  Investigating the cognitive underpinnings, behavioural development and fitness consequences of urban life in herring gulls
  Dr N Boogert, Dr L Kelley, Dr SC Votier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  How do Arctic seabirds coordinate parental care in a changing climate?
  Dr S Patrick, Prof B J Hatchwell
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background – The Arctic is experiencing more rapid climate change than any other ecosystem on earth, with potentially devastating consequences for biodiversity in the region.
  Response of ringed seal populations to environmental change in the Canadian Arctic
  Dr R Jeffreys, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr SC Smout, Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing unprecedented rates of environmental change, warming twice as fast as the global average (Hoegh-Guldberg and Bruno, 2010).
  The Complexity and Structure of Food Web Networks
  Dr A Beckerman, Dr M Pocock
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The complexity and structure of food web networks underpin our understanding of biodiversity and the stability, persistence and functioning of ecological communities.
  The role of lipid-store body condition in the behaviour and reproduction of cetaceans
  Prof P Miller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Body condition, here defined as the quantity of energy stores carried in the fat (lipid) stores of an individual, reflects an integration of metabolic costs and foraging success - but also reflects the reproductive needs of the individual in their life cycle (Miller et al., 2011).
  Can seabirds adapt behaviour to buffer the impacts of offshore renewable energy installations and climate change?
  Dr K Searle, Dr J A Green, Dr F Daunt, Mr J.K. Larsen
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
A critical challenge facing the development of offshore renewable energy installations (OREIs) is their effects on populations of protected species such as seabirds.
  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem.
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter, Dr M Morecroft, Mr M Furness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Experimental Modeling of Optimal Search Strategies with Bioinspired Nanorobots at University College London
  Dr G Volpe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A fully funded PhD studentship is available to work under the supervision of Dr Giorgio Volpe on the experimental development of a model system to study the physics of foraging based on the use of bioinspired nanomachines capable of autonomous movement.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Wild minds: how do apes learn about and use their physical environments?
  Dr J M Chappell, Dr S K Thorpe
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The tropical forest environments in which the great ape species (including humans) evolved are dynamic, complex and challenging. Trees in tropical forests tend to fruit episodically.
