  *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.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Structural Brain Plasticity in Health, Regeneration and Repair
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  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.
  Epigenetics, embryogenesis and plasticity in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr A.D. Peel
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
All animals respond to their environment but some are able generate morphologically and behaviourally distinct individuals from the same genome in response to an environmental cue, a phenomenon known as phenotypic plasticity.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Applications accepted all year round
Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  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.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  Cell plasticity in development and disease
  Dr K Campbell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Although 90% of cancer deaths are caused by metastasis, the underlying pathogenic mechanisms are poorly understood.
  Electric field assisted machining: understanding mechanical (super)plasticity in metals and alloys induced by high-intensity electric fields for improvement of material processing in modern manufacture - Ref: AR1UF2018
  Dr A Roy
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
The application of electric-field in materials processing will revolutionise future manufacturing. In comparison with conventional thermo-mechanical processing, it is rapid, consumes less energy, has a lower environmental impact and requires less capital investment.
  Imaging neurotransmitter release to measure synaptic plasticity underlying associative memory
  Dr A Lin
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
How does the brain encode memories? We think learning occurs by changes in the strength of synaptic connections between neurons, but the precise mechanisms by which this synaptic plasticity occurs is often unknown.
