  Energy management in a demanding landscape: assessing long-term temporal and individual variation in energy management strategies among free ranging hill sheep.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Grazing by domestic hill sheep is the primary tool for sustainable management of upland areas of the UK. However, surprisingly little is known about the behaviour and energetics of sheep in these harsh upland landscapes.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Dr M Morecroft, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Understanding patterns of AMR selection and transmission between sheep and their environment
  Dr P Davies
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the key concerns to human and animal heath in the UK and globally. The role of farmed livestock in the selection and dissemination of AMR in the environment and the threat to human health is not fully known or understood.
  Selection and evolution of coat colour in a wild mammal
  Prof J Slate, Dr D Childs, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
This project offers the opportunity to study evolutionary genetics as part of the Soay sheep project, one of the most data-rich long-term studies of any vertebrate in the world.
  Understanding nitrous oxide “hot-spot” dynamics in upland soils
  Dr M Whelan, Dr J Kaduk
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a powerful greenhouse gas. It is important, therefore, to understand the factors controlling its emission – particularly from agricultural systems.
  Using biochemical and evolutionary approaches to characterise novel enzymes as possible drug targets in apicomplexan parasites of economically important livestock
  Dr PW Denny
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Eukaryotic protozoan parasites cause a range of serious and wide-spread infectious diseases in both humans and domestic animals, which frequently serve as reservoirs for infection.
  Assessing the effects of low-level exposure to chemical mixtures on DNA methylation, oxidative stress and temporal health
  Dr M Bellingham, Prof N Evans
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
We are ubiquitously exposed to environmental chemicals (ECs), some of which can impact human and animal health.
  Preventing neonatal infectious arthritis in lambs: sources, transmission and characterisation of Streptococcus dysgalactiae
  Dr J Duncan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Neonatal infectious arthritis is a severe and common disease of neonatal lambs which causes significant pain and suffering, substantial economic loss, and is a principle reason for antibiotic use in the sheep industry.
  *IAPETUS* Selection and genetics of life history in a wild mammal population
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Morrissey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how individuals allocate reproductive effort through their lives is fundamental to understanding the process of evolutionary adaptation, and has major implications for understanding other key processes such as population regulation and the evolution of senescence [1,2].
  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
