  Ecology and evolution of early life on land: arthropod diversity and interactions
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. Dr. Greg Edgecombe FRS, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum,. Dr. Paul Kenrick, Department of Earth Sciences, the Natural History Museum.
  Reconstructing lost worlds – Quaternary continental Ostracoda as tools in geoarchaeology
  Dr P Frenzel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ostracods are one of the main palaeontological proxies in Quaternary continental systems because of their ecological sensitiveness, wide distribution, often high abundance and high diversity.
  How do species interactions determine species ranges?
  Dr R Early, Dr B Kuijper, Dr S White
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).

  Dr P Morris, Dr G Swindles
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The Arctic is experiencing more rapid warming than anywhere else on the planet (Cohen et al., 2014), and this trend is projected to accelerate in coming decades, even under modest emissions scenarios (Collins et al., 2013).
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  PhD funded studentship in ‘Climate variability and disease in early modern eastern England’
  Prof M Macklin, Dr M Hannaford, Dr K Beck
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Climate variability and extreme weather can be a direct or indirect contributor to epidemics.
  SCENARIO: The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer, Dr R Walters
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  Past and present spatial patterning in the newly-discovered peat swamp forest environments of the central Congo Basin
  Dr I Lawson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The aim of this PhD studentship is to contribute to the NERC-funded CongoPeat project, which involves a team from the Universities of Leeds, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Leicester, Nottingham, and Exeter, and many project partners, and which aims to better understand the development, contemporary function and future of the Congo Basin peat swamp forests.
