  Constraining the carbon balance of intact tropical forest landscapes
  Dr T Baker, Dr D Galbraith, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Intact tropical forests play a key role in determining the rate of climate change, as they can act as either a significant sink, or potentially source, of carbon.
  The ecology of lightning strikes: How many trees in tropical forests are killed by lightning?
  Dr T Hill, Dr L Rowland, Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve resilience of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity areas, against the backdrop of a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge.
  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.
  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Wood fuel transitions and their impact on tropical ecosystems
  Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
full details here. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/127. About 3 billion people use wood fuels to meet their energy needs, and this accounts for more than half the global wood harvest.
  Understanding temperature adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies
  Dr N Nadeau, Prof J Hill
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
We are seeking an enthusiastic student with interests in ecology, evolution and genetics to work on a project investigating thermal adaptation in tropical Andean butterflies.
  The tangled bank of sexual selection: how the different processes of sexual selection shape evolution in tropical bugs
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr D Shuker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project will explore how different processes of sexual selection interact to shape evolution in species of tropical true bug.
  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.
  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
