  Learning from the past to predict and reduce the risk of infectious disease pandemics
  Dr F Perez-Reche, Prof N Strachan
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organisation reports that infectious diseases cause 63% of childhood deaths and 48% of premature deaths. There is the ongoing risk of epidemics and pandemics that can cause widespread morbidity and mortality (Spanish flu, ebola, SARS, E.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Joint Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics of Dispersal and Female Multiple Mating: Empirical Test
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of native marine organisms as well as potentially aiding the spread of non-native invasive species.
  Evolution of sex chromosomes in reptiles
  Dr M Rovatsos
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Project description. The aim of the project is to examine the evolution of sex chromosomes and their homology based on gene content in selected lineages of reptiles, a specie-rich group, involving lineages with either XX/XY, ZZ/ZW or temperature-dependent sex determination.
  EMBLA Project - The regulation of phase transition by alternative splicing
  Dr R Weatheritt
Applications accepted all year round
More than 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, the process by which multiple, distinct transcript and protein variants are expressed from a single gene.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines
