  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).
  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.
  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.
  *IAPETUS* The role of phenotypic plasticity in rapid adaptation
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Population responses to dramatic environmental pressure can involve correspondingly dramatic adaptation characterised by rapid change.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round
We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  New bioinformatics and statistical methods for the analysis and visualisation of FMDV sequences
  Dr P Ribeca, Dr J Prada, Dr D Horton
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Due to the multidisciplinary nature of this project, applicants are required to hold an undergraduate degree in either Bioinformatics, Biological Sciences, Computer Sciences, Statistics or related subject with at least a 2:1 or equivalent.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round
Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution in silico and in vitro: environmental change, mutation and space
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Understanding evolutionary processes requires an interplay between wet-lab experiment and computational simulation [1]. This project will use model systems for both to explore the interplay of evolutionary processes (primarily mutation) and the spatial environment.
