  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social animals? (BOURKEUBIO20ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  Calling in the wilderness: the use of Passive Acoustic Monitoring in biodiversity surveys (NEWSONUBTO20ARIES)
  Dr S Newson, Dr B Milner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. By 2020, the BTO will be in its second year of an exciting 5-year landscape restoration program in Belarus and Ukraine – ‘Wilderness without borders.
  A new approach to modelling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV20ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
  Developing ecological solutions to plastic pollution (COLEUPML20ARIES)
  Dr M Cole, Dr T Tolhurst
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Microplastic debris is a prolific environmental contaminant, impacting on marine ecosystems across the globe.

  Dr A Bond, Dr A Franco
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. We live in an era characterised by the global impact of humans on the planet. The biodiversity consequences are well known and it is critical to devise strategies to prevent further biodiversity loss and to maximise the delivery of ecosystem services.
  How does Emiliania huxleyi invade polar oceans? (MOCKUENV20ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Emiliania huxleyi (Ehux) is a dominant species of coccolithophores, which are calcifying microalgae that have influenced global climate for millions of years.
  Life and Environment During Rapid Climatic Warming 56 million Years Ago: A Geological Analogue for the Future (PEDENTCHOUKUENV20ARIES)
  Dr N Pedentchouk, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RATIONALE AND SIGNIFICANCE. One of the most extreme global warming events in the geologic past took place at the boundary between the Palaeocene and Eocene.

  Dr G Malin, Dr N Greenwood, Dr M Devlin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Coastal eutrophication is a worldwide issue with negative cultural and environmental impacts and its assessment is a formal requirement of several European Directives.
  Volcanic ash, soil development and resilience in a changing climate: a case study from Montserrat (BARCLAYUENV20ARIES)
  Prof J Barclay, Dr B Reid, Dr T Armijos, Dr M Cave
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type
