  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project - Evolution and biodiversity conservation in Africa: teaching, training and outreach
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  Identifying the evolutionary origins of the MADS-box floral quartet mechanism in seedless vascular plants
  Dr A.R.G Plackett, Dr J C Coates
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite its commonplace occurrence in today’s environment, the reproduction of plants via flowers and seeds is a recent evolutionary innovation arising from an ancestral seedless reproductive system similar to that still found in a subset of today’s plants (e.g.
  Evolutionary acceleration in the Anthropocene
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Prof C Thomas
Application Deadline: 29 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to investigate whether rates of evolution, hybridisation and speciation have been accelerating during the Anthropocene.
  Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use
  Prof J A Hawkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project encompasses 1. evolutionary aspects of medicinal plant use and 2. authentication. You will collect DNA sequence data at the level of a whole flora and at the level of a genus.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species.
  QUADRAT DTP: Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  “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.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
  Dr M Bosch, Dr L J McGuffin, Prof G J Stephens
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Most of our food is a product of plant reproduction with fertility and seed set critical for crop yield and thus food security.
  Structure, function and evolution of plant telomere components
  Prof J Fajkus, Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are terminal, but nevertheless integral parts of chromosomes, and as such they are also formed and function as supramolecular nucleoprotein (chromatin) structures.
