Quantifying animal personality to explain the coexistence and environmental responses of ants

Organisms vary. Some are large, some are small. Some bite, some photosynthesize, and some soar above our heads. What does this variation in organismal form and function mean? A central narrative is that the variation in these traits, and the relationships among them, define “dimensions of ecological strategy”. Read more

Inter- and intra- individual variation in communication and signaling in colonially breeding pinnipeds

Background. It is now widely recognised that wild animal populations are typically comprised of individuals with differing behavioural phenotypes, such as foraging specialisms, space use and dispersal patterns, stress coping styles and consistent individual differences (CIDs) in behaviour (aka. Read more

Investigating and manipulating neural markers of behavioural flexibility and inhibitory control

The neural basis of behavioural flexibility is still poorly understood. Those affected by compulsive behaviours, such as compulsive eating, regularly experience a subjective sense of loss of control over their actions. Read more

Investigating locus coeruleus function in autism mouse models

Applications are invited for one 3.5 year full-time fully funded PhD studentship in the lab of Dr Rebecca Jordan within the Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain at the University of Edinburgh. Read more

Genomic and behavioural mechanisms driving the evolution of a novel visual signal in smoky rubyspot damselflies

Sexually selected animal visual signals have long fascinated biologists and lay-people alike, and the processes by which novel signals evolve has long been an important area of research among biologists interested in sexual selection [1]. Read more

Behavioural adaptation to climate change in birds

It has been suggested that social species have evolved in harsh environmental conditions, allowing for successful reproduction and survival in environments where pairs alone cannot succeed. Read more

Commercial partner: . Five Lives SAS. , London. This programme offers an exciting opportunity for multi-disciplinary research, working with a dedicated team of scientists, clinicians, and informaticians, to address the UK’s #1 public health problem, dementia. Read more

EASTBIO Testing computational principles of multisensory integration in Synaesthesia

The use of signals from different senses is often beneficial to an organism. A prominent example is the speed-up of responses to two or more redundant signals relative to the unisensory components, which is known as redundant signals effect (RSE). Read more
