  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  The changing nature of Antarctic food webs
  Dr E O'Gorman, Dr S Hill, Dr M Taylor, Dr P Hollyman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Marine ecosystems around Antarctica are characterised by high numbers of penguins, seals, whales, and their common prey, krill.
  Predicting the dynamics of community biomass and size distributions in freshwater communities exposed to long-term warming. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)

  Trophic cascades resulting from the re-introduction of island birds
  Dr K C Burns
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half of the avifauna of New Zealand has been driven to extinction following the arrival of humans. Most of what remains is restricted to predator-free offshore islands.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
