  Understanding the behaviour, fate and environmental risk of microplastics in the plant-soil system
  Dr L Cardenas, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature of the problem. Contamination of the terrestrial, freshwater and marine biosphere by microplastics is now widely recognised as one of the world’s greatest pollution threats.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  Understanding the new environmental risks posed by pollution from the digital economy
  Dr I Burke, Dr R Newton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing consumption of materials in our digital society represents an ever increasing waste stream containing novel and complex mixtures of chemicals, including many oxyanion forming contaminants (OFCs, e.g.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  SCENARIO - Love isn’t in the air: Assessing how air pollution interrupts insect sex pheromone signalling
  Dr R Girling
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As humans, the dominant sense with which we perceive the world is vision, in contrast many insects rely upon odours to perceive and interact with their environment.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Population ecology in a changing world.
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of population ecology and demographic modelling. Our research tackles problems at the pure and applied ends of the spectrum.
  Understanding urban trees: form, function and vulnerability
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Prof C P Osborne, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than half the global population already live in urban areas and that figure will rise to 66% by 2020. Ecosystem service provision in urban areas is therefore becoming increasingly important for people’s quality of life and the wider environment, to which urban trees make a disproportionate contribution.
  Information under anthropogenic change: how does social living respond to increased noise and turbidity?
  Dr C Ioannou, Prof A Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many species, across a wide range of taxa, rely on indirect information from others in addition to private information they have acquired directly from their environment.
