  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Flocking dynamics in birds : the role of personality and experience
  Dr S Portugal
Applications accepted all year round
Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, and who is positioned where in the flock.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Trophic cascades resulting from the re-introduction of island birds
  Dr K C Burns
Applications accepted all year round
Approximately half of the avifauna of New Zealand has been driven to extinction following the arrival of humans. Most of what remains is restricted to predator-free offshore islands.
  Novel microbiome based biomarkers of poultry gut health (NARBADQ19CASE2)
  Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
The animal gastrointestinal tract contains trillions of microbes that play a critical role in their health and wellbeing. Poultry birds reared under intensive conditions are exposed to environmental stresses that disturb their gut microbiome and adversely impact on their health.
  Integrating data across multiple platforms in swine influenza
  Prof M Bailey
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
The project. Influenza A viruses cause disease in humans, pigs and birds, causing disease from mild or inapparent up to severe and fatal.
  PhD in Engineering: Contribution of Polarimetry to the Collocated MIMO Radar Concept for Detection and Identification of UAVs.
  Dr J Le Kernec, Dr F Fioranelli
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The increasing use of UAVs for civilian or military purposes and thus their integration into the airspace leads us to rethink surveillance systems.
  The impact of changes in river flow regime on the behaviour and population ecology of dippers, a riparian bird and bioindicator
  Dr S Sharp, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Freshwater ecosystems provide crucial ecosystem services and support exceptional biodiversity. However, rivers are highly influenced by environmental change and are among the most threatened of all ecosystems.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Analysis, occurrence, fate and effects of flubendazole in moorland river catchments
  Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Moorland areas are very important worldwide and are found, for example, in the British Isles, Russia, Canada, Scandinavia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Japan and South America (Holden et al., 2007).
