  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.
  Effect of oxidative stress on the biochemistry of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-lyase enzymes in tropical reef organisms - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD
  Dr M Steinke, Dr M Hough, Dr J Worrall
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Rationale. Tropical coral reefs are a substantial source of the climate-cooling gas dimethyl sulfide (DMS). The major precursor of DMS is the secondary metabolite dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that is biosynthesised to high concentrations in symbiotic dinoflagellates of the tropical genus Symbiodinium [1].
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round
During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species.
