  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.

  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
