  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Understanding the response of variability in tree reproduction (masting) to climatic and environmental change
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many tree species show a reproductive strategy known as masting, which is characterised by switching between years of bumper investment in reproduction (“mast years”), and years of low investment.
  Understanding the response of variability in tree reproduction (masting) to climatic and environmental change
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse, Dr J Dean
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will explore how climate regulates variability in tree seed production, and predict future changes in tree reproduction and its consequences on ecosystem dynamics.
  Marine Risk Assessment of High Technology Metals in the Context of Climate Change (MARTECH)
  Prof T Hutchinson, Dr M Truebano Garcia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around the world, investment is growing in the electrical economy for communication, transport and renewable energy systems. From smart phones to electric cars, a new generation of High Technology Metals (e.g.
  Adapting to climate change: transgenerational acclimation as a mechanism of rapid evolution
  Dr M Truebano Garcia, Dr P Cotton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the context of climate change, it is imperative to determine to what extent species have the capacity to persist in a warmer environment.
  Understanding extinction risk in the Anthropocene
  Dr M Gonzalez-Suarez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a humanized world in which even the most remote areas have been affected by the actions of our species. Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans.
  Quantifying the status and success on restored native oyster Ostrea edulis beds in the Solent.
  Prof C Hauton, Dr A Jensen, Dr J Preston, Dr I Hendy
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, the restoration of ostreid bivalves is gaining momentum. In European waters the native oyster Ostrea edulis is the focus of extensive restoration efforts and in the Solent, the Blue Marine Foundation (BMF) have been leading efforts to restore native oysters since 2017.
  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.
