  Evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the early cerapodan dinosaurs
  Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cerapodans are a major group of herbivorous bipedal and quadrupedal ornithischian dinosaurs that dominated the terrestrial herbivorous niche during the Cretaceous.
  Analysis of malware evolution using phylogenetic networks (MOULTONVU19SF)
  Prof V Moulton, Dr O Buckley
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Just as with biological viruses, malware, or malicious software evolves. For example, malware will often be created by combining and evolving existing code, a process that is analogous to recombination in biological viruses.
  Darwin’s Tree in the 21st Century (HUBERKU19SF)
  Dr K Huber
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Understanding how disparate structures such as galaxies, languages, and genomes have evolved has the potential to shed new light into the early universe, human migration, and potentially lethal diseases such as cancer.
  The origin of Antarctic ice shelf fauna, the timing of its emergence and the demographic stability of the fauna over time
  Dr A Glover, Dr J Copley
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. The objective is to study the taxonomy, biodiversity, phylogeography and population genetic patterns of under-ice shelf fauna with a focus on polychaetes.
  The macroevolutionary diversification and elaboration of antlers in deer
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The antlers of members of the deer family have long captivated naturalists around the world. Among evolutionary biologists, antlers have become a textbook example of what is known as positive allometry—a relationship where larger individuals have disproportionately large antlers.
  The ones that got away: diversification and dispersal in the first neopterygians
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Neopterygians are a major vertebrate group of over 30,000 extant taxa comprising two radiations. holosteans, with fewer than 10 living species; and teleosts, with over 30,000 living species.
  Unravelling early teleost relationships: diversification at the dawn of the most successful fish radiation
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
With over 30,000 living species ubiquitous in all aquatic environments, teleost ray-finned fishes represent the largest living vertebrate group.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution of discrete and continuous morphological characters
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Sansom, Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Advances in the acquisition and analysis of genetic sequence data have led to an increasing emphasis and reliance on molecular data to build phylogenies and test models of evolution, yet phenotypic evidence (morphology) remains vital.
  Phylogeography of European ungulates from the last interglacial period and their subsequent evolution
  Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
This study will use next generation sequencing methods to explore the genetic diversity of deer and other ungulates from the Eemian interglacial period, ~120,000 years ago.
  The evolution and diversification of the Caucasian languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The importance of the Caucasus for the study of language contact cannot be underestimated. It is the most linguistically diverse area of Europe, with ample evidence of centuries-long contact both within itself and with neighbouring linguistic areas.
