We have 17 Evolution PhD Research Projects

Using CRISPR single-cell genomic screens to understand neurodevelopmental disorders

PhD position is available for a highly motivated trainee in the field of Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics at Neurotranscriptomics Laboratory within the EMBL Australia and Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney. Read more

Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations

PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required) or Quantitative Biology with an interest in experiment. Read more

Untangling the evolutionary interplay between infectious disease and dietary deficiency with ancient genomes

Infectious disease and dietary deficiency are two of the greatest drivers of adaptive evolution in modern human populations. These pressures have intensified since the onset of agriculture and often underlie acute episodes of population collapse, e.g. Read more

Male-male competition vs female choice: same-same or something different?

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on sexual selection in Drosophila. Typically, males compete with one another for access to females, and females choose their preferred suitor among competing males. Read more

Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

Generation of single cell multi-omics computational methods for biological insights and novel deconvolution techniques for bulk omics data

  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
A unique PhD opportunity through a collaboration of Unilever with the University of Glasgow! We are looking for a motivated student with a strong background in computational, statistical, mathematical or physical sciences and interests in big data, genomics and immunology. Read more

Quantitative regulation of gene expression in single mammalian cells: seeking outstanding PhD candidates

The project. Populations of mammalian cells often contain a highly variable number of RNA transcripts for any given gene. This variability was originally assumed to be “noise”, but we now know that it arises due to multi-level mechanisms of transcript homeostasis operating in each cell. Read more

Information processing in neuronal networks

Open position is available in the Levy lab at the Faculty of Biology, Technion–Israel Institute of Technology (. Read more

Genomics of sexual trait expression in black grouse

  Research Group: Hoffman research group (molecular ecology)
An outstanding opportunity is available for a PhD student to work on the evolutionary genomics of sexual trait expression in an iconic avian model system, the black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix). The position is available in Joe Hoffman’s research group ( at the Department of Animal Behaviour at Bielefeld University and is fully funded for three years. Read more

Measuring cancer evolution in a changing tumour microenvironment

Application Deadline. Open until the position is filled. Requirements. The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification), in Computational Biology/Bioinformatics/Mathematical Biology/Computer Science/Physics. 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
