  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.
  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.
  PhD position in evolutionary biology, social supergene maintenance, University of Lausanne
  Prof M Chapuisat (-Delèze)
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A Ph.D. position in evolutionary biology is available in the group of Prof. Michel Chapuisat at the Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, 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.
  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 Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Prof 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 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.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Dissecting mechanisms of mRNA translational control by specialised ribosomes
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J Aspden, Dr J Fontana
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The average cell contains ~10 million ribosomes, comprised of ~80 ribosomal proteins and 4 rRNAs. Until recently it was thought that all ribosomes were the same.
