Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend one year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (and a year to write-up) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  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
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The effects of light pollution on navigating animals
  Prof N W Roberts
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Both insect and spider biodiversity are decreasing worldwide. While their terrestrial ecosystems are being damaged by numerous human activities such as agricultural intensification, urbanization, and climate change, sensory pollutants such as light and sound are further intensifying population declines.
