  Random forests for noisy applications in finance
  Prof J Fliege, Dr E Dodd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the financial and insurance sector, machine learning (ML) challenges usually arise either in a setting where data is contaminated by noise or the model to be learned is of a stochastic nature.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh, Mr M Soh, Dr C L Puan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  Nitrogen controls on ecosystem functioning in neotropical dry forests
  Prof M Rufino, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global agriculture is rapidly expanding in response to the growing demand for food, with ‘agricultural frontiers’, such as dry and fertile lands of the Gran Chaco in South America contributing to this need.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Blue carbon and ecosystem functioning in mangroves under pressure. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr B van Maanen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barend van Maanen, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
