  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  ONE Planet DTP - Quantifying the importance of tree floral resources for pollinators in urban landscapes (Ref: OP20273)
  Dr K Baldock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Urban expansion is one of the main threats to global biodiversity, with 70% of the global human population predicted to be living in urban areas by 2050.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
  Wider benefits of the National Pollinator Strategy
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  QUADRAT DTP: Greening cities: how do street trees contribute to urban biodiversity and ecosystem functions?
  Dr P Caplat, Prof D Burslem, Prof G Keeffe
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will investigate the role of an iconic but poorly studied system (street trees) for enhancing urban biodiversity and support ecosystem functions (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Conservation implications of variation in reproductive traits among fragmented populations of tropical forest trees
  Prof D Burslem, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The persistence of plant populations in fragmented landscapes is dependent on adequate gene flow via seed and pollen dispersal.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Enhancing the sustainability and improving quality of apple production through ecosystem service management
  Dr M Garratt, Dr P Burgess, Dr M Fountain
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. One of the main sustainability challenges faced by farmers today is effectively managing crop pests.
  ONE Planet DTP - SUPER: Sustainable Urban beekeeping – what role do honeybees play in urban Pollinator Ecosystems and Resilience. (Ref: OP20315)
  Dr M Pound
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, pollinating insects are showing a biodiversity decline. This phenomenon has been linked to a number of environmental issues including pesticides, land-use and urbanisation.
  Landscape epidemiology: understanding real world disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – across landscapes is poorly understood.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The magnetic sense of bees: mechanism, function and vulnerability to electromagnetic noise
  Dr R Holland, Dr P Cross
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three year PhD research studentship investigating the magnetic sense in bees and the impact of electromagnetic noise on their behaviour.
  Does crop diversification influence the physical and chemical traits that attract pests and beneficial insects?
  Prof J Koricheva
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop diversification strategies such as intercropping and agroforestry are increasingly promoted as a means to enhance the sustainability of agriculture and ensure a stable food supply.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  QUADRAT DTP: Functional parasite epigenomics and transcriptomics for improving honey-bee health in a global pollination crisis
  Dr M Wenzel, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pollination is an immensely important ecosystem service that not only contributes to maintaining biodiversity in wild ecosystems but is also indispensable for meeting ever-increasing demands on agriculture to sustain global food security.
  ONE Planet DTP - Understanding and mitigating the impacts of light pollution on nocturnal pollination processes in the Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot (OP20294)
  Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Moths are important but overlooked pollinators. There is growing evidence that ALAN affects moth-pollination interactions in northern Europe (e.g.
