  Entrepreneurial Ecosystems and Creation of High Tech Unicorn Start-ups (REF: SF18/BAM/WHALLEY1)
  Prof J Whalley, Dr J Cunningham
Applications accepted all year round
Entrepreneurial ecosystem research to date has identified a range of actors that contribute to the vibrancy, sustainability, and viability of such ecosystems.
  Siberian summers: detecting the leakage of old carbon from permafrost catchments
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Arctic permafrost soils are large carbon stores capable of driving a positive climate feedback loop as global temperatures rise (Dean et al., 2018a).
  Synthetic Terraformation: engineering biology to counterbalance ecosystems decline
  Dr A Goni-Moreno
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Climate change due to anthropogenic deterioration of the environment puts ecosystems at risk of irreversible collapse.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  New approaches to restoration of aquatic ecosystems – Integrating catchment and coastal processes to increase flood protection in tidally influenced rivers and estuaries
  Prof M Macklin, Dr M Schuerch, Dr L Mao, Dr H Moore
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health – School of Geography. Location. University of Lincoln, UK. Funding. £14,553 per annum stipend, plus all tuition fees covered.
  Mass and energy flow in seafloor ecosystems, testing and tuning deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Deep-sea habitats at water depths over 2000 m cover ~60% of the Earth’s surface and are the largest and least explored environment on the planet (Smith et al.
  The Macroecology of Changing Marine Ecosystems
  Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round
The marine environment covers most of our planet, and is vital for food provision, climate regulation, and biodiversity.
  Disentangling palaeodiet: Modern and archaeological case studies in compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis - QUADRAT
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The nitrogen isotope analysis of individual amino acids represents a potentially powerful tool for estimating trophic positions and the source of dietary protein in archaeological case studies.
  Time travelling as a powerful approach for the screening of biodiversity
  Dr L Orsini, Dr S He, Prof J B Brown
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Eutrophication and climate change are two of the most pressing environmental issues, affecting up to 50% of aquatic ecosystems worldwide.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
