  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.

  Structure/Function studies of bacterial motility and secretion machines
  Prof S Lea
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

All bacteria need to interact with their environment to survive, but pathogens have particular demands to do this in an efficient way.
  The maintenance of virulence and antimicrobial resistance in Shigella
  Prof C Tang
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
  Understanding the role of bacterial endosymbionts in a multi-player symbiotic network.
  Prof Thomas Richards, Prof S West
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

Endosymbiosis is an important evolutionary process which has led to the formation of organelles such as mitochondria and plastids.
  Can genetics-led immunologic investigation identify novel common regulators shared across immune-mediated inflammatory diseases? #NDORMS-2020/2
  Dr L Chen, Prof P Bowness
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

Liye Chen. https://www.ndorms.ox.ac.uk/team/liye-chen. Paul Bowness. https://www.ndorms.ox.ac.uk/team/paul-bowness. Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs) are a group of incurable diseases that share inflammatory pathways and cause substantial personal and socioeconomic burdens.
  Exploring Parkinson’s related gene function in hiPS-macrophages and microglia
  Prof W S James, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The macrophage is an evolutionarily ancient sentinel of the health of all of the body’s tissues. clearing away dead cells and debris; as brain-resident microglia, remodelling defunct neuronal connections; nurturing tissue stem cells; detecting and responding to pathogens.
  Division of labour
  Prof S West
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Division of labour is when cooperating individuals specialise to perform different tasks. Division occurs across the tree of life, from bacteria to birds, and represents an extreme form of cooperation, which is hard to explain from an evolutionary perspective.
