  Hotspots and hot moments: the role of connectivity and resilience science for managing human-impacted catchment systems (ESR 10)
  Dr R Poeppl, Dr T Glade
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This ESR will use and combine different aspects of connectivity and resilience science to identity geomorphic hotspots and hot moments in human-impacted catchment systems, and will derive and test management options.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Physical and socio-economic drivers of changing fire dynamics in Ethiopia’s drylands and impacts on ecosystem services.
  Dr E Tebbs, Prof M Wooster
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire is a critical component of the ecology of African savannas and it is used by humans as a tool for rangeland management. Across much of northern Africa there has been a decreasing trend in burned area, but the drivers and impacts of these changes are not yet fully understood.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  The non-human biological trace evidence of shallow graves
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"A number of non-human biological traces are present in or around corpses shallowly buried in soil. This project attempts to characterize the different types of traces, and inform on the role they can play in the forensic analysis of a crime scene.
  Geography PhD opportunities

PhD Type

For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  Investigating how changing interactions between humans and elephants affect forest socio-ecological systems in drylands: A case study of Mukogodo Forest, Kenya
  Dr B Bersaglio, Dr F Nunan
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

A recent report by the Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services claims that global biodiversity is declining at an unprecedented rate.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  SCENARIO - Predicting the ecological and societal impacts of species on the move with climate change in the UK
  Dr N Pettorelli, Dr J Neumann, Prof K Norris, Dr L Shaffrey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

There is a growing recognition that the redistribution of species driven by a changing climate is creating profound challenges for societies and regional economies around the globe.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  Contested fire management: Understanding trade-offs between traditional and government approaches to fire management
  Dr K Schreckenberg
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire is a critical component of many agricultural and livestock-based land use systems in the Global South where its management benefits from generations of local experience in how, when and where to set fires for maximum local benefit.
