  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.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  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.
