  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
  Greener Aircraft: Enhanced combustion of second-generation biofuels
  Dr K Knowles, Dr K Depuru Mohan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  Dispersal of Microplastics in the Marine Environment
  Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With an estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans each year, marine plastics are one of the biggest and most immediate threats facing the marine environment.
  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
  Downstream dispersal and transfer of macroplastics in river systems: a travel distance approach
  Dr M Powell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that severely impacts ecosystem form and function, human health, natural resource management and environmental aesthetics.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  War in the cabbage patch: a field test of metacommunity theory
  Prof J Bullock, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why do ecological communities vary in structure and dynamics across landscapes? Metacommunity theory suggests that this variation is caused by differences in species’ dispersal abilities, coupled with environmental and ecological filtering.
  The ones that got away: diversification and dispersal in the first neopterygians
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Neopterygians are a major vertebrate group of over 30,000 extant taxa comprising two radiations. holosteans, with fewer than 10 living species; and teleosts, with over 30,000 living species.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  Domestication of Perennial Plants: Evolution and Dispersal
  Dr R Spengler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Some of the most heavily investigated research topics in the sciences relate to the origins of agriculture. Over the past century and a half, scholars from across several fields of scholarship have dedicated their careers to the questions of when, where, how, and why plants and animals were first domesticated.
