  Connectivity within network processes and coupling with global flows (ESR 11)
  Dr L Liu, Dr A Ioannides
Application Deadline: 8 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain structure and function are naturally modelled as networks with cytoarchitectonic areas and deep brain nuclei represented as nodes and the white matter or some measure of functional connectivity as edges in a graph.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  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.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: How effective are Protected Areas in conserving biodiversity?
  Dr L Ross, Dr D Pincheira-Donoso
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protected Areas (PAs) are of critical importance to biodiversity conservation at a time of unprecedented rates of biodiversity loss due to multiple and interacting anthropogenic drivers of change.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Is a trophic cascade framework useful for predicting the outcome of rewilding in plantation forests?
  Prof X Lambin, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rewilding is a novel approach to conservation that captures the public’s imagination and focuses on ecosystem processes rather than necessarily restoring a system to its antecedent state.
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to climate change in the North East Atlantic
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr P Collins
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate vulnerability is the degree to which a system is susceptible to, or unable to cope with, the adverse effects of climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Co-evolution of Earth and Life: are land plants good for coral reefs?
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the first four billion years of its history, the Earth was a fundamentally different planet to that which we know today. the only green covering on land (if any) was provided by mats of microbes.
  QUADRAT DTP: Conservation implications of variation in reproductive traits among fragmented populations of tropical forest trees
  Prof D Burslem, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The persistence of plant populations in fragmented landscapes is dependent on adequate gene flow via seed and pollen dispersal.
