Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

4-year PhD Studentship: Assessing welfare consequences of feed restrictions in dairy cattle: short-term, long-term and sustainability perspectives

Although freedom from hunger is a key pillar of animal welfare, feed restrictions are common on most farms. For instance, on dairy farms, pre-weaned calves are typically fed less than 50% of ad libitum consumption (4-6L of milk when they would drink up to 16L[1]). Read more

Uncovering anti-arrhythmic potential of stellate ganglion purinergic receptors.

Background. Cardiovascular disease affects over 30% of people worldwide, and is one of the leading causes of death each year. Elevated sympathetic nerve activity is a common feature of cardiovascular disease, contributing to end-organ damage, morbidity and mortality [1-3]. Read more

Physiological responses to anthropogenic noise

Anthropogenic noise has become a major global pollutant. Using state-of-the art phylogenetically controlled meta-analyses, we will quantify the effects of anthropogenic noise on physiological responses on animals. Read more

The University of Lincoln is offering one fully funded PhD studentship in connection to a four-year Royal Society funded project on the biomechanics of small jumping insects. Read more

Project at Queen's University Belfast: Environmental DNA from Fasciola parasites as a novel biomarker to improve agriculture in the UK

Fasciola hepatica, usually termed "the temperate liver fluke", is found worldwide and causes disease known as fasciolosis. This infection caused by helminth parasites, primarily impacts on ruminant production, including within the UK and many other European countries. Read more
