  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round
This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  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.
  Ecology of Insect Pests of Stored Products and Museums
  Dr G J Holloway
Applications accepted all year round
Man stores many different products for a variety of purposes. Stored products include food, wood, clothing and also items in museums stored for posterity.
  Drone Ecology: robust methods for wildlife research using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
  Dr M Wood, Mr N Entwistle
Applications accepted all year round
Terrestrial ecological surveys generally require ecologists to be present in the environment. For large environments or those with restricted access, ecologists have used helicopters or light aircraft to undertake aerial surveys.
  The impact of changes in river flow regime on the behaviour and population ecology of dippers, a riparian bird and bioindicator
  Dr S Sharp, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Freshwater ecosystems provide crucial ecosystem services and support exceptional biodiversity. However, rivers are highly influenced by environmental change and are among the most threatened of all ecosystems.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  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.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round
The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
  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.
