Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  Climate change and the development of built asset adaptation strategies

  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Developing GWAS approaches to decipher the drivers of Bordetella pertussis adaptation during re-emergence
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome rearrangement, the reordering of genes along the chromosome, is widespread among bacteria. It is thought to affect bacterial phenotype (behaviour) and contribute to their evolution and adaptation.
  Adapting to extreme environments: Hybridisation and the evolution of contemporary heavy metal tolerance
  Dr A. Papadopulos, Dr S Creer
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Resistance isn’t futile: Dissecting adaptation and antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic fungi
  Dr D Childers, Prof C Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What will you investigate?. We have only four major classes of antifungals to treat life-threatening fungal infections, which even with treatment will claim over 1 million lives this year.
  Neural adaptation to ocular misalignment; topographic maps associated with anomalous retinal correspondence
  Prof P McGraw, Assoc Prof D Schluppeck
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anomalous retinal correspondence (ARC) is a neural adaptation to ocular misalignment (strabismus) in which non-corresponding retinal points are linked in the visual brain to support binocular fusion.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying the effects of climate change on Infrastructure Networks (OP20217)
  Dr S Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest generation of convection permitting climate models to answer the question “are we now at the stage where climate models can be used to ask multifaceted questions about how our societies may be directly affected by a changed climate?”.
