  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round
Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  Exploring a natural capital approach in the Upper Mersey Estuary for improved decision making and investment in the environment.
  Dr C Bowe
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
A fully funded PhD studentship has been made available at the School of Natural Sciences and Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University.
  Developing Risk-Based Approaches to Modelling Phosphorus Contamination in Agricultural Catchments
  Dr M Glendell, Prof A J Wade, Dr P-E Mellander, Dr N Schurch
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Phosphorus (P) pollution remains a major cause of surface water quality failures under the Water Framework Directive. Abating P pollution in agricultural catchments requires informed decisions about the likely effectiveness of land management mitigation measures and their spatial targeting.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
  Assessing the ecological vulnerability of natural defences and risks to agricultural land following seawater flooding
  Prof R Thompson, Dr M Hanley
Application Deadline: 26 March 2019
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  Funded PhD Studentship: Analysing energy and resources use under different climate scenarios in a circular economy for islands
  Dr C Spataru
Application Deadline: 27 April 2019
Geographical islands suffer from several barriers, most of them relying on oil imports, exposing them to the volatility of international markets.
  Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), Erasmus University Rotterdam
