  Atlantic woodland health: long-term interactions between climate, ecology and management
  Dr E Tisdall, Dr A Davies, Dr R Streeter
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Forest health is a growing, international concern, with most attention focused on climatic drivers and regions with large tracts of forest cover.
  Seeing the woods for the trees: do woodland networks benefit biodiversity?
  Prof K Park, Prof J Bullock, Dr Elisa Fuentes-Montemayor, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. The concept of ecological networks, and their focus on landscape-scale conservation, has been promoted globally as a key approach to biodiversity conservation in fragmented landscapes.
  Woodland insect responses to climate change
  Dr S Hayward, Dr J P Sadler, Dr C Pfrang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Forest/woodland systems are major source of biodiversity globally and also play a crucial role in carbon capture/mitigating against rising CO2 levels.
  SCENARIO: Roles of woodland birds in the transmission of emerging tree diseases
  Dr G Barrett, Dr R Broughton, Dr K Schönrogge, Prof R W Jackson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ecologically important tree species in the UK are facing increased threats from invasive pests and pathogens, spurred on by climate change and globalization.
  The palaeoenvironmental history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the sub-canopy layers - QUADRAT
  Dr J E Schofield, Dr G Plunket
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD studentship will apply palaeoecological techniques to investigate long-term changes in the composition and dynamics of ancient broadleaved woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, thereby producing information that will guide the conservation and restoration of these vegetation communities.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Prof M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  SCENARIO: Evaluating the impact of woodland management and drinking water abstraction on groundwater-fed wetlands
  Dr J Clark, Prof A Verhoef, Dr D Macdonald, Ms D Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Healthy, well-functioning natural wetlands are critically important, yet the world is rapidly losing these important habitats due to anthropogenic pressures (Ramsar Convention on Wetlands 2018).
  Future Climate: Future Pollen and Spores
  Dr F Pope
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Globally, atmospheric CO2 concentrations are rising because of anthropogenic activity. They will continue to rise in the coming century.
  Managing resilience of a temperate forest to future climate change with a nutrient bent
  Dr Z Shi, Dr T Pugh
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
More than a quarter of recent anthropogenic CO2 emissions are absorbed by forests. This is primarily attributed to enhanced plant growth as a result of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration (eCO2).
  PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) – Geography
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is home to a large and diverse group of disciplines with a track record of excellence in research, much of which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
