  QUADRAT DTP: The role of sexual selection in facilitating rapid adaptation to climate change
  Dr N Pilakouta, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is arguably the most significant threat to biodiversity in the 21st century. Animal populations are experiencing a period of unprecedented environmental change, leading to higher extinction rates.
  EASTBIO: Temporal Adaptation to Antifungal Treatment in Pathogenic Fungi
  Dr D Childers, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Delma Childers (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/delma.childers. Dr Edward Wallace (University of Edinburgh).
  Adaptation of 3 GHz cavity design of linear accelerators for proton radiotherapy
  Dr R Apsimon, Dr H Owen, Dr G Burt
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the development of high-gradient radiofrequency linear accelerators proton therapy.
  Insect adaptation to Antarctica: past and future
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice – thus wiping out all terrestrial life.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Molecular, biochemical and developmental analysis of root traits for low P adaptation in foxtail millet.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for plant growth and cannot be replaced by any other element. It is the second most limiting nutrient after N.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Role of cytidine deaminase in (epi)genetic adaptation of the plant immune system.
  Prof J Ton, Dr L Smith, Dr J Stassen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As sessile organisms, plants are masters in adapting to environmental stresses. Recent work from the Ton lab has shown that plants employ epigenetic mechanisms to prime their immune system long-term against potential pests and diseases.
  Metabolomic studies of E. coli adaptation from anaerobic to aerobic growth
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Escherichia coli is a commensal organism that lives in the human gut. Occasionally it gives rise to food poisoning incidents, but mainly it is important for digestion and uptake of nutrients.
  Graduate Position (Masters or PhD) in Urban Resilience and Climate Change Adaptation
  Prof D Bristow
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities are where most people on Earth call home, yet cities face and cause many challenges. We are looking for someone that is passionate about solving problems in urban areas.
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
