  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  The evolution of primate vocal signals: from call production to signal function
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr J Dunn, Dr C Wascher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Gastric microbiome, gastric disease and welfare in horses in training
  Research Group: School of Veterinary Medicine
  Dr D Sutton, Dr D McKeegan
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. The purpose of this project is to characterise the gastric microbiome of horses in training, and determine its relationship to gastric pathology and quantitative welfare indices.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish

  PhD position on dynamic modelling of animal behaviours using machine learning, intelligent sensors and computational ethology
  Dr T Norton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laboratory of Measure, Model, Manage Bio-Responses (M3-BIORES) is a world-leading research laboratory focussing on real-time monitoring and management of animal behaviours.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Effects of essential aminoacid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function, ageing and neurodegeneration.
  Prof B Platt, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, and type 2 diabetes in our aged population.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
