  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Quantifying the role of forest disturbance regimes in macroecology and carbon cycling
  Dr T Pugh, Dr E Marais
Applications accepted all year round
big advances in assessing the frequency with which forests are impacted by large disturbances worldwide (Hansen et al., 2014), but in many ecosystems small-medium-sized disturbances may be much more important (Espirito-Santo et al., 2014).
  The role of forest demography in controlling the terrestrial carbon sink
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Forest demography, that is the establishment and mortality rates of trees, and the structure of that vegetation within forests, is a fundamental factor underlying the function of a forest and the services it provides.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Developing and testing models for the assessment of fish and scallops in the Clyde
  Dr D C Speirs, Prof M Heath, Dr P Boulcott
Applications accepted all year round
This fully-funded studentship will remain open only until filled, and so we recommend applying immediately. Mathematical models play a central role in determining the population size of fish and other marine organisms that are caught for human consumption.
