  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
  Bioinformatic studies of mobile DNAs in vertebrates
  Prof J F Y Brookfield, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round
44% of the human genome, and similar proportions in other vertebrate species, consists of mobile DNAs or their inactive descendants.
  The genetic basis of recent loss of self-incompatibility in North American Arabidopsis lyrata
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr A Tedder, Dr K Poterlowicz
Applications accepted all year round
The shift to self-pollination (or selfing) is one of the most prevalent evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Charles Darwin (1876) studied selfing using extensive ecological experiments.
  Harnessing large-scale genomic sequencing data to understand smoking behaviour
  Dr C Batini
Applications accepted all year round
In 2018 it has been announced that both whole exome sequences and whole genome sequences will be analysed in the 500K individuals in UK Biobank over the next two to five years.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Using genetics to explore patterns of change in weight and height during key life course periods on subsequent health outcomes
  Prof D Lawlor, Prof K Tilling, Dr N Warrington
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
3/4-year PhD starting in October 2019. Closing date. 5pm, 1st February 2019. We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity for candidates interested in using innovative statistical methods to investigate the causal role of pubertal growth on health outcomes in adulthood.
