  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
  Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
  Growing on the edge: The genomic basis of coastal adaptation in eyebrights (Euphrasia)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Twyford, Prof R Ennos
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Local adaptation enables plant populations to survive in extremely harsh environments. Coastal habitats present a suite of challenging conditions characterised by drying oceanic salt spray and osmotically stressful high salinity soils.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration
  Dr A Helden
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.
  Spatial epidemiology in sub-Saharan African wildlife: schistosomes of Cape Buffalo
  Prof J Cable, Dr I-R Russo, Prof M Bruford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animal distributions, including disease vectors and parasites, are influenced by environmental features, which can either facilitate or restrict their movement across the landscape.
  Novel molecular and stable isotope probing approaches to optimizing nitrogen fertiliser use for sustainable agriculture
  Prof RP Evershed
Application Deadline: 29 January 2019
This fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship is a unique opportunity to be part of an interdisciplinary cohort of PhD students tackling one of the most serious issues facing the world today.
  Sustainable management of soil nitrogen-fixing biodiversity in the Andean pasture (DEVEGAUEI19ARIES)
  Dr J De Vega, Dr C Di Maria, Dr S Ferrini
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This proposal targets the Colombian Andean pastures used for livestock grazing in the regions close to Bogota and Cali. The student will evaluate how different farming practices impact soil diversity there, focusing in nitrogen-fixing bacteria (NFB) communities that interact with legume plants.
  Smarter habitat restoration in harmony with species reintroductions – testing solutions for the Chequered Skipper
  Dr J Hodgson, Dr I J Saccheri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2018
Note short deadline - apply now for a great opportunity to inform species recovery while developing quantitative skills!. Habitat loss and degradation remain major threats to species around the world, yet habitat restoration is also enjoying significant success in places.
