  Uptake and impact of microplastics on native and invasive amphipods
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A M Dunn, Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Microplastics are tiny plastic fragments which originate from the decomposition of plastic products such as bottles and textiles or which are intentionally used in other products including cosmetics.
  Sedimentation and invasive species in rivers: Investigation in trialling of mitigation options relevant to invasive non-native species sediment inputs to rivers
  Dr M Klaar, Dr M Smith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Invasive non-native species (INNS) such as Himalayan Balsam and Signal Crayfish are known to cause increased sediment erosion in river ecosystems.
  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  Mitigating the effects of climate change, emerging disease and invasive species on native amphibian populations in the UK (PUSCHENDORFP19ARIES)
  Dr R Puschendorf
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Project description. Amphibians are the most threatened group of vertebrates, with global declines driven by and associated with emerging infectious disease, invasive species and climate change (North et al.
  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Understanding invasive plant-native animal interactions in São Paulo State, Brazil.
  Dr W Dawson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
In Brazil, white ginger (Hedychium coronarium) is a widespread invasive plant in riparian and wetland areas, including in the Atlantic Forest biodiversity hotspot, where it has the potential to transform ecological communities and hydrology in this important water catchment.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Reducing the environmental impact of controlling invasive rodent pests
  Prof JL Hurst, Prof P Stockley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Rodents play important roles in many ecosystems, influencing habitat structure and plant diversity, and providing an important food source for many predators.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing non-invasive imaging strategies to investigate the effect of kidney disease on cardiovascular health and assess the ameliorative effect of a regenerative medicine therapy
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  The evolutionary ecology of dispersal in invading populations (SPURGINUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This exciting studentship addresses a fundamental scientific question. how do genes and the environment influence patterns of dispersal within and among populations? Answering this question is essential if we are to manage invasive species and crop pests.
