  Supra-specific Janzen-Connell effects: insect herbivores responding to plant phylogeny and chemistry in a Papua New Guinea rainforest
  Prof V Novotny, Dr M. Volf
Application Deadline: 20 February 2019
We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate to join a project exploring plant-herbivore interactions in a lowland rainforest in Papua New Guinea.
  The palaeoenvironmental history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the sub-canopy layers - QUADRAT
  Dr J E Schofield, Dr G Plunket
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD studentship will apply palaeoecological techniques to investigate long-term changes in the composition and dynamics of ancient broadleaved woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, thereby producing information that will guide the conservation and restoration of these vegetation communities.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  Tree mortality and drought: leveraging the power of big data
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  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.
