  Son preference and sex selection: Diffusion processes and re-evaluation of policies in India.
  Dr S Dubuc
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amartya Sen’s seminal article ‘More Than 100 Million Women Are Missing’ in 1990, brought the topic of sex-selection against females to global attention and inspired academic work in the field1.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  Disentangling the drivers of life-history evolution in the wild: Artificial selection meets natural selection in a unique avian island population. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr E Postma
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Erik Postma, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology and Conservation, College for Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Optimal Impartial Selection: Seeking to Improve the Upper and Lower Bounds for Selecting Multiple Individuals
  Research Group: Combinatorics
  Dr F Fischer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
  Cancer evolution, drift and microenvironment selection
  Dr C Swanton
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

TRACERx is a 10-year longitudinal study of lung cancer evolution from diagnosis to cure or cancer relapse and death implementing DNA and RNA multi-region deep sequencing data with clinical outcome, imaging and immune microenvironmental analysis using imaging mass cytometry in over 700 patients.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Advancing personalised care: treatment selection and outcome prediction research
  Dr J Delgadillo, Prof M Barkham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Personalized medicine, defined as “the use of marker-assisted diagnosis and targeted therapies” (Ginsburg & McCarthy, 2001), has enhanced health and preventive care for conditions such as cardiovascular problems, cancer and osteoporosis.
  High-throughput discovery of combination therapies and engineering of CRISPR/therapeutic proteins
  Dr A Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab is interested in developing and applying state-of-the-art combinatorial genetics technologies to decipher the mechanisms behind complex diseases, including cancers and neurodegenerative disorders, and discover novel combination therapies.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
