  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  QUADRAT DTP: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
  Adapting to extreme environments: Hybridisation and the evolution of contemporary heavy metal tolerance
  Dr A. Papadopulos, Dr S Creer
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Microbial interactions in unique chemosynthetic ecosystems –an integrated ‘Omic approach
  Dr D Kumaresan, Prof J Mcgrath, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Despite the lack of photosynthetically-fixed carbon, the Movile Cave ecosystem hosts a diverse range of invertebrates.
  The extinction of the sexier? A global investigation of the role of sexual selection in modern amphibian declines
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr H Kunc
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Biodiversity is undergoing alarming declines worldwide. Modern species extinctions are predominantly attributed to environmental factors, mostly climate change and habitat destruction.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Investigating the contribution of rare genetic variants to depression
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Knott, Dr P Navarro, Prof C Haley
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are revealing the role of common genetic variants in the control of diseases and underlying traits.
  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.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Distribution, demography and disease status of cryptic marine mammals: Combining marine strandings with genomic data to inform conservation management
  Dr R Ogden, Dr A Brownlow, Dr E Humble
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cetaceans are a key component of marine ecosystems and can provide powerful insights into ocean health and environmental change (Silber et al., 2017).
