  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - Predator-prey interactions under near-future environmental change: The combined effects of increasing temperature and turbidity
  Dr C Ioannou, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
In aquatic habitats, temperature and water turbidity are critical environmental variables that are increasing globally. Substantial effects of turbidity on predator-prey interactions are already known, which are often mediated by changed activity in animals.
  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  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).
  Spatial predator-prey dynamics in the landscape of fear
  Dr J Potts
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
The mathematical study of predator-prey dynamics is one of the oldest subjects in mathematical biology. In a spatial setting, understanding predator-prey interactions is important for a variety of ecological issues, such as maintaining biodiversity and establishing sound conservation principles.
  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.
  Environmental and genomic associations with colour and toxicity: biological insights for newt species of conservation concern
  Dr K Elmer
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Dr. K.R. Elmer, Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine, University of Glasgow,. Prof. O. Gaggiotti, School of Biology, St.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  A Numerical Study of Diffusive Predator-Prey System with Autotaxis and Non-linear Convection
  Dr N Petrovskaya
Applications accepted all year round
This project will apply advanced numerical methods to study a real-world ecological problem of high theoretical and practical importance, such as mechanisms of spatiotemporal pattern formation in ecological communities.
  Impact of mesoscale eddies on the plankton communities of the Polar Frontal zone (TARLINGUBAS19ARIES)
  Prof G Tarling, Dr C Robinson, Prof W Wilson, Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. This PhD will provide the opportunity to study the remote and isolated Southern Ocean. Isolation is believed to make the fauna of the Southern Ocean unique but recent evidence of encroachments of pelagic fauna across the Polar Front challenges this view.
  The role of camouflage in the survival and conservation of ground-nesting birds
  Dr J Troscianko
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
