  Taxonomy and biogeography of the world’s largest ecosystem based on combined morphological and molecular studies of amphipods
  Dr T Horton, Dr A Glover
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Recent years have seen increased expeditions to survey and sample the Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ), in the central Pacific Ocean, driven by commercial interests in the potential extraction of polymetallic nodules in the region (Glover et al., 2015).
  A taxonomy of cities - using urban typologies to understand the infrastructural dynamics of the UK heat supply
  Dr E Mohareb, Dr P Coker, Dr D Perrotti
Applications accepted all year round
The School of the Built Environment is currently increasing its research capacity associated with urban scale sustainability.
  Evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the early cerapodan dinosaurs
  Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cerapodans are a major group of herbivorous bipedal and quadrupedal ornithischian dinosaurs that dominated the terrestrial herbivorous niche during the Cretaceous.
  Quantitative evaluation of creativity using computational semantics
  Dr R Setchi
Applications accepted all year round
Start Dates. Either. 1st October 2018, 1st January 2019, 1st April 2019 and 1st July 2019. Background. Creativity is regarded as one of the most desirable qualities; it involves divergent and convergent thinking.
  The origin of Antarctic ice shelf fauna, the timing of its emergence and the demographic stability of the fauna over time
  Dr A Glover, Dr J Copley
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. The objective is to study the taxonomy, biodiversity, phylogeography and population genetic patterns of under-ice shelf fauna with a focus on polychaetes.
  Do cryptic species matter? Investigating the ecological differences between earthworm cryptic species
  Prof M Hodson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The omics revolution has transformed the world of taxonomy. Almost over night, organisms that were once considered to be the same species on the basis of their morphology have been grouped into different cryptic species with significantly different genetics.
  MRes in Understanding the drivers of biodiversity potential in urban ponds
  Dr R Briers, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Urban freshwater ecosystems are similarly often characterised as impacted and with limited biological life. Throughout the last century however, urban water quality has been improving, with concomitant changes in biological diversity.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  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.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
