  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
  Enhancing Fairtrade farmers’ resilience to environmental change
  Dr A Tallontire, Prof L Stringer
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agricultural production across the globe is being affected by multiple environmental challenges, the most important of which include climate change, biodiversity loss and land degradation (Reed and Stringer, 2016).
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield, Prof R Warren, Dr J Price
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Using genomic data of sponges to reveal patterns of genetic diversity and connectivity in the Mediterranean Sea
  Dr A Riesgo, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Understanding the genetic diversity and connectivity patterns of marine invertebrates and how they adapt to their local environments is vital to design conservation strategies.
  How will air pollution and climate change combine to impact future global food supply?
  Dr L Emberson, Dr F Hayes
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  Predicting the future: the paradox of transgenerational non-genetic inheritance in evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman, Dr S Immler
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Parental environments can affect offspring performance over many generations.
  Building resilience in coastal governance: ethics and justice in responsible innovation (FORSTER_UDEV20AS)
  Dr J Forster, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr I Lorenzoni
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This competition is open to UK and EU nationals only, subject to certain conditions. Apply to the University of East Anglia for a place to study by Monday 20 January 2020.
  Our Place Our Future: Developing and testing an integrated climate risk framework for heritage sites in Scotland.
  Dr K Crowley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is not only threatening our future but destroying our past. Working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) this project will examine the impacts to heritage sites in Scotland under future extreme climate risk scenarios.
  Adapting to life in an increasingly acid world: understanding tolerance to acidic waters in populations of trout (Salmo trutta). PhD in Biosciences(NERC FRESH).
