  The evolution and genetics of sexual dimorphism
  Dr A Wright, Prof J Slate, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Males and females of the same species are often subject to very different selection pressures and can show major differences in morphology, behaviour and life history.
  How do genomes respond to sexual system transitions?
  Dr A Gomez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How genomes respond to conflicting evolutionary forces is a crucial and challenging question in evolutionary biology. This challenge can now be tackled given the huge improvements in genome sequencing technologies and computing power, allowing the analysis of multiple complete genomes.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Genomic analysis of the impact of sexual recombination on the segregation of virulence genes in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr L Morrison, Dr A MacLeod, Dr J Prendergast
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. African trypanosomes are vector-borne protozoa that cause serious human and animal disease across sub-Saharan Africa.
  Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield, Dr M Vallejo-Marin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  *EASTBIO* Bayesian approach to model evolutionary trajectories in experimental evolution
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr C Kosiol, Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. When populations adapt to new environments (e.g., new temperatures or new diets) this often leaves signatures in the genome.
  Scholarships available for SECReT: The International Training Centre for Security and Crime Related Research Degrees

Funding Type

PhD Type

UCL SECReT is the international centre for training in security and crime related research degrees, the first centre of its kind in Europe.
  Neural basis underlying mating decisions in fruit flies
  Dr C Rezaval
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mate choice is an essential behavioural process with profound consequences in evolution. How do animals choose with whom to mate? How do they evaluate the features of a potential mate to maximise their reproductive success?.
  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.
