PhD Project: Multi-layered bacterial genome defences: linking molecular mechanisms to bacteria-MGE conflicts in single cells, populations, and communities, [computational biology; mathematical modelling] –www.findaphd.com
PhD project Bacterial immunity
The aim of this project is to support a multi-disciplinary team of researchers in their quest to unravel how complete, multi-layered, bacterial immune systems have evolved and operate at the level of individual molecules, cells, populations, and microbial communities. Specifically, the successful candidate will apply mathematical modelling techniques, such as population-level deterministic models and spatially-explicit individual-based frameworks, to generate new evolutionary theory to predict the ecological conditions underlying the selection for or against multi-layered defences.
