Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 76 Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Control and inhibition of virus replication

The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specifically 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.

How do environmental cues affect reproduction?

This project is available to self funded candidates only. The School of Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Effects of age on disease defence strategies in ants

Group living offers favourable conditions for the spread of infectious diseases, because high population densities and frequent social contacts facilitate pathogen transmission. Read more

Self-funded PhD- The genomic basis of major evolutionary transitions

Life on Earth has undergone several major evolutionary transitions that dramatically changed its biology. These include exciting innovations such as the emergence of multicellular organisms (animals, plants, fungi), the evolution of terrestrial organisms, or parasitism. Read more

Early life environment changes how organisms age.

This project will help understand why organisms age differently by establishing the effect of early life environments on epigenetic ageing in the model insect, Nasonia vitripennis. Read more

Epigenetic profiling of cereal fungal invaders. (SAUNDERS_J24DTP1)

Wheat blast and rusts are fungal diseases that severely damage cereal production worldwide. During infection, these fungi secrete proteins into wheat plants to reprogramme host plant circuitry, supporting their own growth and development. Read more

Understanding the evolution of gene regulatory networks through biophysical modelling and machine learning

The ability to coordinate the expression of genes within a cell is at the heart of life. When and how much of a specific gene is turned into a protein is essential for organisms to respond to their environment and to manage resources. Read more
