  Flying sentinels: using a long-distance migratory bird to assess exposure to POPs over two continents and their health consequences
  Dr P Bize, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human activities have for side effects the introduction in natural environments of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
  Competitive PhD scholarship opportunities at the School of Anthropology and Conservation (SAC)
The. School. has an international reputation for the. research. of its academic staff, many of whom are leaders in their respective fields.
  PhD in the Diversification of Life - Generating Novel Datasets to Examine Species Form Variety
  Dr G Thomas
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding how and why the diversity of life on earth varies through time and geographic space is one of the fundamental underpinnings of evolutionary and conservation biology.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  Quantifying the role of oceanic storminess in determining the survival and recruitment of long-distance, oversea, migratory birds
  Dr N Reid, Prof J Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Some birds make long-distance oversea migrations from their wintering to breeding grounds and back again.
  Social evolution in shorebirds: mating systems, population demography and biodiversity conservation
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Lead supervisor. Dr Tamas Szekely, Milner Centre for Evolution, University of Bath, email. [email protected] Co-supervisors. (1) Dr Ben Ashby, Dept of Mathematics, (2) Dr Richard James, Dept of Physics.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr G Powney, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  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, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Picking climate change winners for assisted gene flow interventions on coral reefs
  Dr JR Guest
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. One of the most important questions for biodiversity conservation in the face of global climate change is whether species will adapt, acclimatise, migrate or be extirpated.
