  Using zoos to protect climate change threatened taxa and to understand species traits for wildlife tourism
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Modern zoos have multiple objectives including public recreation and education, and aiding ex situ species conservation; the latter being increasingly important.
  Biodiversity colonisation of the Arctic under climate change: impacts on land, sea and people
  Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Climate is changing rapidly across the Arctic region, as well as across lower northern latitudes. As a consequence, there are widespread expectations that many species from temperate regions will move into Arctic ecosystems in the near future, and such changes are already being observed.
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Determining how ancient human societies and historic climate change have shaped Egypt’s mammalian fauna and its implications for our understanding of the links between people and the environment
  Dr J Bro-Jorgensen, Prof CD Thomas, Dr S Snape
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
  Erosion hazards in river catchments: How resilient is critical infrastructure to climate change?
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim is to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the future risks posed to critical infrastructure and the vulnerability and resilience of these assets.
  Adaptive management of stochastic parasite challenge in animals under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Climate change is causing greater variation in conditions for parasite transmission, and increased unpredictability in disease outbreaks in farmed and other animals.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
