  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.
  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.
  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.
  Computer simulations DaisyWord and Gaia: A study on the impact of phenotypic plasticity and gene expression under global warming scenarios (VOOSTERHOUTCU19SF)
  Prof C Van Oosterhout
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The Gaia hypothesis (Lovelock & Margulis 1974) proposes that organisms have a significant effect on the physical and chemical environment on Earth, and that feedback loops between organisms and the environment have evolved that stabilize the environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Mechanisms of mutation rate plasticity
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Dr R Krašovec, Dr P Paszek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The chance that an organism mutates, for instance that a microbe mutates to resist an antibiotic, can depend on that organism’s environment.
  Plasticity of Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis in Epithelia.
  Dr N Bulgakova, Prof E Smythe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Levels of cell surface proteins are key for tissue integrity and cell-cell communication and, during development, proteins levels are rapidly adjusted to the needs of the developing tissue.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Neuronal excitation and inhibition are very carefully balanced in the brain, and perturbed excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance has been linked to diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
  Assessing the hemodynamic signal sources of fMRI based spontaneous connectivity maps and how neuronal plasticity such as increased spatial working memory can change these networks
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round
Many psychiatric (e.g. schizophrenia) and neurological diseases are characterised by a disturbance of the connections between different parts of the brain that need to communicate with one another.
  Plasticity of visual processing in primary visual cortex
  Prof L Lagnado
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The responses of pyramidal neurons in primary visual cortex (V1) of mice are altered under different behavioural states.
