  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Simulating the fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in the Northwest European Shelf ecosystem with a suite of high resolution numerical models
  Dr K O'Driscoll, Prof U Witte
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Introduction/Background. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are chemical substances that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, geological and physical processes.
  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.
  Climate change impacts on subsistence agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa – an exploration using data assimilation with the JULES land surface model
  Dr J Kaduk, Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Climate change is expected to impact African water and food security, sustainable development and economic sustainability (ISS, 2010).
  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round
Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  Natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services – tackling scaling issues
  Dr L Jones
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary PhD will study natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services at a range of scales, to tackle critical questions in ecosystem services research.
  Natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services – tackling scaling issues
  Dr L Jones, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
We are looking for an enthusiastic person to undertake a PhD studying natural capital, biodiversity and ecosystem services at a range of scales.
