  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  PhD Studentship: Crack behaviour in a residual stress field at fillet welds in ship structures (NSIRC247)
  Mr G Wu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Welding residual stresses are complex in fillet welds used to join longitudinal stiffened plate at the bottom of ship structures that are exposed to complex cyclic loads.
  Objectively measured physical activity and sedentary behaviour before and after exercise-based rehabilitation
  Dr R Meiring, Dr S Gusso
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following significant health events, exercise rehabilitation is recommended to patients to reduce the risk of secondary events. These patients, by definition, meet current guidelines of exercise required for the maintenance of cardiovascular health but long-term adherence to exercise rehabilitation is poor.
  Can understanding people’s mental models of cybersecurity improve security behaviour?
  Prof Adam Joinson, Dr J Hinds
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project based in the School of Management under the supervision of Professor Adam Joinson (https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/adam-joinson) and Dr Joanne Hinds (https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/joanne-hinds).
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Approach – Avoidance foraging; a novel and ethological rodent assay to evaluate anxiety-like behaviour and the brain networks that support it
  Dr R Apps, Dr B Lumb, Dr C Lawrenson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend one year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (and a year to write-up) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Choice architecture: nudging food choice behaviour
  Dr H Ensaff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Choice architecture, the presentation and framing of a choice and its influence on subsequent decision-making behaviour, is well established.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Plastic in rivers: transport, behaviour and fate (CENTA2-SGGE16-GABB)
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr C Russell, Prof S Rice
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rivers feed the world’s oceans with freshwater, sediment and more recently with large quantities of plastic. Estimates of the amount of plastic entering the environment via fluvial systems are challenging to constrain and range from 4.8-12.7 million tonnes in 2010 (Jambeck et al., 2015).
  Defined outcomes from chaotic directions – The influence of random nanoscale mechanical stress on cancer cell behaviour and drug resistance
  Dr M Zelzer, Dr A Piccinini
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite you to apply for an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD project at the interface of material science, engineering, cancer cell biology and mathematic modelling.

  Prof B Rossi, Prof Z You
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5-year D.Phil. studentship. Project. Behaviour Of Perforated Stainless Steel Plated Structures. Stainless steel has mechanical characteristics (in terms of strength and ductility) reasonably similar to traditional carbon steel equivalents.
  Can Virtual Reality help motivate and support marginalised young people to reduce risky behaviour?
  Dr C Nee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD or four year Masters and PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The studentship is funded by the ESRC South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP), a collaboration between the universities of Portsmouth, Southampton and Brighton.
  Social behaviour and population biology in birds
  Prof B J Hatchwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on earth is fundamentally dependent on cooperative interactions among biological units. These social interactions may take the form of cooperation among genes or cells within organisms, between individuals within cooperative societies, or, in human societies, cooperation at an international or global scale.
  Heterogeneity in the development of antisocial behaviour
  Dr R Rowe, Dr CB Stride
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antisocial behaviour is a very wide-ranging term including fighting, stealing temper tantrums and callousness among many other things.
  Behavioural and brain mechanisms of social decision-making
  Dr P Lockwood, Dr J Galea, Dr S De Brito
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The social decision neuroscience lab (www.sdn-lab.org) is offering a competitively funded project examining the fundamental behavioural, computational and neural mechanisms of social decision-making in humans.
  How and why is deformation localised in continental crust?
  Dr S Piazolo, Prof T Wright, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will collect and use geological field investigations of the exhumed lower crust to constrain models of strain localisation, and compare these against modern geodetic data from the India-Asia collision.
