  Native and Invasive Ladybirds in a Changing U.K. Climate
  Dr J Perry, Dr A Salisbury
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
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.
  The impact of forest roads on the rate of biological invasion
  Dr N Petrovskaya
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Roads can play an important role in the spread of invasive plant species by serving as corridors for movement as well as providing prime habitat for establishment (see reference [1]).
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of both native and non-native marine invasive species.
  One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish: biotic interactions of native and invasive mosquitofish with their environment.
  Dr R Riesch, Prof M Brown
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Invasive alien species are a key global threat to healthy ecosystems, yet we still have only a poor understanding of the different levels on which they interact with their environment.
  Predicting the Unpredictable: the role of eco-evolutionary experience in species interactions across taxa and habitats
  Prof J Dick, Prof XL Lambin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Jaimie Dick of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Professor Xavier Lambin of the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  The Asian date mussel: understanding a new and severe threat to Europe’s benthic habitats and blue economies
  Dr G J Watson, Dr P Stebbing, Dr S Mitchell
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Biological Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Gordon Watson, Dr Paul Stebbing (Programme Manager for Aquatic Non-native Species Research, CEFAS) and Dr Steve Mitchell.
  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.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Re-thinking insect adaptation to Antarctica’s extreme environments
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Antarctica has been isolated from the other Southern Hemisphere continents for at least 28 million years (Myr). Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice.
  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
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.
