Poaching is a significant challenge around the world. Anti-poaching efforts are always under-funded and under-resourced. Law enforcement officers cannot keep up with a large number of poachers who are trying to kill animals.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Consequences of biases in representation of drivers of change in evidence synthesis for environmental decision-making and stewardship
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler
Applications accepted all year round

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Examining Histoplasmosis in household and community environments at the human-animal interface
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr G Pinchbeck, Dr D Wooton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Little is known about the current prevalence or transmission of Histoplasmosis despite its persistence in Sub-Saharan Africa, representing a public health blind spot (Oladele et al., 2018).
  How does urbanization affect the abundance and diversity of species?
  Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will focus on the influence of human behaviour on the dynamics and behaviour of species in urban and suburban settings. By altering the environment (e.g.
  Statistical models for digital ecological surveys
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecological surveys are the foundation on which evidence-based conservation of the planet’s biodiversity and wildlife resources is built.
  Green cities: how our decisions affect landscape biodiversity
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  Semantic Web Technologies and Linked Data for Internet of Things (Self-Funded Only)
  Research Group: Complex Systems
  Prof O F Rana, Dr C Perera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ultimate goal of Semantic Web is to make the machine to understand the Internet data. To enable the encoding of semantics with the data, well-known technologies are RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL(Web Ontology Language).

  Dr N Garton, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), a devastating disease affecting global cattle populations.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., covid-19, Ebola, pandemic influenza, etc.).
  New methods for removal of pollutants from water
  Dr A Fletcher, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
  Antimicrobial resistance in marine mammals
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses an urgent Global Challenge – the growing widespread incidence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). It will be the first to investigate an unreported alarming concern, that wild seals are dying off from AMR bacterial infections and mortality is greater in more polluted waters.
