  Climate change and Arctic wildlife: consequences for human-wildlife interactions & ecosystem services
  Dr S G Willis, Dr S Street, Dr A Lehikoinen
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The Arctic environment is rapidly changing, with impacts on Arctic livelihoods associated with the natural world being poorly understood.
  HDR Scholarship - Wildlife to Wellbeing; the multiple values of citizen science and new technology. A unique cross-disciplinary PhD opportunity
  Prof D Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Biodiversity, including our native plants and animals, faces many threats, with many species undergoing severe declines. Arresting these declines requires up-to-date knowledge of changes in biodiversity and a solid engagement of society with nature.
  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.

  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship – Evidence based decision making for reintroduction success: translocating threatened prey reptiles into an endemic predator-packed system in Mauritius
  Dr R McCrea
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This studentship will be based in the Institute of Zoology, London and will be affiliated with the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Kent.
  Spatial epidemiology in sub-Saharan African wildlife: schistosomes of Cape Buffalo
  Prof J Cable, Dr I-R Russo, Prof M Bruford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animal distributions, including disease vectors and parasites, are influenced by environmental features, which can either facilitate or restrict their movement across the landscape.
  Drone Ecology: robust methods for wildlife research using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
  Dr M Wood, Mr N Entwistle
Applications accepted all year round
Terrestrial ecological surveys generally require ecologists to be present in the environment. For large environments or those with restricted access, ecologists have used helicopters or light aircraft to undertake aerial surveys.
  The validation of ecological citizen science data
  Dr P Stephens, Mr D Roy, Dr J Judge, Dr G Smith
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Citizen science approaches to wildlife monitoring are growing in scope, scale and prevalence. Long-running examples such as the Pan-European Common Birds Monitoring Scheme, and the UK’s Butterfly Monitoring Scheme show the important impact that these approaches can have on both science and monitoring.
  Interactions between environmental change and exploitation on tropical mammal megafauna
  Dr M Struebig
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
An extinction crisis looms in Southeast Asia. While habitat loss and climate change are renowned threats to tropical biodiversity (Struebig 2015), many species are also hunted or persecuted.
