  13 fully funded studentships- an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training
 . 12 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training. Sustaining the World's freshwater ecosystems, while meeting the water demands of a growing population, will require a new brand of intellectually mobile and agile problem solvers.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership
We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2019 and covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  Developing a conservation action plan for the critically endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr M Holderied
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Philippines is deemed the “hottest” biodiversity hotspot (Shi et al., 2005), due to high species richness across multiple ecosystems and rapid habitat conversion.
  Floral utopia for urban pollinators - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof J Memmott
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Pollinators are declining worldwide, and a lack of floral resources is high on the list of likely causes. While there are many pollinator-friendly planting mixes for use in urban and rural areas, most are based on expert knowledge rather than a rigorous evidence base.
  How do disease vector populations respond to climate change? NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S English, Dr J Bridle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
One of the major concerns about climate change is how it will influence future distribution of important disease vectors. Such effects are likely to be significant – insects are highly sensitive to temperature for vital rates – yet difficult to predict or to generalise across species.
  Intraspecific variation in responses to noise and light pollution - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof A Radford, Dr C Ioannou
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Human population growth, rapid urbanisation and the expansion of transportation networks have dramatically altered terrestrial and aquatic environments.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - Diversity and speciation of aquatic macroinvertebrates of Malawi
  Prof M Genner, Prof M Beaumont
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Freshwater faunas are increasingly threatened by urbanisation, agricultural intensification, water abstraction, dam building, overfishing and invasive species.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - Predator-prey interactions under near-future environmental change: The combined effects of increasing temperature and turbidity
  Dr C Ioannou, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
In aquatic habitats, temperature and water turbidity are critical environmental variables that are increasing globally. Substantial effects of turbidity on predator-prey interactions are already known, which are often mediated by changed activity in animals.
