We have 16 vertebrate PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Constraints and causes of brain evolution in birds

Birds differ from their non-avian dinosaur relatives in many respects. One key feature that evolved as birds acquired powered flight and began to diversify is a relatively large brain. Read more

Marsupial cancer and viral immunity

Cancer and viral immunity in Tasmanian devils and other marsupials. About the research project. Disease is increasingly a driver of wildlife population declines in Australia. Read more

Artemisinin Derivatives to Fight Malaria

A self-funded PhD position is available in the Fielding and Ismail research groups. We investigate unpaired electron species that play an important role in biological and materials chemistry. Read more

Changing beaver populations in the arctic, what are the effects on nature and people?

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group  (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Helen Wheeler. Theme. Climate change, species distribution. Read more

Gene regulation in cancer metastasis

A PhD project studying gene regulation in cancer metastasis is available in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/research/wardle-group) in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London. Read more

MSc By Research: Understanding the mechanism of an essential nematode gene expression process

The MSc by Research programme at the University of Aberdeen is for students interested in a research-intensive master's degree. It is designed specifically to enhance your skills for a PhD or research career. Read more

The analysis of HIF function in DNA repair and genome stability

DNA damage is a factor that underlies many human diseases. Such damage results in mutations, and if such genetic alterations occur in tumour suppressor or proto-oncogenes it can lead to cancer. Read more

Transcriptome homeostasis in cellular ageing and cancer

Project Summary. We have previously established the oncogenic mechanisms of the transcription factor FOXM1 in perturbation of genome stability (1, 2), epigenome (3, 4) and adult progenitor epithelial stem cell proliferation (5). Read more

Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans. Read more
