  Taxonomy and biogeography of the world’s largest ecosystem based on combined morphological and molecular studies of amphipods
  Dr T Horton, Dr A Glover
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Recent years have seen increased expeditions to survey and sample the Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ), in the central Pacific Ocean, driven by commercial interests in the potential extraction of polymetallic nodules in the region (Glover et al., 2015).
  Success and Vulnerability in the Amazon
  Prof O Phillips, Dr T Baker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Few tasks in science are more important and urgent than revealing the rules that govern why some living things are more abundant than others and which will be most vulnerable in our rapidly changing world.
  Oceanic island museomics: human impact and the natural laboratory paradigm
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Testing the assumptions of the natural laboratory paradigm – the idea that islands are ideal model systems for studying evolution.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Building species interactions into macroevolutionary analyses of trait and range evolution
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Many classical theories in evolutionary biology centre around the evolutionary impacts of competition between species. Most phylogenetic comparative methods (PCMs), however, have been designed with the assumption that lineages evolve independently of one another.
  Re-thinking insect adaptation to Antarctica’s extreme environments
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Antarctica has been isolated from the other Southern Hemisphere continents for at least 28 million years (Myr). Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  Re-evaluating the Role of Drylands in the Global Carbon Budget
  Dr Alan Grainger
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Re-evaluating the Role of Drylands in the Global Carbon Budget. Dr Alan Grainger. Contact email. [email protected] Introduction.
  PhD funded studentship in ‘Climate variability and disease in early modern eastern England’
  Prof M Macklin, Dr M Hannaford, Dr K Beck
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Climate variability and extreme weather can be a direct or indirect contributor to epidemics.
