  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.
  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.
  QUADRAT DTP: The impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on cyanobacteria blooms in lakes
  Dr H Roe, Dr A Douglas
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been an increased awareness in recent years of the problems associated with harmful cyanobacteria algal blooms (cyanoHABs) in freshwater systems.
  Crude Sulfate Turpentine as a new source of biorenewable fuel
  Prof S B Bull, Dr C Chuck
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dwindling fossil fuel supplies and global warming mean there is an urgent need to develop biorenewable replacements for the petrochemical based fuels and lubricants consumed by the automotive industry.
  Can we develop tools for securing Lawtonian landscape resilience?
  Dr R Corstanje, Prof J Harris
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lawton (2010) reviewed England’s biodiversity and ecological networks and concluded that biodiversity sites did not comprise a coherent and resilient ecological network, in the face of a changing climate and threats to biodiversity.
  Earth observation for sustainable sugarcane production
  Dr D Simms, Dr P Burgess
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sugarcane production must address the challenge between the need to increase crop production and improve labour productivity whilst improving the efficiency of water and fertiliser use (Hess et al, 2016).
  Resilience of human interactions with new landscapes (ESR 13)
  Prof J Wainwright, Dr L Turnbull-Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As human populations have settled landscapes in the past, they have changed the vegetation and surface characteristics in ways that have often led to a change in the stability of those landscapes (Wainwright, 2015).
