  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  Unravelling the Joint Evolution of Dispersal and Mating Behaviours in Spatially-Structured Populations Using Experimental Evolution
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 25 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  Combating summer mortality in abalone: can a little bit of stress be beneficial?
  Prof J Strugnell, Dr IR Cooke
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summer mortality is a phenomenon that causes mass dies offs of molluscs during the summer months. Summer mortality affected molluscs include many economically important animals including; oysters, mussels, clams, scallops and abalone.
  Evolutionary Theory: Exploring the role of intragenomic conflict in the evolution of molecular mechanisms
  Dr F Ubeda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

I research how genes, individuals, and social structures can evolve making use of mathematical models.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Understanding basic biological mechanisms and the development of targeted therapies
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD proposal is aimed at understanding some of the fundamental mechanism(s) that control extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and to develop new technologies and therapeutic based on changes in fibroblast gene expression profiling and surface antibodies during the development of connective tissue fibrosis.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  The genomic basis of chiral variation and speciation in mirror-image snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr A MacColl
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

While our bodies are bilaterally symmetric on the outside, the internal organs exhibit consistent, directional asymmetries in their position or anatomy, such that left/right positional errors are an important class of human birth defect, and in later life, numerous diseases affect seemingly symmetric organs in a lateralised fashion.
