  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using markers of gene evolutionary age to identify function within gene regulatory networks related to embryo implantation
  Prof D Brison, Dr A Stevens, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof M Westwood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful implantation relies upon synchrony between a competent blastocyst and receptive endometrium. Molecular networks mediating these events at implantation are not well understood in humans.
