Showing 1 to 10 of 12
  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.
  (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.
  SCENARIO: Climate and Speciation in the Mediterranean biome
  Dr A Culham, Dr J David, Dr JS Singarayer, Dr C Yesson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Mediterranean basin is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots yet patterns of distribution and diversification of species that are key to maintaining this biodiversity are still poorly understood.
  Antimicrobial resistance and One Health: foodborne carriage of antimicrobial resistance markers (RDF19/HLS/AS/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is among the largest threats to human health, with the emergence of multidrug resistant bacterial infections meaning traditional treatment approaches are being rendered ineffective.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  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.
  Micro-managing the oceans: how parasites modify the role of copepods as ecosystem engineers.
  Dr M van der Giezen, Dr E Santos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use
  Prof J A Hawkins
Applications accepted all year round
This project encompasses 1. evolutionary aspects of medicinal plant use and 2. authentication. You will collect DNA sequence data at the level of a whole flora and at the level of a genus.
  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.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round
During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species.
