EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

EASTBIO Predicting the host plant associations of insect herbivores using community-level interaction data.

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ongoing environmental change is increasingly associated with range expansions by many species, and the exposure of native plants (food crops, forestry, native biodiversity) to new suites of natural enemies. Read more

EASTBIO 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

EASTBIO 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.

The genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

*** Fully funded 3.5 year PhD position ***. Life on Earth is facing unprecedented challenges as a result of climate change. Understanding how organisms rapidly adapt to their environment is essential in not only reducing the number of species that will go extinct, but also in safeguarding future food production. Read more

EASTBIO Machine Learning methods for Experimental Evolution studies

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Evolutionary biologists have long been interested in the question how populations adapt to changing environments. In experimental evolution studies replicate populations are allowed to adapt to novel but controlled laboratory environments. Read more

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

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Our groups have been at the forefront of the global effort to identify future pandemic threats for many years and we introduced the concept of ‘Disease X’ to focus that discussion. Read more

EASTBIO Do fish cooperate to inspect predators?

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Cooperation is a fundamental process of life, ranging from bacterial interactions to human nations. Cooperation can take various forms, including foraging, reproduction and defence. Read more
