  Responsible Investor Engagement on Extinction Prevention
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Accounting and Finance in Context (CRAFiC)
  Prof J Atkins
Applications accepted all year round
Our world is currently experiencing a sixth period of mass species extinction. Current extinction rates are estimated somewhere between a thousand and ten thousand times higher than the ‘natural’ level of extinction.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round
We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  Will natural selection save the Tasmanian devil from extinction?
  Mr R Hamede
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Tasmanian devils are threatened by two fatal transmissible cancers, devil facial tumour disease (DFTD), firstly observed in 1996 and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2), discovered in 2016.
  Modelling temporal changes in biodiversity as a function of land-use change in Indonesia
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Pugh, Dr NE Barrand
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The reported impacts of forest loss and land-use change are almost universally negative, and habitat loss more generally is argued to be the biggest driver of the current extinction crisis (Sala et al., 2000; Haddad et al., 2015).
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  Predicting return on investment of biodiversity conservation measures
  Dr P McGowan
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/. Human-driven changes to the environment have led to predictions that we are entering the sixth mass species extinction event.
  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.
  SCENARIO: Hominin dispersal, climate and encephalization
  Dr C Venditti, Dr JS Singarayer, Prof M Pagel, Prof S Harrison
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Modern humans arose in Africa around 200,000 years ago and subsequently migrated out of Africa eventually to occupy the entire world – the only Hominin species in an evolutionary lineage that is ~7 million years old to have done so.
  Oceanic island museomics: human impact and the natural laboratory paradigm
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Testing the assumptions of the natural laboratory paradigm – the idea that islands are ideal model systems for studying evolution.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
