Adaptive Organismal Biology PhD    Back

The University of Manchester Course Type: PhD Start Date: To be announced
Location: Manchester, United Kingdom Duration: see details Fees/total cost: EUR 76,960.80 (GBP 56,000.00) - EUR 104,446.80 (GBP 76,000.00)

Description

PhD programmes are based on individual research projects that last 3 or 4 years, working with a specific academic supervisor (principle investigators). Applicants are specifically matched with a principle investigator based on their research interests and background. Adaptive Organismal Biology seeks to understand the responses of complex biological systems to environmental challenges. Research involves comparative and model hopping approaches at whole organism, tissue, cell and gene expression levels.

At The University of Manchester there are three main focuses of research within Adaptive Organismal Biology:

  • The Integrative and Comparative Physiology group study torpor and lung surfactant in arousal of bats, sustainability of fish and reptile heart function in changing thermal environments and osmoregulatory physiology of fish migrating between sea and freshwater.
  • The Aquatic Integrative Biology group examine bioavailability and toxicology of aluminium in freshwater snails and crayfish, while developing novel techniques (eg Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy analysis) to resolve lake plankton population dynamics.
  • The Biomechanics group combines computational simulation analysis of bipedal movement in hominids, mechanical investigations of anti-herbivore defence in grasses and in vivo studies of respiratory movements in birds.
