  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Sexual Selection and Sexual Conflict in Hermaphrodites
  Dr L Scharer
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), is available in the Schärer Group (http://evolution.unibas.ch/scharer/) at the Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Switzerland.
  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.
  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.
  Conservation Genomics and Epigenomics of Fragmented and Declining Populations
  Prof L Beheregaray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a bright candidate for one PhD position associated with the project. “The evolutionary potential of fragmented and declining populations”.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Evolutionary game theory and population dynamics
  Dr H Duong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary Game Theory (EGT) [MSP73] has proven to be a powerful and versatile mathematical framework for the modelling and analysis of complex biological (and economical) systems whenever there is frequency dependent selection.
  Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium parvum anthroponosum – a new threat to world health. (TylerKU19SF)
  Dr K Tyler, Prof N Hall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and most infection is caused by either person to person transmitted Cryptosporidium hominis or the presumptively zoonotic C.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Prof P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
