Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
The University of Liverpool Management School's Centre for Entrepreneurship is inviting applications from prospective PhD candidates with an outstanding academic achievement and research potential for a number of Studentships in the 2019/20 academic year.
Artificial evolutionary systems, be they simulated or grounded in physical robots, provide a novel and cutting-edge way to investigate the emergence and evolution of adaptive and intelligent behaviours.

Understanding evolutionary processes requires an interplay between wet-lab experiment and computational simulation . This project will use model systems for both to explore the interplay of evolutionary processes (primarily mutation) and the spatial environment.
