  Invasive species and water resources: developing the evidence base for effective mitigation to prevent the spread of invasive non-native species through water transfer networks
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A M Dunn, Prof M Tillotson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) cost the UK over £2bn pa and are an increasing threat to aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems.
  Native and invasive ladybirds in a changing UK climate (PERRYUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Perry, Dr H Roy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Validating environmental DNA as a powerful and cost-effective monitoring tool for declining, elusive and invasive mammals
  Dr A McDevitt
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Academic Supervisor. Dr Allan McDevitt (University of Salford). Academic Co-Supervisors. Dr Erinma Ochu (University of Salford), Prof.
  Boundary conditions for non-local operators and their numerical implementation and applications
  Assoc Prof B Baeumer
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-local differential operators are a common mathematical tool to spatially model the risk of spread of an invasive species, an epidemic, or any other system where the outliers dominate the dynamics of spread.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species.
  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
