  Characterising mechanisms that control Marek's Disease Virus genome release from telomeres during reactivation from latency
  Dr N J Royle, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Infection by Marek’s Disease Virus (MDV) is followed by latency, T-cell lymphomas and reactivation. It has significant deleterious effects on chicken health and welfare, with an annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the global poultry meat and egg production industries.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Cognitive control over feeding behaviour: The impact of prefrontal inputs onto hypothalamic MCH populations
  Dr J Apergis-Schoute, Dr T V Gerdjikov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is critical for optimising behavioural outcomes by prioritising choices relevant to an animal’s well-being.
  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.
  Eel Anguilla anguilla migration, barriers and loss of ecosystem services: the case of the River Parrett catchment, Somerset Levels.
  Prof S Rice, Dr P Wood, Dr A Pledger
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Spawning habitat characteristics of lithophilic fish – using experimental approaches to inform river restoration
  Dr P Wood, Dr D Ryves, Dr A Pledger
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019

  The dopaminergic basis of behaviour
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McCutcheon
Applications accepted all year round
The neurotransmitter dopamine has an important role in the vertebrate brain, modulating behaviours that include locomotion, aggression, feeding and reward.
  The effects of stress on serotonergic signalling and brain development
  Dr W NORTON, Dr V Straub
Applications accepted all year round
Pre- and early postnatal stress has been shown to affect brain development and adult behaviour, and is a known risk factor for the onset of anxiety and depression in later life.
  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
