  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round
Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  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 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.
  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.
  New bioinformatics and statistical methods for the analysis and visualisation of FMDV sequences
  Dr P Ribeca, Dr J Prada, Dr D Horton
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this project, applicants are required to hold an undergraduate degree in either Bioinformatics, Biological Sciences, Computer Sciences, Statistics or related subject with at least a 2:1 or equivalent.
  Holey hypervolumes! The multivariate geometry of adaptive radiation.
  Dr A MacColl, Dr S Preston
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We seek a maths, physics or engineering graduate with an interest in biology, or a biologist with good mathematical skills, for an exciting, international, interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD to investigate multidimensional variation in the shape (phenotype) of fish, and the ecological characteristics of the environments they inhabit.
