  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of forests in Europe are managed and underwent considerable changes in tree species richness, species composition and genetic diversity over the last few centuries.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round
Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
  Development of a Model Based Systems Engineering Framework / Ecosystem to Support “Resilience Engineering” for Complex Automotive Systems
  Research Group: Automotive Research Centre‌
  Prof F Campean
Applications accepted all year round
The design paradigm for automotive systems faces significant challenges from the evolution towards the vision of the future car as a mobile smart device that is substantively defined by its symbiotic interaction and integration with its environment, supporting increased levels of autonomy as well as user-centric service innovation.
  Metaproteomics Approaches to Uncover Ecosystem Function in Aquatic Environments
  Dr J Pandhal, Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round
Recently, it has become increasingly apparent that quantifying the molecular cellular components (e.g. DNA, mRNA, proteins and metabolites) in environmental samples can reveal significant information on ecosystem function.
  Establishing influence of light fields and photophysiology parameterization on the performance of coupled physical ecosystem models of quantity and timing of primary production in the Barents Sea
  Dr D McKee
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Arctic seas are warming faster than any other part of the global ocean with rapid changes in ice cover fundamentally altering coupling between physical, chemical and biological processes.
  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro- and Micro-plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function
  Dr E Pagaling, Prof L Dawson, Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  Solar photovoltaic and environment interactions: developing understanding and embedding co-benefits into the low carbon energy transition
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 18 April 2019
Decarbonisation of energy supplies is triggering notable land use change across the world. To date there is relatively limited understanding of the consequences of this land use change yet considerable opportunity to embed ecosystem co-benefits.
  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.
