  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.
  The evolution and genetics of sexual dimorphism
  Dr A Wright, Prof J Slate, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Males and females of the same species are often subject to very different selection pressures and can show major differences in morphology, behaviour and life history.
  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.
  The Genomic Basis of Life History in a Natural Population
  Prof T A Burke, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traits that have more influence on an individual’s fitness are known to be under stronger selection and to have lower heritabilities.
  The genomics of natural selection
  Dr K Zeng, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adaptation is the process in which organisms become better suited to the. environment, in order to survive and thrive. Identifying genomic regions involved in this process is key to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation.
  *EASTBIO* Impact of the microbiome on development and health
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
  Biodiversity change in fish communities: integrating taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof A E Magurran
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research, much of it led by the University of St Andrews (1, 4, 8), is showing that the world’s ecosystems are being restructured at rates that exceed the predictions of the best ecological theory we have.
  Impact of environmental stressors on microbiota and health in a marine chordate
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
