  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
  Population ecology in a changing world.
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of population ecology and demographic modelling. Our research tackles problems at the pure and applied ends of the spectrum.
  Urban horticulture: assessing the ecosystem service costs and benefits of expansion into UK cities
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Dr S Campbell, Prof V Stovin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over half the global population live in urban areas, and in the UK that figure exceeds 80%. Ecosystem service provision (e.g., food production) by urban green infrastructure and biodiversity is therefore increasingly important for quality of life and environmental sustainability.
  Welfare and stress related effects in laboratory-reared fishes
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been much interest in the rearing conditions of both commercial and laboratory fishes and the welfare implications of these.
  Determining the agronomic and environmental impacts of organic products from agricultural and urban waste streams
  Prof D Chadwick, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst many EU countries, e.g.
  KESS 2 East Scholarship: Determining the potential for precision grazing to improve the resilience of livestock production systems.
  Dr P Williams, Dr J Gibbons
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year research PhD studentship in improving the economic and environmental performance of pasture-based livestock production systems through better utilisation of grass.
  KESS 2 East Scholarship: Strategies for meeting targets for ammonia emissions and nitrate leaching reduction for Welsh beef and sheep farms
  Prof D Chadwick, Dr P Williams
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year research PhD studentship that focuses on strategies for reducing ammonia emissions and nitrate leaching for Welsh beef and sheep farms.
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
