  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Evolutionary genetics of transposable element invasions
  Dr A Betancourt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal and plant genomes are riddled with parasitic DNA. This DNA comes from transposable elements, ‘jumping’ genes that can spread not only from parent to offspring, but which also make new copies of themselves within a host.
  PhD in population genetics
  Dr K Zeng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research combines theoretical development and empirical data analysis. In particular, we are interested in developing new methods for analyzing DNA sequence data, and applying them to real datasets.
  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  The genetics/genomics of adaptive evolutionary change
  Dr N Nadeau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The basic process of evolution by natural selection involves genetic changes that confer an advantage in survival or reproduction.
  Uncovering 3D genome architecture in annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  PhD in evolutionary genetics
  Prof J Slate
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group integrates genomics approaches and tools with ecological data collected from long-term studies of vertebrates. We aim to understand how genetic variation is maintained and how evolutionary change occurs.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  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.
  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
