognitive abilities, Social relationships. Read more

In silico modelling of endocannabinoid evolution

In the brain, the endocannabinoid (eCB) system maintains adequate neurotransmission (Lu and Mackie 2016). Indeed, the eCB system provides a negative feedback mechanism, preventing over-activation of synaptic transmission. Read more

Computational modelling to understand the key drivers of placental evolution

Supervisory Team. Bram Sengers (SoE), Rohan Lewis (Medicine). Project description. This project will use computational modelling in combination with 3D multiscale multimodal imaging to improve our understanding of placental evolution, in close collaboration between Engineering and Medicine.
