  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Recreating the South Orkney Ice Cap: a sentinel of Antarctic Ice Sheet change?
  Dr K Hogan, Dr S Jamieson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The South Orkney Plateau (SOP) micro-continent lies in a unique oceanographic position between deep, cold ocean currents formed in the Weddell Sea and the dominant Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC).
  Do plants always have to behave that way? Understanding the evolution of root behaviour and its effects on fitness in flowering plants on Mount Etna, Sicily
  Dr J Bridle, Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental issue in biology is understanding how.
  ONE Planet DTP - Predicting farm profitability under future climate and market uncertainty. (OP20272)
  Dr F Areal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. The PhD project will develop a farmer behaviour predictive model to investigate the implications that 1) climate change events (e.g.
  Use of remote sensing data to develop behavioural profiles for global change scenarios
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Habitat loss, human encroachment and climate change are affecting biodiversity globally. Understanding how species can survive under increasingly adverse conditions will be key to protecting their persistence.
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Research Masters. KESS2 Scholarship:A hydrological modelling toolkit to enhance flood management and infrastructure decisions in Gwynedd County, Wales
  Dr S Patil
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood risk mitigation is a major societal challenge and will be increasingly important in the future due to climate change threats.
  Pathways to Realistic Impact Modelling in Estuarine Areas (PRIMEA)
  Dr P Robins, Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Estuaries connect terrestrial and marine environments, providing one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Complex land-sea interactions combined with intensive land-use and land-value mean that they are at heightened risk from flooding and poor health.
  Life cycle assessment of current and future passenger transport technologies in the UK
  Dr S Parsons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the coming years, the electric powertrain is expected to replace fossil fuelled vehicles. From an environmental perspective, there are still many uncertainties when assessing the potential life cycle impacts of future powertrain technologies.
  Native and invasive ladybirds in a changing UK climate (PERRYUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Perry, Dr H Roy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
  Understanding Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr A Le Brocq
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Anne Le Brocq, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter,. Additional Supervisors.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  Catastrophic change to Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr C Xuan, Prof P Wilson, Dr G Hellio
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
  QUADRAT DTP: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
