quantitative genetics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 24 quantitative genetics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD Studentship in quantitative genetics of neurodevelopment

The student will have the opportunity to work on a project analysing data from large-scale longitudinal and developmental cohorts with a focus on infant and child phenotypes. 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

The evolutionary basis of feeding preferences: A Geometric Framework approach

Despite the essential role food plays in our lives, we have little understanding of how different nutrients work together to impact functioning, or the reasons individuals choose certain combinations of food. Read more

PhD in Quantitative Biology of Development and Aging

A PhD position in Quantitative Biology are available in the group of Prof. Benjamin Towbin at the Institute of Cell Biology (ICB), University of Bern (http://www.towbinlab.org). 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

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

Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations for traits and diseases. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions (outside genes), and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through modulating regulatory mechanism. Read more

Effects of Phenotypic Plasticity and/or Extreme Events on Ecological Dynamics

PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Effects of Phenotypic Plasticity and/or Extreme Events on Ecological Dynamics. The HartLab at the University of Queensland focuses on understanding why population sizes of plants and animals rise and fall. Read more

Eliminating Harmful Cells to Maintain Homeostatis and Prevent Tumorigenesis

Hamaratoglu Lab studies cell-cell signalling in development, homeostasis and tumourigenesis. We take advantage of outstanding genetic tools in Drosophila, and use larval imaginal discs as model epithelial organs. Read more

Self-funded PhD- Exploring changes in well-being across key life transitions

About the Project. We conduct research on the causes and consequences of positive well-being across the life course. Positive well-being includes feelings of happiness, satisfaction with one’s life, and having meaning and purpose. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Exploring changes in well-being across key life transitions

We conduct research on the causes and consequences of positive well-being across the life course. Positive well-being includes feelings of happiness, satisfaction with one’s life, and having meaning and purpose. Read more

Early life factors in the development of Juvenile idiopathic arthritis

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is an autoimmune inflammatory arthritis with disease onset before the age of 16. Children and young people with this condition develop painful swollen joints and untreated it can lead to long term disability. It may also be associated with comorbid conditions such as uveitis.
