  Stressed! How do animals cope with what life throws at them?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animals face many environmental stresses, and this is only likely to get worse as we face an era of rapid climate change. This brings into sharp focus the need to understand what the responses to stressors are and what molecular mechanisms underpin the strategies animals use to cope with stress.
  Modelling disease spread through populations of territorial animals and the effect of culling
  Dr J Potts, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
The culling of animals in an attempt to slow or halt disease spread is a controversial method, yet frequently adopted by government agencies in the UK and beyond.
  A culture of care in animal research from a psychological perspective
  Dr J J Maltby, Dr C Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Use of animals in research has contributed to advancing basic science and the development of treatment for human diseases. UK animal research, legally regulated via Animals Scientific Procedures Acts (ASPA) , requires animal units to demonstrate a Culture of Care which ensures the humane care of laboratory animals.
  Adapt or die - how do animals respond to changing environments?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals respond to new or changing environments? Why is it that some species can adapt or move, while others face extinction?.
  Super-fast, super-resolution imaging in awake, behaving animals
  Prof N Hartell, Prof J Lees
Applications accepted all year round
Recent advances in microscopy have made it possible to record optically from neurones in the brain in awake, behaving animals. One approach is to use miniature, head mounted microscopes combined with a thin, implanted, objective lens.
  PhD position on dynamic modelling of animal behaviours using machine learning, intelligent sensors and computational ethology
  Dr T Norton
Applications accepted all year round
The laboratory of Measure, Model, Manage Bio-Responses (M3-BIORES) is a world-leading research laboratory focussing on real-time monitoring and management of animal behaviours.
  Stress mechanisms as modulators of behavioural plasticity in locust swarming behaviour
  Dr S Ott, Dr T Matheson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their morphology, physiology and behaviour (their 'phenotype') to changing environmental conditions. This phenotypic plasticity entails a reinterpretation of an animal's genetic information.
  Cryptosporidium parvum – B-cells as a route to control
  Dr R Flynn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cryptosporidium parvum infection presents a major threat to calf health and survival as a global cause of enteric disease. Calves under the age of 2 months are 41 times more likely to shed oocysts in comparison with animals aged 4 months or above.
  Early life predictors of long-life health and productivity in farm animals
  Prof G Banos, Dr X Donadeu
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
For project description and full application procedures please go to. https://www.ed.ac.uk/roslin/postgraduate/studentships/early-life-predictors-of-long-life-health-and-productivity-in-farm-animals.
  Development of a next-generation biosensor system for detecting concentrations and tissue distribution of heavy metals in living aquatic animals. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Prof S Scholpp
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Associate Professor Steffen Scholpp, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr David Spurgeon, Centre for the Ecology and Hydrology (CEH).
