  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  *EASTBIO* What promotes rapid convergent adaptation under extreme selection? A population genomics approach in silent Hawaiian crickets
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. PROJECT GOALS. Whether and how organisms adapt to extreme environmental selection pressures often determines population and species fates.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Epigenetic Interplay: How Maternal and Paternal Effects Interact in Australian Crickets. PhD in Biosciences (SWBio DTP)
  Dr B Kuijper
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Bram Kuijper, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  The evolution of mimicry in a changing world: how shifting bumblebee communities affect selection on a colour-polymorphic hoverfly
  Dr T Reader, Dr F Gilbert
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex species interactions make the impacts of global environmental change difficult to foresee.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.
  EASTBIO Developing Ovine Immune ‘Omics for sheep genomic improvement
  Dr E Clark, Dr M Coffey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. The aim of this project is to use an ‘omics approach to identify genetic variants that can potentially be used in development of a next generation of productive sheep breeds or crossbreeds resilient to the on-going effects of changing disease pressures.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Synthetic chromosomes to understand genome instability
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof N Gilbert, Prof A Marston
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Genomic instability in cancer has been known for many years; the advent of genomic analyses in the late 1990’s enabled these changes to be characterized in detail.
  Using machine learning to identify aggregation resistant biopharmaceuticals
  Dr D Brockwell, Prof D R Westhead, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The UK is a major stakeholder in biopharmaceutical development and production, a sector that had sales of $228 billion in 2016.
  PhD-position in host-pathogen interactions
  Prof D Ebert
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studies in diverse biological systems have led us to believe that host–parasite coevolution is responsible for the extraordinary genetic diversity seen in some genomic regions, such as MHC genes in jawed vertebrates and R-genes in plants.
