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

(BBSRC DTP) The evolution of odorant receptors in the domestication of Aedes mosquitoes: the link to zoonotic disease emergence

Manmade environmental change has triggered adaptation to domestic habitats in several pest species, including mosquitoes. As well as being of fundamental biological interest, the evolutionary process of domestication also results in the transmission of formerly zoonotic diseases of wildlife to livestock and humans. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Single-cell measurements of mutation dynamics across bacterial DNA

Genetic mutations are the raw material of evolution, driving evolutionary innovations. Mutation rate is thus a key factor determining how organisms adapt to new environments and whether they survive a severe environmental challenge, such as antibiotic treatment in the case of bacteria. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Dynamics of neurogenesis during spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have poor capacity to repair or regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) MicroRNA buffering of gene expression during development

The timing, location, and amount of protein made from every gene is critical for all processes in the cell. The production of proteins from genes (gene expression) is therefore very carefully controlled in every cell. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) The Eco-mechanics of Mammalian Combat

Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s evocative phrase ‘Nature, red in tooth and claw’ has often been associated with the evolutionary process (Dawkins 1976) and intra-specific conflict is a key aspect for understanding the mechanisms of natural and sexual selection (Smith and Price 1973). Read more

Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping organic and inorganic chemistry with ageing in bone tissue

Bone plays vital roles in the body. Structurally, through supporting body movement and protection of internal organs, and chemically, acting as a reservoir of minerals, blood cell production and molecules for endocrine regulation. Read more
