  Fusion Forest : Numerical Modelling of Air Flow in Forests to Secure Disease Resilience through Pattern Variability
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Highlights. Funded by the Global Challenges Scholarships of the University of Birmingham. Transdisciplinary research project. Using in-house, state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  Fronds to forests: Individual-based and whole-forest models of kelp
  Prof M Heath, Dr D C Speirs
Applications accepted all year round
This fully-funded 3.5 year studentship will remain open only until filled, but the preferred interview time is in middle March. So we recommend applying immediately.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of forests in Europe are managed and underwent considerable changes in tree species richness, species composition and genetic diversity over the last few centuries.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Machine Learning for prediction in Alzheimer’s Disease: Identifying novel biologically valid diagnostic categories to inform precision medicine
  Prof V Escott-Price
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Employing machine learning (ML) algorithms is a promising way of exploring the complex architecture of big data in genetics. Several methods exist for solving classification problems like case-control and outcome groups in ML.
  Fusion Forest : securing disease resilience through pattern variability
  Research Group: Climate change
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Highlights. Funded by the Global Challenges Scholarships of the University of Birmingham. Transdisciplinary research project. Using in-house, state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.

  The role of forest demography in controlling the terrestrial carbon sink
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Forest demography, that is the establishment and mortality rates of trees, and the structure of that vegetation within forests, is a fundamental factor underlying the function of a forest and the services it provides.
  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
