  (BBSRC DTP) The evolution and development of mutualistic cooperation in nonhuman primates and humans
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz, Dr E Fe-Rodriguez, Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most perplexing problems in biology and psychology is human cooperation. How can coordination and prosocial acts such as helping exist in the face of free-riding and cheating? One solution involves mutualistic interactions.
  State-dependent cooperation among male and female parents
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Regan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biparental care occurs when males and females cooperate to provide care for their joint offspring, and although relatively rare, this form of has evolved repeatedly in birds, mammals, amphibians, fishes and insects.
  EASTBIO Aging and social behaviour
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Smiseth, Dr J Moorad
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aging is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Most current research focuses on how aging affects those individuals who do the aging.
  Social evolution in planarian flatworms
  Prof A Griffin
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multicellular organisms are a remarkable feat of cooperation, with the actions of up to billions of cells coordinated to produce a single coherent individual.
  Social dynamics in chimpanzees

  The global drivers of shifts in mutualistic dependence
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.
  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.
  Division of labour
  Prof S West
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Division of labour is when cooperating individuals specialise to perform different tasks. Division occurs across the tree of life, from bacteria to birds, and represents an extreme form of cooperation, which is hard to explain from an evolutionary perspective.
