  EASTBIO Evolutionary consequences of mutation rate variation in bacteria
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr H Alexander, Dr M El Karoui
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the ultimate source of new genetic variation, mutations fuel evolutionary change. Mutation rate is thus a key parameter determining how fast populations adapt to new environments, or even whether they survive a severe environmental challenge, such as antibiotic treatment in the case of bacteria.

  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Evolution of social genes across landscapes
  Prof J Wolf
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  The evolutionary ecology of disease transmission: how will vector control programmes change parasite life histories?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Prof S Reece
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasites live in inside the bodies of others, with whom they are engaged in a life-and-death struggle.
  Evolutionary genetics of antibiotic resistance
  Dr J Engelstaedter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Engelstaedter lab at The University of Queensland (Brisbane, Australia) invites applications for a PhD position in microbial evolution.
  PhD position in gut microbiota research/microbial evolutionary genomics
  Prof P Engel
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on social bees to address current questions about the evolution, function, and ecology of specialized gut microbial communities.
  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
  Genomics, bioinformatics and evolution of inherited chromosomal integrated human herpesvirus 6.
  Dr A Aswad, Prof B Kaufer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications for a 3-4 year PhD student in the area of bioinformatics and evolutionary genomics of endogenous Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6).
  Ecological drivers of the evolution of symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Dr A Beckerman, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Symbiosis is common across the tree of life and has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
