  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe - QUADRAT
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Learn state of the art chronological tools in one of the most dynamic archaeological environments in Asia. Aims. Mongolia has been the most rapidly developing archaeological territory in Eastern Eurasia.
  Community assembly processes of soil ammonia oxidisers under different nitrogen use efficiency strategies
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microbial communities mediate important global biogeochemical cycles and a better understanding of the mechanisms of community assembly is therefore important.
  Disentangling palaeodiet: Modern and archaeological case studies in compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis - QUADRAT
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The nitrogen isotope analysis of individual amino acids represents a potentially powerful tool for estimating trophic positions and the source of dietary protein in archaeological case studies.
  Does familiarity breed contempt? Seeking coexistence strategies with wolves
  Prof S Redpath, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Large carnivores are challenging to conserve. They kill livestock, threaten human life, instil fear in people, and their presence often leads to conflict between livelihood and conservation interests.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Facilitating a Natural Capital Approach in Marine Protected Area Governance in the UK - QUADRAT
  Dr T Potts, Prof A Longo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine Protected Area designation and management has significantly advanced over the past decade in the UK. In response to a range of EU, UK and devolved drivers, considerable progress has been made over the spatial protection of marine biodiversity in the inshore and offshore environment.
  Fostering sustainability through organic waste re-use: drivers for adoption and pathways for diffusion in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  MOSAIC: Microplastics in Scotland and Northern Ireland Catchment and Marine Environments - QUADRAT
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr R Flood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The current understanding of microplastic flux between terrestrial and marine environments is extremely limited and considered primarily in ‘pristine environments’ (e.g., Arctic ice).
  Precious metals of the Anthropocene - QUADRAT
  Dr T Mighall, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Understanding the consequences of metal pollution is of increasing importance given the ever-growing consumption of resources and the increasing sophistication of metallic products, creating new and different types of waste, which is often discarded into the environment (Nriagu, 1990).
