We have 24 Evolution (self) PhD Research Projects

Self-funded BMS project: Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell. Read more

Bacterial genome evolution

The University of Manchester’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology (https://sites.manchester.ac.uk/knhcentre/) is offering a unique self-funded PhD studentship in Bacterial genome evolution through the study of ancient omics. Read more

Sample Preparation for Next-Generation Cryo-ET

Cryo-electron tomography is an emerging technique with huge potential, from understanding large-scale tissue organisation to determining the structure of proteins in situ. Read more

Fully funded Ph.D. (or Master's) program in the field of systems neuroscience/computational neuroscience of Drosophila

About the Project. We study neural circuit principles of sensory perception and decision making using one of the most popular model organisms with a concise brain -- the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Read more

PhD Position in Genomic Medicine and Machine Learning

Applications are invited from self-funded PhD students to analyse data from the 100,000 genomes project. A background or a strong interest in at least one of the following areas is strongly preferred. Read more

Predicting body size shrinkage - the third universal response to environmental warming

Background. As Earth warms, and heat waves become more frequent, climate impacts occur over short and long timescales. Three proposed universal responses of organisms to climate warming are geographical range shifts, changes in timing (phenology) of life events, and a reduction in body size. Read more

The influence of agency and engagement with animals on conservation and welfare education in zoos

A defining role of zoos and museums is to educate visitors about animal welfare and conservation. One important aspect for the educational value of zoos and museums is the emotional connections visitors form. Read more

Robotics, Biomechatronics and Control

This project covers themes of bioinspiration for robotics and control but also include non-bioinspired areas that might focus on industrial or healthcare/medical applications. Read more

Host-Parasite Interactions

Our lab (. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jo_Cable). investigates host-parasite dynamics and the ecosystem impacts of invasive species. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Understanding the cell and molecular mechanism of natural and synthetic bioactive compounds in health and medicine

The molecular mechanism of many chemicals and bioactive natural products remain unclear, despite wide use these chemicals as medicines or traditional remedies for the treatment diseases or as antibiotics, in food supplements, and in the agrochemical industry. Read more
