  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  Understanding the role of bacterial endosymbionts in a multi-player symbiotic network.
  Prof Thomas Richards, Prof S West
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endosymbiosis is an important evolutionary process which has led to the formation of organelles such as mitochondria and plastids.
  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEAM Postgraduate Research Scholarship (SEBE)

Funding Type

PhD Type

 Deakin University recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders remain under-represented in Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Maths (STEAM) – including our Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) cohort and in our academic staff.
  Women in STEAM Postgraduate Research Scholarship (SEBE)

Funding Type

PhD Type

 Deakin University recognises that women remain under-represented in Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Maths (STEAM) – including our Higher Degrees by Research (HDR) cohort and in our academic staff.
  Understanding interplay between genetic intra-tumour heterogeneity and the local tumour microenvironment
  Dr E Sahai
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Erik Sahai’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Intra-tumour heterogeneity represents a major challenge in the treatment of cancers.
  Predicting the future: the paradox of transgenerational non-genetic inheritance in evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman, Dr S Immler
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Parental environments can affect offspring performance over many generations.
  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social animals? (BOURKEUBIO20ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  Resistance Evolution in Response to Emerging Wildlife Disease. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr B Tschirren
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barbara Tschirren, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology and Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Evolution of unique cranial morphology and function in lagomorphs: a combined effect of locomotion and mastication?
  Dr A Sharp, Dr N Jeffery, Dr P Cox
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammals have evolved diverse craniofacial morphology to adapt to a wide range of ecological niches. However, the factors driving this evolution of different morphologies and functions, and the mechanisms of evolutionary change are not fully understood.
  Moving about a new axis: The role of the backbone in major adaptive radiations of terrestrial vertebrates
  Dr KT Bates, Dr K Jones, Dr P Cox, Dr J Gardiner
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary shifts in locomotion underpin major ecological transitions in vertebrates. Our understanding of how key innovations in the locomotor system drive taxonomic and ecological diversity during evolutionary transitions is largely based on the limbs.
