  Hydrologic versus hydraulic predictors of ecological responses to changing flow regimes: an evaluation of traditional versus emerging methods
  Dr S Sharifi, Dr A Webb
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The world’s rivers are undergoing unprecedented changes in their flow regimes. These changes can be negative impacts, such as those wrought through flow abstraction for irrigation, flow regime changes for hydropower or flood control, or long-term reductions in runoff caused by climate change (Dudgeon et al.
  Ecological Effects of Microplastics in Freshwater Ecosystems
  Dr K Simon
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position addressing the ecological effects of microplastics in freshwater and estuarine ecosystems is available in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  A Numerical Study of Diffusive Predator-Prey System with Autotaxis and Non-linear Convection
  Dr N Petrovskaya
Applications accepted all year round
This project will apply advanced numerical methods to study a real-world ecological problem of high theoretical and practical importance, such as mechanisms of spatiotemporal pattern formation in ecological communities.
  Global diversity and ecosystem functions of a newly discovered plant-microbe symbiosis
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending, Dr C Quince
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown plant-microbial symbiosis with global distribution. You will unravel the diversity of the fungal symbionts involved, the factors which control their distribution, and determine its potential contribution to ecosystem processes through genome analysis.
  Community / ecosystem ecological impacts of coexisting herbivores in Qinghai Tibetan Plateau alpine meadows
  Prof J Knops, Dr K Parr
Applications accepted all year round
One of the most diverse grasslands on Earth are Tibetan alpine meadows, located on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. These meadows average 30 to 40 plant species per 0.25 square meter.
  Courting Environmental Justice: Exploring the Adjudicatory Dimensions in a Globalised World (REF: SF18/LAW/GILL)
  Dr G Gill
Applications accepted all year round
Access to justice rights, a strong procedural dimension, in environmental justice discourse requires fair, open, informed and inclusive state institutional processes.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Offshore Energy and Sustainable Marine Ecosystems: A Bayesian Approach to Cumulative Effects Assessment
  Dr B E Scott, Dr N D Trifonova, Dr J H Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
To avoid catastrophic climate change the world needs to switch to renewable energy. This will require the placement and operation of very large offshore windfarms (fixed and floating) as well as tidal stream, lagoons and wave energy developments.
