  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use
  Prof J A Hawkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project encompasses 1. evolutionary aspects of medicinal plant use and 2. authentication. You will collect DNA sequence data at the level of a whole flora and at the level of a genus.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
  Forensic acarology: the importance of mites in forensic investigations
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Man stores many different products for a variety of purposes. Stored products include food, wood, clothing and also items in museums stored for posterity.
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
