  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Keeping habitats connected: Does wildlife mitigation work?
  Dr S Perkins, Dr E Chadwick
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loss of biodiversity due to anthropogenic impacts is one of the major global challenges of our time. Roads can act as barriers, or cause mortality, and in areas where traffic speed/road density are high, roads exert strong negative local impacts on wildlife populations (Forman and Alexander, 1998).
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat connectivity (FRANCOUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Dr T Luisetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The establishment of robust networks of protected areas is key to address biodiversity loss. Species that move between breeding and non-breeding sites are among those that are most challenging to protect.
  Valuing ecosystem services provided by UK bats under climate change. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr O Razgour
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Orly Razgour, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Archaeology

The restoration of ecosystems is being implemented in large areas in Scotland with the goal of reinstating lost biodiversity and ecosystem functions.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Long-term environmental influences on the ecology and conservation of river birds
  Prof S Ormerod, Dr I Vaughan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Covering less than 1% of Earth’s surface, freshwater ecosystems host around 10% of the Earth’s species and a third of all vertebrates.
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Prof OE Gaggiotti
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Kelp forests are amongst the world’s most productive and extensive habitats, rivalling the productivity of tropical rainforests.
  Reconciling lethal control of an iconic native species (red deer Cervus elaphus) with nature conservation within a multiple-use landscape
  Dr A Ward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sustainable use of renewable natural resources, including wildlife populations, is becoming more challenging as the human population grows (White & Ward 2011).
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Towards a paradigm shift in ecological risk assessment: developing novel ecosystem-basedapproaches to enhance biodiversity conservation
  Prof P White, Prof L Maltby, Dr C Rivetti
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current global and national declines in biodiversity mean there is an urgent need to develop more robust approaches for conserving key ecosystem functions and services.
