  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.
  The tangled bank of sexual selection: how the different processes of sexual selection shape evolution in tropical bugs
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project will explore how different processes of sexual selection interact to shape evolution in species of tropical true bug.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Runaway sexual selection- catching the genes.
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Sexual selection has generated an incredible amount of biodiversity. The idea that exaggerated male traits and female choice for those traits become associated to produce runaway sexual selection is widely accepted.
  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: 6 January 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: 11 January 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.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Sexual selection, mating systems and speciation: testing a novel hypothesis using genomic data
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  *IAPETUS* Selection and genetics of life history in a wild mammal population
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how individuals allocate reproductive effort through their lives is fundamental to understanding the process of evolutionary adaptation, and has major implications for understanding other key processes such as population regulation and the evolution of senescence [1,2].
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 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.
  *IAPETUS* Gene expression and sexual selection in sex role reversed flies
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Empid flies (commonly known as dance flies) are exceptional in displaying elaborate sexually selected morphologies and behaviours in females.
