  Multi-disciplinary connectivity investigation of Priority Marine Features in Scottish waters using bio-physical modelling and population genomics
  Dr C S Jones, Dr B Rabe
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are designated for the protection and conservation of a range of species and habitats.
  Environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring for invasive non-native species to protect marine biodiversity
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney, Dr W G Sanderson, Dr I Matejusova
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
European oyster (Ostrea edulis) beds were once extensive and wide-spread but are now rare and threatened biodiversity hot-spots. They are important nursery and foraging habitats for many fish and invertebrates and also act to stabilise the seabed and prevent coastal erosion.
  The implications of spatial and temporal variation in marine biodiversity of demersal species for community ecology, marine policy and the Scottish fishing industry
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr T Miethe
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
In the North Sea, spatial patterns in biodiversity have been identified for demersal fish, epibenthic invertebrates and infauna. For the fish community, species richness exhibits peaks the northern North Sea and in Scottish waters (Reiss et al.
  Long-term temporal dynamics of a migrant bird assemblage
  Prof J Reid, Prof A Magurran, Dr M Dornelas
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Highlights. This fully-funded PhD project provides an exciting opportunity for a highly-motivated student to utilise an outstanding 60-year dataset to quantify how compositions of migrant bird assemblages have changed over time, thereby addressing questions at the forefront of biodiversity research.
  Isotopes and ecohydrological models for sustainable urban water management - LEVERHULME
  Prof C Soulsby
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Urbanisation is one of the major global drivers of land use change, and sustainably managing urban water is one of the key environmental challenges of the 21st Century.
  Optimising the long term control of invasive American mink in Patagonia to protect livelihoods and native biodiversity
  Prof X Lambin, Prof J Travis, Dr E Raffo, Dr I Rodríguez-Jorquera
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
A large number of highly damaging invasive non-native species (INNS) have become established worldwide and the problem is particularly acute in southern South America where many INNS are now so widespread that eradication is not an option.
  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
