  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.

Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.

  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].
  Charge conservation and cloud formation in planet atmospheres
  Dr C Helling
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As result of formation and evolution processes, exoplanets can have hugely different properties, e.g. giant gas planets, rocky planets, mini-neptunes.
  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.
