Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology. Read more

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion. Read more

Genomics of inbreeding in Seychelles warblers

In just 50 years the global Seychelles warbler population has recovered from <30 birds on a single island, Cousin, to a population of several thousand on multiple islands thanks to a combination of habitat restoration and translocation. Read more

Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

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

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

Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. 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

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite relationships

Interactions between parasites and their hosts are one of the major driving forces in ecology and evolution. Social insects, as one of the dominant group of land animals and possessors of complex social systems, provide a fascinating host system within which to study these forces. Read more

How to build a spider: investigating the evolution and development of spider segments

Spiders, like most other arthropods, build their posterior body segments one at a time from a segment addition zone (SAZ). This involves the Wnt and Delta-Notch signaling pathways and is analogous to the formation of somites from the presomitic mesoderm in vertebrates. Read more
