  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Global change effects on boreal forests: how will boreal ecosystems respond to climate warming?
  Prof M Williams, Dr L Street, Dr I Myers-Smith
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
This project will test whether boreal latitudes are undergoing tipping point transitions that restructure ecosystems due to warming and feedbacks between nutrient cycling and vegetation.
  Re-evaluating the Role of Drylands in the Global Carbon Budget
  Dr Alan Grainger
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Re-evaluating the Role of Drylands in the Global Carbon Budget. Dr Alan Grainger. Contact email. [email protected] Introduction.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr D Parker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
SUMMARY. The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how isdiapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Tracking the ancient Indian monsoon: investigating the geochemistry of deep-sea sediments from the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea
  Dr K Littler, Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Prof R Pancost, Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Constraining the carbon balance of intact tropical forest landscapes
  Dr T Baker, Dr D Galbraith, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Intact tropical forests play a key role in determining the rate of climate change, as they can act as either a significant sink, or potentially source, of carbon.
  Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others?
  Dr R Brienen, Prof E Gloor, Dr D Galbraith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others? A study on the functional linkage of tree hydraulics and their sensitivity to climate.
  Tropical land-use change and regional climate
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
Rapid deforestation and degradation are occurring across the tropics. This land-use change impacts the surface energy balance, water and carbon cycles through changes to land-surface properties and through smoke emitted by forest and vegetation fires (Spracklen et al., 2018).
