  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Linking Personality to Ageing in a wild bird.
  Dr P Bize, Dr J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round

  Persistence of the Listeria monocytogenes in food processing environments: Unravelling the mechanisms using omics approaches (ref: SF18/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathogenic bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes the severe disease listeriosis, which is associated with high mortality rates of approximately 20%.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
