  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 Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., covid-19, Ebola, pandemic influenza, etc.).
  Understanding non-genetic inheritance in Daphnia magna with Raman spectroscopic imaging and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics
  Dr H Muhamad Ali, Dr S J Plaistow, Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inheritance is an integral part of the evolutionary process. We all know that offspring inherit genes from their parents. But it is now increasingly recognised that parents also transmit ’non-genetic’ factors that interact with genes to shape offspring development.
  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
