  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social organisms? (BOURKEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  The Otherisation of Terror: Media reporting of “other people’s” terror attacks
  Dr A Tranchese, Dr N Vince, Dr M Saraceni
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Project description. There is an abundance of literature on how terrorist attacks are reported in Europe and the US. It is also well known that terrorist attacks in the Global South receive far less coverage than those perpetrated in the Global North.
  Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  Impact of mesoscale eddies on the plankton communities of the Polar Frontal zone (TARLINGUBAS19ARIES)
  Prof G Tarling, Dr C Robinson, Prof W Wilson, Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. This PhD will provide the opportunity to study the remote and isolated Southern Ocean. Isolation is believed to make the fauna of the Southern Ocean unique but recent evidence of encroachments of pelagic fauna across the Polar Front challenges this view.

  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
