  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  YODASLAMS: YOunger DryAs Stadial Landform DynAMicS in Ireland
  Dr R Flood, Dr MS Spagnolo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Rapid climatic changes, as occurred during the Late Glacial, can serve as an analogue for the present. During the Younger Dryas Stadial (Greenland Stadial‐1.
  The palaeoenvironmental history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the sub-canopy layers - QUADRAT
  Dr J E Schofield, Dr G Plunket
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD studentship will apply palaeoecological techniques to investigate long-term changes in the composition and dynamics of ancient broadleaved woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, thereby producing information that will guide the conservation and restoration of these vegetation communities.
  Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  The priming effects of manure on soil physical, chemical and biological properties
  Dr H Roe, Dr Y Arn Teh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Organic manure applications to grassland and arable soils are an important source of nutrients supporting sustainable livestock systems.
  A Comparative Analysis of Public Value Generation in Forensic Services
  Prof K Lasslett, Dr K O'Connor, Dr S Bunyan, Dr D Duffy
Application Deadline: 18 February 2019
Overview. This proposed interdisciplinary doctoral research will attach to a research project led by Ulster University in collaboration with the Forensic Services Leadership Board (FSLB).
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Understanding parallel origins of industrial metal tolerance in Silene uniflora
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Instability in peat: developing and undertaking new types of experiments to establish how peat fails in response to different types of external forcing
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round
Peat mass movements are relatively common geomorphological events in UK and Irish uplands. In recent years several significant peat landslides have been caused by engineering work, usually construction of access roads for onshore windfarm projects.
