  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
  Bioinformatics: investigating the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Prof M Aranda, Prof A Nagarajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong bioinformatics background to pursue Ph.D. Our group applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the molecular basis of symbiosis and adaptation in corals and related cnidarian model organisms.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  SWBio DTP PhD project - Extremophilic enzymes: investigating structural adaptation through rapid physics-based geometric simulation
  Prof A Walker
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  EASTBIO: Temporal Adaptation to Antifungal Treatment in Pathogenic Fungi
  Dr D Childers, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Delma Childers (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/delma.childers. Dr Edward Wallace (University of Edinburgh).
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
  Landscape Genomics of Damselflies in Scotland and Indonesia
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr M N Nangoy, Dr R D Dudaniec
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Odonates (damselflies and dragonflies) are charismatic insects which exhibit a diversity of colour forms and adaptations to ecological conditions.
  Deciphering the regulation of fission yeast phenotypic heterogeneity by external conditions
  Research Group: Quantitative Gene Expression
  Dr S Marguerat
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phenotypic cell-to-cell variability is a fundamental determinant of microbial fitness that contributes to stress adaptation and drug resistance.
  (BBSRC DTP) The physiology and energetics of locomotion in turtles: linking performance from the organismal to the cellular level
  Dr J Codd, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turtles have the most distinctive body plans of vertebrates (1). Turtles appear in the fossil record over 220 million years ago. Turtles are unique among vertebrates in that their whole body is enclosed within a rigid bony shell, composed of the carapace and plastron, that protects from predators.
