  Predicting the Unpredictable: the role of eco-evolutionary experience in species interactions across taxa and habitats
  Prof J Dick, Prof XL Lambin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Jaimie Dick of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Professor Xavier Lambin of the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  The Asian date mussel: understanding a new and severe threat to Europe’s benthic habitats and blue economies
  Dr G J Watson, Dr P Stebbing, Dr S Mitchell
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Biological Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Gordon Watson, Dr Paul Stebbing (Programme Manager for Aquatic Non-native Species Research, CEFAS) and Dr Steve Mitchell.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  (MERI) Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  Species identification of compromised bone: An analytical study
  Dr C E Greenwood
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Anthropologists are often asked to identify human bone within forensic and mass disaster cases, where in many instances the bone has been compromised through thermal alteration, or diagenetic processes (archaeological bone).
  Combating Illegal Trade in Animal Products by Rapid On-Site DNA Sequencing
  Prof M A Jobling, Dr C A May
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Illegal trading in animal products is commonplace, widespread and diverse, ranging from trafficking high-value, CITES-protected, endangered species between countries, fraudulent misidentification of by-catch fish filleted at sea (estimated at ~25%), through to substitution of low-value meat from one species into foodstuffs advertised as containing another (e.g.
  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) Multi-omics Approach to Monitoring Marine Bycatch
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr M Buckley, Dr H Shiels, Dr C Walton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The sustainability of fish within Europe is becoming an increasing concern, with overfishing creating a depletion of fish stocks below maintainable limits.
  Native and Invasive Ladybirds in a Changing U.K. Climate
  Dr J Perry, Dr A Salisbury
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
