  The ecological impacts of an aggressive aquatic invader: is Crassula helmsii the biggest threat to European freshwater biodiversity?
  Prof D Bilton, Dr A Foggo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological invasions represent one of the most significant threats to biodiversity on the planet. Freshwaters are both disproportionately affected by such invasions, and home to a disproportionately large proportion of biodiversity, especially invertebrates.
  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.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cryptosporidium movement in water- impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  Using genomic data of sponges to reveal patterns of genetic diversity and connectivity in the Mediterranean Sea
  Dr A Riesgo, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Understanding the genetic diversity and connectivity patterns of marine invertebrates and how they adapt to their local environments is vital to design conservation strategies.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  Green cities: how our decisions affect landscape biodiversity
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Artificial skyglow impacts on the chronobiology of marine organisms
  Dr A Ellison, Dr S Jenkins
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecological impact of artificial light at night has been a rapidly growing field of global change science in recent years.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Competition amongst endemic lizard species on a tropical island (Round Island, Mauritius)
  Prof W Symondson, Dr I Vaughan, Dr P Orozco Ter Wengel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Round Island, Mauritius, hosts a community of rare endemic lizard species. Their environment was cleared of most vegetation by introduced goats and rabbits (now eliminated).
  Rewilding trajectories: how important are the early years?
  Dr A Bush, Dr S Smart
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
