  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  Ecological drivers of the evolution of symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Dr A Beckerman, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Symbiosis is common across the tree of life and has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Assessing the diversity, drivers & importance of Megaira, intracellular symbiont of aquatic eukaryotes
  Prof G Hurst, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biology, ecology and evolution of eukaryotes is in part a product of their symbiotic interactions with microbes. Intracellular microbes, retained during cell division and reproduction, are particularly interesting, as they are selected to maintain and nurture their hosts.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  PhD position in gut microbiota research/microbial evolutionary genomics
  Prof P Engel
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on social bees to address current questions about the evolution, function, and ecology of specialized gut microbial communities.
  Taphonomy of the exceptionally-preserved Cambrian Chengjiang biota, Yunnan Province, China: how fossilization affects ecological and evolutionary interpretations
  Prof S E Gabbott, Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Geol Gabbott 2020. The Early Cambrian Chengjiang biota in Yunnan Province, China preserves the fossilized remains of a diverse and ecologically complex early Cambrian marine ecosystem.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
  The aphid microbiome: ecological and evolutionary dynamics of multispecies interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms face a multitude of environmental threats and have to. adapt to overcome these challenges. Many insects get help from an.
