  The long arm of parents: non-genetic effects on fitness, population viability and adaptive evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Dr S Immler, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Recent discoveries showed that parental environment affects offspring performance for many generations.
  Stressing the stressed: to investigate the fitness outcome resulting from the combination of environmental (pH) stress
  Dr K Wollenberg Valero, Dr J D Hardege, Dr V J Smith
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  You are what you eat: diet, cooperation and fitness in a tropical island bird
  Prof T A Burke, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In our study of a complete population of the Seychelles warbler, a cooperatively breeding insectivorous bird, we have measured the helping behaviour and fitness parameters of every individual.
  Pragmatic, positive and innovative approaches to tackle doping in amateur-, fitness- and sport to elite competitive sport
  Prof A Petroczi
Applications accepted all year round
The recent scandals in sport (e.g., the Lance Armstrong case, systematic doping in Russia, cover ups in IAAF) have questioned the legitimacy of the current anti-doping approach - and drawn attention to the multiple issues that warrant attention.
  Cancer Research UK funded Clinical Research Fellowship: Quantifying the Fitness Balance Between Aneuploidy and Driver Mutations in Cancer
  Dr S McClelland, Dr S Martin
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Our Cancer Research UK funded Clinical Research Fellowship provide up to 3 years’ support for clinically qualified professional to undertake research training within Barts Cancer Institute.
  Combining microfluidics and mathematical modelling to elucidate the effect of growth rate on antibiotic resistance and plasmid transfer
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J U Kreft, Dr D Vigolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Our central hypothesis is that antibiotic susceptibility, fitness costs of resistance mutations or plasmids and plasmid transfer rates are affected by the growth rate and physiology of individual cells.
  Investigating the cognitive underpinnings, behavioural development and fitness consequences of urban life in herring gulls
  Dr N Boogert, Dr L Kelley, Dr SC Votier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Links between animal behaviour, health and welfare
  Dr SDE Held
Applications accepted all year round
An animal’s behaviour both causes and reflects changes in its health and welfare. The biological processes underlying these relationships are increasingly well understood in humans.
  Sexual conflict in moths, NERC GW4+ DTP, PhD in Biosciences studentship
  Dr N Wedell, Prof D Hosken
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
