New methods for detecting and quantifying genetic adaptation

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Understanding how populations adapt to their environment is a major focus of evolution research. Falling sequencing costs means genome data is more abundant than ever, but we still lack efficient methods for using it to infer and quantify the effects of natural selection. Read more

Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more

ACCE DTP fully funded studentship - The form, function and vulnerability of urban trees under future climate change

This PhD project will use a state-of-the-art instrumented tree sensor network (the Urban Tree Observatory) coupled with leaf level photosynthesis and reflectance spectroscopy measurements to improve our understanding of the structure, function and health of the urban treescape in Sheffield, UK.

The effects of stressful environments on ageing in burying beetles

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Senescence is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Ageing can be environmentally plastic, and various evolutionary and physiological arguments have been made to suggest that environments that are more harsh should cause faster rates of ageing.

Predicting the next pandemic: drivers of the emergence of RNA viruses

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
This project is about identifying candidates for Disease X, the next pandemic pathogen. The Woolhouse and Pedersen labs are taking an ecological and evolutionary approach to research on this hugely topical problem. Read more
