  Ecological drivers and consequences of lateral gene transfers in plants
  Dr P A Christin, Prof J D Scholes
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lateral gene transfers (LGT) are widespread in prokaryotes, where they allow the spread of adaptations among distinct species. More recently, LGT have also been reported among multicelullar eukaryotes, such as plants.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  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.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  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.
  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 Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  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 in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety
  Dr G Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology.
