  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans: Is there evidence of changes in trophic structure and trait evolution that indicate evolutionary escalation in Mesozoic oceans?
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  Tracing the geological signature of a human-induced transformation of the biosphere in Indonesia
  Prof M Williams, Dr J A Zalasiewicz
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The human impact on the biosphere is profound and has been expressed in terms of species introductions, extirpations and extinctions, command of production, and the ability to modify species and whole ecosystems for human use.
  (BBSRC DTP) Evolution of discrete and continuous morphological characters
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Sansom, Dr R Garwood, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Advances in the acquisition and analysis of genetic sequence data have led to an increasing emphasis and reliance on molecular data to build phylogenies and test models of evolution, yet phenotypic evidence (morphology) remains vital.
  The geochemistry of chert fossils in deep time
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Tartese, Prof R Wogelius, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Chert is a key lithology for the preservation of Precambrian life. These rocks, which are composed primarily of microcrystalline silica, host a myriad of important remains of early life.
