Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

We have 7 Evolution PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Manchester

Understanding the evolution of gene regulatory networks through biophysical modelling and machine learning

The ability to coordinate the expression of genes within a cell is at the heart of life. When and how much of a specific gene is turned into a protein is essential for organisms to respond to their environment and to manage resources. Read more

Modelling the ecology and evolution of microbial communities

From the human gut to deep-sea sediments, microbial communities – or microbiomes – colonize virtually every habitat on earth. These microbiomes are central to ecosystem functioning and to host health, and therefore it is essential that we understand how and why they change over time. Read more

Evolution of Mammalian Locomotion

A PhD opportunity is available in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones at the University of Manchester. The lab studies the evolution of mammalian locomotion drawing from methods in comparative anatomy, biomechanics, paleobiology, and evolutionary modelling. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Genetic and acoustic diversity in an invasive parrot

The ring-necked parakeet Psittacula krameri is one of the world’s most successfully introduced species. Native to the Indian sub-continent and sub-Saharan Africa, this species is the UK’s only naturalised parrot, and populations are continuing to increase rapidly across Europe. Read more
