  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.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Diet and Foraging Ecology of Atlantic Storm Petrels: Geographical, temporal, taxonomic and human-mediated variation
  Dr R Thomas, Prof W Symondson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds are highly sensitive to changes within marine ecosystems. However, most research to date has primarily focused on larger species, typically apex predators.
  Projecting land-use change, its environmental impact, and pathways to reducing its impact
  Dr D Williams, Prof L Stringer
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Habitat loss and degradation, driven by agriculture, affects more species than any other threat (Tilman et al. 2017). As human populations and per capita consumption increase, this pressure is likely to increase massively, as vast new areas of natural habitats are converted to farmland.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  EASTBIO: Reconciling food security and biodiversity conservation: an integrative modelling approach.
  Prof J Travis, Dr P Alexander, Prof D Burslem
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Justin Travis (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/sbs/people/profiles/justin.travis. Dr Peter Alexander (University of Edinburgh).
  Conservation genomics of bumble bees (CENTA2-GENE4-HAMM)
  Dr R Hammond, Dr S Beleza
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bumble bees are a diverse group of key pollinators that suffer from the negative impact of anthropogenic change. This results in declining and fragmented populations that impacts on the bees themselves and so on the wild flowers and crops that they pollinate [2].
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Competition amongst endemic lizard species on a tropical island (Round Island, Mauritius)
  Prof W Symondson, Dr I Vaughan, Dr P Orozco Ter Wengel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Round Island, Mauritius, hosts a community of rare endemic lizard species. Their environment was cleared of most vegetation by introduced goats and rabbits (now eliminated).
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Bending the curve – restoring biodiversity by understanding taxon-biome-responses to global threats
  Ms K Jones
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor – Prof Kate Jones (University College London). Co-supervisors – Prof Rob Ewers (Imperial College London), Dr Marcus Rowcliffe (Zoological Society of London).
