Population genetic engineering: Innovative approaches to control vector-borne diseases

Fully funded studentship available for entry in October 2024. This 4-year PhD studentship to be undertaken at Imperial College London provides inter-disciplinary training at the intersection of population genetics, evolution, and synthetic biology, with a focus on genetic engineering. Read more

Starlings as vectors and reservoirs of disease

Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are a widespread avian species found in close association with human developments and agriculture. In the UK, the majority of starlings are resident all year round and their breeding season takes place from March to April. Read more

PhD Studentship in Statistical Physics of Molecular Evolution (3.5 years)

A 3.5 year PhD position is available from October 2024 to work under the supervision of Kabir Husain. This is an exciting opportunity to join an interdisciplinary research group that uses tools from theoretical physics to analyse, predict, and design evolutionary fates in biology. Read more

Harnessing the genetics of DNA methylation to understand context-specific gene regulation in disease

Project Background. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations with health outcomes. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through a regulatory mechanism. Read more

Genomic analyses of inbreeding and inbreeding depression in meerkats

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Cooperatively-breeding species living in family groups may have high potential for inbreeding, or mating between relatives. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Towards Accurate Disease Surveillance: Deep Learning-Assisted Simulation of Bacterial Genomes

Public health surveillance programmes routinely collect vast amounts of pathogen genomics data each year. A pressing issue is how to best utilise this information for effective disease monitoring and management. Read more

Understanding individual radiation risks

  Research Group: The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research
Radiation represents both a key tool in the treatment of cancer, where it is used to kill tumours, and an environmental hazard where exposure can lead to a number of negative health consequences. . Read more

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more
