  (BBSRC DTP) Factors educating myeloid cell progenitors in the bone marrow of wild mice
  Prof K Else, Dr J Grainger, Dr I Mair
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A multitude of factors such as infection history (Askenase et al. 2015), microbiota composition (Khosravi et al. 2014, Balmer et al.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  (BBSRC DTP) Microbial population diversity as a driver of antibiotic resistance evolution
  Dr D Gifford, Dr C Knight, Dr T Gilman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Classically, microbial evolution has been thought to progress via rapid sweeps of beneficial mutations that quickly fix within populations—the so-called ‘strong selection, weak mutation’ model.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Effect of environmental changes on the maintenance of biodiversity
  Prof D Delneri, Dr T Gilman
Applications accepted all year round
Yeast has become over the last decade an excellent model system for environmental genomics studies of the molecular mechanisms underpinning adaptation and speciation (Ref 1 & 2).
  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.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  CompSci2NetSci: building the next generation of evolving complex networks
  Dr E Navarro-Lopez
Applications accepted all year round
A complex network can be interpreted from the graph theory perspective as a large number of interacting and interdependent systems (nodes) coupled in a non-trivial and non-regular way (links).
  (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.
