  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  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.
  The global ecology of livestock domestication
  Prof C P Osborne, Dr G Thomas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The domestication of livestock and crops ~10,000 years ago transformed human subsistence and rank among the most important evolutionary events in our history.
  The Macroecology of Changing Marine Ecosystems
  Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The marine environment covers most of our planet, and is vital for food provision, climate regulation, and biodiversity.
  Micro/Milli-Robots and Systems: developing mechanisms and systems that supports sensing and action of micro/milli-robots
  Dr S Miyashita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent rapid development on Milli and Microscale robotics has provided a massive impact on palm-top autonomy that are applicable to various fields.

  Dr A Tsakiridis, Dr Dan Bose
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding DNA regulatory elements or enhancers control tissue and region-specific expression of critical developmental regulators thus playing a crucial role in the correct formation of the embryonic body.
