  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  Developing GWAS approaches to decipher the drivers of Bordetella pertussis adaptation during re-emergence
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome rearrangement, the reordering of genes along the chromosome, is widespread among bacteria. It is thought to affect bacterial phenotype (behaviour) and contribute to their evolution and adaptation.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  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.
  Combining CRISPR and RNAseq to dissect molecular circuits in a hypoxic tumour microenvironment
  Prof F Buffa, Prof A Harris, Dr V D'Angiolella
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The role of the microenvironment in driving tumour progression is increasingly recognized. Hypoxia is one of the key microenvironmental changes between tumour and normal tissue, and adaptation of cancer cells to this hostile environment contributes to their malignancy and aggressive phenotype.
  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”.
