  Quantifying the relative importance of extrinsic and intrinsic drivers of individual behaviour and habitat use of hefted sheep on a biodiverse but fragile upland ecosystem
  Dr S D Twiss, Dr R Baxter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Numerical and experimental investigations of compressive behaviour of FRP-confined waste-containing concrete columns
  Dr G Gong, Dr J Xia, Dr L Di Sarno
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prosperous construction industry causes enormous carbon-dioxide emission and demolished building wastes which have significant negative environmental impacts.
  Recreating the South Orkney Ice Cap: a sentinel of Antarctic Ice Sheet change?
  Dr K Hogan, Dr S Jamieson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The South Orkney Plateau (SOP) micro-continent lies in a unique oceanographic position between deep, cold ocean currents formed in the Weddell Sea and the dominant Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC).
  The responses of rare anadromous fish to river reconnection: using fish movement behaviour to measure population recovery
  Dr J Bolland
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Habitat fragmentation is a major source of biodiversity loss in freshwaters, with rivers around the world fragmented by weirs and dams that create impoundments.
  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife
  Dr P J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans.
  QUADRAT DTP: Trace element behaviour in surface environments on enriched shales, Britain and Ireland
  Prof J Parnell, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical aspect of environmental studies is the understanding of how trace elements are distributed in surface deposits where they can cause toxicity in the water supply, animals and foodstuffs.
  Fish Swimming Dynamics and Behaviour in the Vicinity of a Fish Exclusion Screen
  Dr C A M E Wilson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will examine the effectiveness of different fish exclusion screens, to enable fish to safely remain in the main river system and allow safe passage.
  ONE Planet DTP - Predicting farm profitability under future climate and market uncertainty. (OP20272)
  Dr F Areal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. The PhD project will develop a farmer behaviour predictive model to investigate the implications that 1) climate change events (e.g.
  Use of remote sensing data to develop behavioural profiles for global change scenarios
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Habitat loss, human encroachment and climate change are affecting biodiversity globally. Understanding how species can survive under increasingly adverse conditions will be key to protecting their persistence.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  Investment decisions in grey squirrels: the role of future discounting and executive control. PhD in Psychology (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr L Leaver
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Lisa Leaver, Department of Psychology, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
