  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Resistance and susceptibility in interactions between apple and woolly aphids (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_6)
  Ms F Fernández, Dr G Powell
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  Dissecting the role of DNA methylation in spiral cleavage
  Dr JM Martin, Dr R Lowe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Nearly all animals originate during a process called embryogenesis, in which a single cell – the zygote – develops into a multicellular complex organism.
  Do bees feel pain?
  Prof L Chittka, Dr E Versace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The assessment of pain in animals is a moral obligation in deciding on strategies for animal welfare, for domestic animals and those that are hunted in the wild, as well as animals used for experimentation in the laboratory.
  Unravelling the genomic basis of bacterial symbiosis in deep-sea annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin, Dr L Henry, Dr Y Wurm
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mutualistic relationships between bacteria and complex organisms have repeatedly evolved and this has allowed host organisms to exploit new environments and foods.
  Actions of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in seabirds
  Prof G Hardiman, Prof P M Thompson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Gary Hardiman of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences/Institute for Global Food Security, Professor Paul Thompson of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences/Lighthouse Field Station, and Dr Pierre Bize of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
  Bio-inspiration from molluscs: flexible armour with embedded sensing capacity
  Dr J Sigwart, Dr A Brasier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Julia Sigwart of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences, Dr Alex Brasier of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences, and Mr Shaun Graham of Carl Zeiss Microscopy.
