  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  Evolving eusociality: How do queens control reproduction in their subordinate workers?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of eusociality represents one of the major and most successful life history transitions in animal evolution. The defining feature of eusocial societies is the reproductive division of labour, where the majority of females give up their reproduction to support the reproduction of the dominant female.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  The genomic basis of chiral variation and speciation in mirror-image snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr A MacColl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While our bodies are bilaterally symmetric on the outside, the internal organs exhibit consistent, directional asymmetries in their position or anatomy, such that left/right positional errors are an important class of human birth defect, and in later life, numerous diseases affect seemingly symmetric organs in a lateralised fashion.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
