  Dr M Thomas, Dr A Abellan
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The loading that results from ash fall following volcanic eruptions can pose a significant problem to the structural integrity of buildings.
  Oceanic island museomics: human impact and the natural laboratory paradigm
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Testing the assumptions of the natural laboratory paradigm – the idea that islands are ideal model systems for studying evolution.
  Adaptations to life at high altitude in Canary Island bats
  Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Global climate change is predicted to result in species shifting their ranges up latitudinal and altitudinal gradients to track suitable climatic conditions.
  Variability in circulation and exchange in a sub-Antarctic island fjord
  Dr E Young, Dr I Haigh
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia lies at the northern boundary of the Scotia Sea in the path of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.

  Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Global climate change is predicted to result in species shifting their ranges up latitudinal and altitudinal gradients to track suitable climatic conditions.
  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship – Evidence based decision making for reintroduction success: translocating threatened prey reptiles into an endemic predator-packed system in Mauritius
  Dr R McCrea
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This studentship will be based in the Institute of Zoology, London and will be affiliated with the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Kent.
  People, forest use and biodiversity on islands: models for global sustainability
  Dr M Dallimer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Small island states comprise some of the world’s poorest countries and are often home to extraordinary levels of endemic biodiversity at substantial risk of extinction.
  Natural adaptive capability of coral reef islands to sea-level rise and implications for future human occupation (MASSELINKP19ARIES)
  Prof G Masselink
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. It is a widespread expectation that sea-level rise will drown low-lying islands formed on coral reef platforms and that increased flooding will render them uninhabitable within the coming decades.
  Dehydrating on a Greek island: corundum formation in relation to fluid flow and deformation on Naxos
  Prof J Wheeler, Dr E Mariani, Dr J Urai
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Dehydration reactions are fundamental to how the Earth works, and how H2O is carried around bound into minerals. During dehydration, bound H2O is given off in reactions which are often complex and involve a number of minerals.
  The toxic challenge: how do we control mosquito populations responsibly in small tropical island ecosystems?
  Dr R Gill, Dr L Cator, Dr A Burt
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
The use of chemical insecticides to control insect pest species is the most adopted strategy across the globe.
