  Learning from the past to predict and reduce the risk of infectious disease pandemics
  Dr F Perez-Reche, Prof N Strachan
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organisation reports that infectious diseases cause 63% of childhood deaths and 48% of premature deaths. There is the ongoing risk of epidemics and pandemics that can cause widespread morbidity and mortality (Spanish flu, ebola, SARS, E.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  The evolution of primate vocal signals: from call production to signal function
  Dr J Dunn, Dr C Wascher
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  The failure of oncometabolites to adapt the type 2 diabetic heart and kidneys to hypoxia
  Dr M Dodd
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Nearly two thirds of all deaths associated with type 2 diabetes are from heart and kidney.
  The genomic signatures of adaptation in harmful Sargassum blooms of the Caribbean Sea (CASE studentship)
  Dr J.H. Bothwell, Dr M Kapralov
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This CASE studentship will apply evolutionary genomic approaches to understand environmental adaptation in the Caribbean harmful bloom-forming macroalgae, Sargassum natans.
  Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations
  Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required).
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
