  Quantifying the value of pollinators in biodiversity conservation (DICKSUBIO19ARIES) [CASE project with Flora and Fauna International]
  Dr L Dicks, Dr R Davies, Dr M Klailova, Dr M Molokwu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Flora and Fauna International. Scientific background. Pollinator decline is an issue of global concern, with a wide range of potential impacts on biodiversity, human society and wellbeing [1,2].
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat Connectivity (FRANCOUENV19ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Prof CD Santos
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Biodiversity loss is one of the major challenges of the Anthropocene and the establishment of robust networks of protected areas is one of the key actions identified to address this challenge.
  Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical environment of the Panama Canal area
  Dr D Buchs, Dr P Renforth
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical climate is key to the formation of soils that constitute a critical zone between the lithosphere and biosphere, are associated with significant geotechnical challenges and could possibly play a significant role in the global carbon budget.
  Climate impacts on terrestrial nomadic birds of the Australian interior
  Dr S G Willis, Dr R Fuller
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. Australia experienced during 2010-11 rainfall of a scale and intensity that was unprecedented in recorded history, driven by the strongest La Niňa weather pattern since 1917.
  Remote and autonomous monitoring of UK shelf sea benthos to assess environmental quality status
  Dr D Jones, Dr J Godbold, Dr V Huvenne
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The UK has implemented over 200 marine protected areas (MPAs), with over 25 million km2 of MPA now designated globally.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round
This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Prestigious Strathclyde/NPL PhD Studentship: Expanding measurement limits of hybrid photonic voltage and current sensors
  Dr P Niewczas, Prof G Burt
Applications accepted all year round
The electricity transmission and distribution networks are undergoing a significant level of transformation because of the massive deployment of renewable energy sources, disrupting the conventional ways the networks are protected, controlled and maintained.
  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.
  The Interactions of Plant, Microbial and Physico-Chemical Controls on Carbon and Nutrient Cycling in the Rhizosphere
  Dr E Paterson, Dr B Thornton, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background; The rhizosphere, directly surrounding roots, is a hotspot of both biological activity, and of physical and chemical transformations, strongly impacting processes such as soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition and nutrient cycling.
  After the gold rush: vertebrate communities in abandoned gold mines and implications for restoration
  Dr J Bicknell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Across Amazonia, small scale gold mining is on the rise (Kalamandeen et al. 2018). Over the last decade, this has led to a sharp increase in localised deforestation.
