Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

We have 41 Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

Funded PhD - How do animals stay vigilant during sleep?

Sleep is vital for health and cognition yet is usually associated with unconsciousness meaning individuals are vulnerable to dangers in their environment and are unable to capitalize on resources should they become available (e.g food or a mate). Read more

Fully-funded Cancer Research UK project: Understanding cancer evolution in hematopoietic stem cells

Lead supervisor: Prof David Kent. Co-supervisor: Dr William Grey. BACKGROUND. Recent advances in the tools to understand normal and malignant blood stem cells at the single cell level have prompted a major change in how we understand cancer evolution. Read more

The impact of diet on fertility: A Nutritional Geometry approach

Despite the essential role food plays in our lives, we have little understanding of how different nutrients work together to impact health and well-being, or the reasons animals, including humans, choose certain combinations of food. Read more

Computational modelling to understand the key drivers of placental evolution

Supervisory Team. Bram Sengers (SoE), Rohan Lewis (Medicine). Project description. This project will use computational modelling in combination with 3D multiscale multimodal imaging to improve our understanding of placental evolution, in close collaboration between Engineering and Medicine.

Endosymbionts as an overlooked threat for insect reintroductions

Background. Species reintroduction - or augmentation - into restored habitat will be increasingly used to combat biodiversity loss in a rapidly changing world, and used for a wider range of taxa, including invertebrates. Read more

Detecting Schistosoma in Bornean Water Buffalo and implications of environmental variables for zoonotic transmission in the context of climate change

This project will investigate Schistosomiasis in Bornean buffaloes using novel cell free DNA approaches and will determine the presence of Schistosoma in water bodies associated to buffalo farming. Across Southeast Asia, over 200 million people are at risk of Schistosoma infection with up to 200,000 dying of the disease yearly.

Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more
