  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship - Modelling butterfly abundance at varying spatial scales to inform conservation delivery
  Dr R McCrea
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
A key feature of statistical models applied to butterflies involves accounting for seasonal variation in counts, as butterflies emerge throughout the year via one or more broods.
  Butterfly evo-devo in a conservation context: how embryos respond to pesticides and immune challenges
  Dr C Breuker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Over the course of their life cycle butterflies are exposed to a range of environmental factors, which act as both inducers of phenotypic variation as well as selective agents.
  Smarter habitat restoration in harmony with species reintroductions – testing solutions for the Chequered Skipper
  Dr J Hodgson, Dr I J Saccheri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2018
Note short deadline - apply now for a great opportunity to inform species recovery while developing quantitative skills!. Habitat loss and degradation remain major threats to species around the world, yet habitat restoration is also enjoying significant success in places.
  Mine sites as hotspots for insect biodiversity PhD (Funded)
  Prof R Ffrench-Constant, Dr J Bennie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Professor Richard ffrench-Constant, University of Exeter. Dr Jon Bennie, University of Exeter. Dr Ilya Maclean, University of Exeter.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Biodiversity and ecosystem services: Birds, bats, bees, and cocoa trees
  Dr A Welch, Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Human populations are increasing rapidly and consumption is intensifying. Land is being cleared at a dramatic pace and biodiversity, which provides critical ecosystem services, is being lost at an unprecedented rate.
  The validation of ecological citizen science data
  Dr P Stephens, Mr D Roy, Dr J Judge, Dr G Smith
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Citizen science approaches to wildlife monitoring are growing in scope, scale and prevalence. Long-running examples such as the Pan-European Common Birds Monitoring Scheme, and the UK’s Butterfly Monitoring Scheme show the important impact that these approaches can have on both science and monitoring.
  Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
 These scholarships include a Research Council maintenance grant of £14,777 (2018/19 rate) and cover tuition fees at the home/EU rate.
