  QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland
  Prof M Oxenham, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in general, and climate in particular, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can also have catastrophic effects for human health.
  Resilience of human interactions with new landscapes (ESR 13)
  Prof J Wainwright, Dr L Turnbull-Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As human populations have settled landscapes in the past, they have changed the vegetation and surface characteristics in ways that have often led to a change in the stability of those landscapes (Wainwright, 2015).
  Physical and socio-economic drivers of changing fire dynamics in Ethiopia’s drylands and impacts on ecosystem services.
  Dr E Tebbs, Prof M Wooster
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire is a critical component of the ecology of African savannas and it is used by humans as a tool for rangeland management. Across much of northern Africa there has been a decreasing trend in burned area, but the drivers and impacts of these changes are not yet fully understood.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.
  Contested fire management: Understanding trade-offs between traditional and government approaches to fire management
  Dr K Schreckenberg
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire is a critical component of many agricultural and livestock-based land use systems in the Global South where its management benefits from generations of local experience in how, when and where to set fires for maximum local benefit.
  ONE Planet DTP - Barriers to tree re-establishment in logged tropical rainforests in Borneo
  Prof Y Teh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using a quasi-experimental approach and spatial modelling, this project will test the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on the success of natural forest restoration in an expansive landscape dominated by oil palm production (Northern Borneo).
  ONE Planet DTP - Biofouling invertebrates and their larvae as vectors of antimicrobial resistance and marine pathogens. (OP20232)
  Dr N Aldred
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Of the many human impacts on the global ecosystem, the increasing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of bacterial pathogens is a significant challenge.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing a methodology to measure and optimise the impacts of climate change on urban building environment (Ref: OP20283)
  Dr Z Qian
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the Government heating and energy target guidelines to improved building performance it is important to consider building design and human activities when examining the impact of changing microclimate due to climate change.
  ONE Planet DTP - Multiple benefits and opportunities from tree planting in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania (OP20203)
  Dr M Pfeifer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sub-Saharan Africa faces tough climate change challenges and high rates of deforestation. It is the only region where human population growth will still be rising by 2080, and rising with it will be demands on land for resources and food production.
  The impact of microplastic pollution on carbon sequestration in urban soils (Advert reference: RDF20/EE/GES/PRENDERGAST-MILLER)
  Dr M Prendergast-Miller
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing human footprint of urbanisation demands more intense study of the human impact on urban soils and stresses on urban soil biodiversity.
