  Recovery of algal communities along stress gradients resulting from an earthquake-disturbed coastal zone
  Prof D Schiel
Applications accepted all year round
In November 2016, a massive earthquake lifted over 100km of coastline of New Zealand’s South Island by up to 6m, causing considerable disruption to the nearshore marine ecosystem.
  Integrating broad and local-scale remote sensing to examine links between the coastal light environment and biological communities
  Prof D Schiel
Applications accepted all year round
THE UNIVERSITY OF CANTERBURY AND THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF WATER AND ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH are offering a PhD scholarship in a joint project that seeks to integrate broad and local-scale effects on the coastal light environment and primary productivity of benthic macroalgae.
  Assessing the ecological vulnerability of natural defences and risks to agricultural land following seawater flooding
  Prof R Thompson, Dr M Hanley
Application Deadline: 26 March 2019
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
  DTC BIO 16 - Understanding the effect of benthic bioturbation on chemical dynamics in lakes using an integrated biology, physics and modelling approach
  Prof K W Tang
Applications accepted all year round
Successful invasion by Chaoborus larvae (phantom midge) represents an ecological tipping point in eutrophic lakes where bioturbation of Chaoborus sustains internal nutrient loading, water deoxygenation and release of sediment methane.
  Fronds to forests: Individual-based and whole-forest models of kelp
  Prof M Heath, Dr D C Speirs
Applications accepted all year round
This fully-funded 3.5 year studentship will remain open only until filled, but the preferred interview time is in middle March. So we recommend applying immediately.
  Effect of Vegetation Patch on Compound Channel Flows
  Dr X Tang, Dr M Li
Applications accepted all year round
Many natural rivers and man-made channels have a compound cross-section, which comprises one deep main channel bounded with one or two shallow floodplains, where various vegetation exists.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 25 March 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.
  The evolution of human and gorilla locomotor ecology
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr W Sellers
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The transition from arboreal to terrestrial life has long been recognized as the major ecological transition in early human evolution that led to the evolution of bipedal locomotion and thus freed the hands from locomotor activities, and allowed the manufacture of stone tools.
  What is the role of discarding in the dynamics of the demersal fish community of the Firth of Clyde?
  Dr R Cook, Dr L Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
his fully-funded studentship will remain open only until filled, and so we recommend applying immediately. The Firth of Clyde has notoriously been referred to as an ‘ecological desert’ having been intensively overfished (Thurstan and Roberts, 2010).
