(37) Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral position summary/title: Poultry production is a major component of the agricultural sector in the UK and worldwide. Over 90 million eggs are set for incubation each month in the UK alone. Environmental conditions during incubation are vital for proper development and can have long lasting consequences post-hatch. Hatchability and hatch synchrony are two areas of major industry concern, as low hatchability and asynchronous hatch result in chick loss. Reduction of hatch asynchrony and improvement of hatchability represents a key means to improve animal welfare and efficiency. In commercial settings eggs are incubated in darkness but light exposure during incubation has emerged as a potential means of improving hatchability and hatch synchrony. Our understanding of how light exposure acts during incubation, and how it can be optimized remains limited. Our recent work has shown that extra-retinal photoreceptors (non-visual opsins) represent a widespread and evolutionarily ancient form of light detection and response that could readily mediate these developmental effects. Our data has shown that extra-retinal photoreceptor expression begins at least several days before that of visual opsin expression and displays marked changes across the developmental time course.
