  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Evolution of inbreeding mating systems in social species: theory on causes and consequences.
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr J Reid, Prof T Bilde
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project aims at developing new spatially- and genetically-explicit theory to understand (1) evolution of inbreeding mating systems and associated sociality, and (2) its consequences for species adaptation to changing environments and evolutionary potential.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study a frontier technology to decrease the overall current energy penalty of the biogas upgrading process.
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  Development of advanced adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This experimental project will face the global challenge of reducing emissions from industrial activities. The research candidate will develop advanced adsorbent materials aiming at the separation of undesired species and/or impurities from industrial gas mixtures.
