Molecules, neurons and morphology: the evolution of the nervous system in metazoan

The evolution of the nervous system is one of the most controversial problems in Biology (Pani et al., 2012; Holland et al., 2013; Martín-Durán et al., 2018; Arendt, 2018; Martín-Durán and Hejnol, 2019). Read more

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.

The genomic basis of obligate ant/plant symbioses

I am seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems. Read more

A new method to dissect kinase signalling pathways in health and disease

Phosphorylation is a vital regulatory mechanism in cells. Alterations in phosphorylation signalling are major contributors to disease, and numerous clinically important drugs target kinases to treat cancer and other diseases. Read more

Understanding the biological mechanisms underpinning the virulence of Varroa destructor to the European honey bee (Apis mellifera)

Insect pollinators are necessary for the reproductive success of 88% of flowering plants globally. Managed Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) offer mobile pollination services to complement wild pollinators and contribute to this ecosystem service. Read more

Improved computational methods for bacterial strain identification

Infections and infectious diseases – including bacterial infections - cost the NHS an estimated £30 billion each year. Key to countering threats to human health from such infections is the rapid and precise identification of novel bacterial strains. Read more
