PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Microplastic debris is a prolific environmental contaminant, impacting on marine ecosystems across the globe.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  The combined environmental health impact of microplastics, toxic algae & human pathogens
  Prof R Quilliam, Dr E Mackay, Dr P Hunter, Dr D Oliver
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research in the fields of environmental pollution and water quality, microplastics and freshwater ecology.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: Arrival of the fittest: examining the underlying mechanisms of morphological plasticity in an adaptive radiation
  Dr K Parsons, Dr L Bussiere, Prof M Dalby
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

TO APPLY, CLICK ’VISIT WEBSITE’ BUTTON. Phenotypic plasticity currently drives contentious debate in evolutionary biology (1,2,3).
  Does phenotypic plasticity help or hinder rapid adaptation?
  Dr S J Plaistow, Prof J Hill, Dr V Oostra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic stress is altering our planet at an unprecedented rate and has major implications for global biodiversity, health and the economy.
  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.
  The effect of microplastics on freshwater communities and ecosystems
  Dr Pavel Kratina, Dr O Eyice, Dr JI Jones
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD student to study the effect of microplastics on freshwater environments and ecosystem services as part of our £12 million EU Interreg VA France (Channel) England Programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund to tackle plastic pollution along the English Channel.
  EASTBIO: Origin and maintenance of plasticity in response to thermal stress in invasive and declining ants.
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Lancaster, Dr J Stockan, Dr N Bailey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Fabio Manfredini (University of Aberdeen). https://fmanfredini79.wixsite.com/manfredini. Dr Lesley Lancaster (University of Aberdeen).
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Departments of Chemical Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering, Engineering Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  Environmental and social dynamics of lead ammunition use. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr S Crowley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Sarah Crowley, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Sociobiology on the fly; understanding social interactions in multispecies groups
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).
  PhD position in Plant Ecology
  Dr Sergey Rosbakh
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Regensburg with its over 21,000 students is an innovative and interdisciplinary campus university that provides a broad variety of research activities and disciplines for German and foreign students.
  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  Invisible Threats to Oceans (InTO): assessing the combined toxicity effects of emerging anthropogenic pollutants on microbial communities (SUPER DTP)
  Dr S Matallana-Surget, Dr T Gutierrez
Application Deadline: 29 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants represent one of the main environmental concerns; they are defined as new contaminants produced by modern society that are not routinely monitored, but cause adverse ecological effects.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
