  Tracking adaptation to climate change using big data
  Prof J Ford, Prof J Minx
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Adaptation has become a core element of climate change policy and research, and figures prominently in the UN Paris Agreement (Lesnikowski et al., 2017; Magnan and Ribera, 2016).
  Documenting and evaluating adaptation to climate change in the south of England
  Prof EL Tompkins
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
What is the spectrum, distribution and prevalence of human adaptations to flood events and heatwaves? Which strategies to adapt to any environmental shock or stress are most common and which most rare? The short answer is – we don’t know.
  Growing on the edge: The genomic basis of coastal adaptation in eyebrights (Euphrasia)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Twyford, Prof R Ennos
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Local adaptation enables plant populations to survive in extremely harsh environments. Coastal habitats present a suite of challenging conditions characterised by drying oceanic salt spray and osmotically stressful high salinity soils.
  Understanding temperature adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies
  Dr N Nadeau, Prof J Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
We are seeking an enthusiastic student with interests in ecology, evolution and genetics to work on a project investigating thermal adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies.
  Mitigation, adaptation, built asset management and climate change
  Prof K Jones, Dr A Coday
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Built Environment Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/built-environment-research-group.
  Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation in the NHS England: The impact of policies on strategies and processes
  Dr P Mothan-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this PhD project is to map and evaluate the different policies, strategies and processes of the NHS England with regards to climate change adaptation and mitigation and to measure and suggest improvements on how the health sector contributes to two of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
  Natural adaptation of extremophile microalgae to acid mine drainage environments through experimental evolution
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Pollution from waste-streams such as abandoned mine sites is a major environmental problem that has deleterious consequences for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world.
  *IAPETUS* The role of phenotypic plasticity in rapid adaptation
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Population responses to dramatic environmental pressure can involve correspondingly dramatic adaptation characterised by rapid change.
  Can marine phytoplankton adapt to global warming?
  Dr G Yvon-Durocher, Prof C Brownlee, Dr J Bruggeman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Bleaching and the genetic mechanisms for acclimation and adaptation in coral reefs
  Dr N Kamenos, Dr H Burdett, Dr D Exton, Dr S Hennige
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The ecosystem services provided by coral reefs are worth over $100 billion annually and include coast line protection, tourism, food and medical derivatives.
