  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.
  Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis
  Dr M Kim, Prof S Turner
Applications accepted all year round
The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology.
  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).
  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.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  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.
  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.
