  Son preference and sex selection: Diffusion processes and re-evaluation of policies in India.
  Dr S Dubuc
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Understanding how mutability facilitates survival of alternating selection and bottlenecks by the major food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Bacterial pathogens are subject to two strong pressures during spread within and transmission between hosts.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  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
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.
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  The genomics of haplo-diploid pollinators
  Dr R Hammond, Dr E Mallon
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Eighty four percent of the crops cultivated in Europe and 70% of crops worldwide are dependent on pollination by insects, particularly the Hymenoptera – the bees, ants and wasps.
  Evolution Inspired Development of Multi-Level Selection Genetic Algorithm for General Applications
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr A Sobey, Dr T Ezard
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Genetic algorithms are used in a range of diverse applications including. spacecraft antenna design, AI in computer games, determining which genes cause illness and portfolio selection for financial investments.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  The blind watch breaker: mutation and selection at regulatory sites in cancer
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr M Taylor, Dr C Semple
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This is one of several projects available on an MRC funded 4-year multi-disciplinary PhD programme in Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease at the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
