  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.
  Host-parasite coevolution and the role of sex and inbreeding(Ref IAP2-18-61)
  Dr S Auld, Dr B Mable
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
One of the fundamental questions in evolutionary biology is.
  Evolutionary consequences of sexual mode switches on gene expression
  Dr R Hammond, Dr E Mallon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The evolution of separate sexes - males and females (dioecy) – sets in train evolutionary conflicts between those genes that benefit females and those that benefit males.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Modelling Sex Dependent Differences in Human Liver Disease using Stem Cell Derived Models and Organ on a Chip Devices
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
  Dr D Hay, Prof P Saunders
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, which include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
  Gender and Sex(uality): Legal Perspectives on Transformation and Change (Advert Reference: RDF19/BL/LAW/ASHFORD)
  Prof C Ashford
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Applications are invited for a project addressing the theme of transformation and change in the area of gender, sexuality and law.
  SCENARIO: When (plant) life gets in the way: Investigating how vegetation attenuates sex pheromone odour plumes and communication between conspecifics
  Dr R Girling, Prof A Robins, Prof R Cardé
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary studentship will investigate how the plume dynamics of sex pheromone signals released by moths are attenuated by vegetation and the effects that this has on moth mate searching and ecology.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  How are multiple adaptive genes affected by an organisms’ frequency of sex?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield, Dr J Hadfield
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Reduced costs of genome sequencing have seen an expansion in the amount of genetic data available from various species, from which researchers are learning more about the crucial evolutionary process of adaptation.
  The ecology of a sex-ratio distorting meiotic driver
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aim. to understand how the behaviour, genetics, and ecology of a fly is affected by a selfish X chromosome. Background. Gene drive systems are selfish genes that manipulate reproduction to enhance their transmission, at a cost to the rest of the genome.
  Sexual conflict in moths, NERC GW4+ DTP, PhD in Biosciences studentship
  Dr N Wedell, Prof D Hosken
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
