  *EASTBIO* Modelling telomere length dynamics in a multicellular organism.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr H Ferreira
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Health. Telomeres are protective structures that cap the ends of linear chromosomes. At their core, telomeres are formed from hundreds to thousands of repeats of a consensus telomeric DNA sequence.
  *EASTBIO* Morphogenesis by pulsed forces: studying how cells contract to shape a tissue
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr M Bischoff
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Health. Background. Physical interactions are crucial during morphogenesis. In order to shape tissues and organs, cells need to exert forces on their neighbours and respond to them.
  *EASTBIO* Impact of the microbiome on development and health
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
  *EASTBIO* How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis.
  *EASTBIO* Can we predict supergenes? Testing the genetic basis of a colour polymorphism in an aposematic bug.
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Understanding the genetic basis of traits remains central to understanding fundamental biological questions – such as how genetic variation maintained in populations – and to developing genetic interventions for beneficial or pest species.
  *EASTBIO* Dissecting the structure and function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  *EASTBIO* Bayesian approach to model evolutionary trajectories in experimental evolution
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr C Kosiol, Prof MG Ritchie
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. When populations adapt to new environments (e.g., new temperatures or new diets) this often leaves signatures in the genome.
  *EASTBIO* Control of the ParaHox genes in chordate evolution and development
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr D E K Ferrier, Prof J K Dale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulatory elements of these genes in both the invertebrate sea squirt Ciona intestinalis and the vertebrate Gallus gallus (chicken).
  *EASTBIO* What promotes rapid convergent adaptation under extreme selection? A population genomics approach in silent Hawaiian crickets
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. PROJECT GOALS. Whether and how organisms adapt to extreme environmental selection pressures often determines population and species fates.
