  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.
  Why you aren’t always what you eat: Exploring the influence of dietary macro-nutrient composition on diet-tissue 15N-enrichment and the implications for palaeodietary reconstruction.
  Dr K Britton, Prof J Speakman
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
The stable isotope analysis of preserved human and animal tissues is a major methodological approach employed by archaeological scientists for the reconstruction of past diets.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
