  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.

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).
