  A species under threat - Genomic and phenotypic responses in the European eel to aquatic toxins
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is currently under catastrophic decline across most of its range, the reasons for this remain elusive.
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Community assembly processes of soil ammonia oxidisers under different nitrogen use efficiency strategies
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microbial communities mediate important global biogeochemical cycles and a better understanding of the mechanisms of community assembly is therefore important.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  The socioecological drivers of tourist decisions and their influence on wildlife tourism sustainability
  Dr D Lusseau, Dr S Cerroni
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
An ever-increasing number of people use nature for recreation and tourism across all ecoregions. Those activities now threaten the conservation of 5930 species and marine coastal regions are particularly affected (Lusseau & Mancini 2018).
  Towards integrated adaptive management of an endangered elasmobranch in the North East Atlantic.
  Dr C S Jones, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Increasing use is made of marine protected areas (MPAs) to locally manage and conserve marine biodiversity. Although highly mobile, with complex temporal and spatial movement patterns, many endangered elasmobranchs show site association to critical habitats at important life history stages.
  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
