  Valuing ecosystem services provided by UK bats under climate change. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr O Razgour
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Orly Razgour, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Genomics of Adaption to Climate Change in Rice
  Dr M Chapman, Dr M Carine, Dr L Williams
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Feeding a growing population sustainably in the face of climate change requires us to resolve the genetic basis of crop tolerance to stress (especially temperature, precipitation and edaphic factors).
  ArcticBuzz: bumblebee community responses to climate change in Lapland
  Dr R Gill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinator declines are of global concern and understanding the factors driving this trend is a research priority. Yet to date, we still have limited knowledge of how climate change can affect insect pollinator populations.
  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.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Determining how ancient human societies and historic climate change have shaped Egypt’s mammalian fauna and its implications for our understanding of the links between people and the environment
  Dr J Bro-Jorgensen, Prof CD Thomas, Dr S Snape
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Predicting risk and planning mitigation against regional impact from climate change on populations of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpines)
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr E McClymont, Dr M C Lucas
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arctic char have a circumpolar distribution in high boreal, alpine and arctic habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. Many southern populations are stationary in freshwater habitats, but some especially in the north are anadromous (moving between marine and freshwater habitats).
  Global phylo-epidemiology Vibrio parahaemolyticus within a context of climate change
  Prof J Martinez-Urtaza, Prof C Hauton, Dr R Marsh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Vibrio parahaemolyticus (Vp) is a marine bacterium and a natural inhabitant of coastal environments worldwide.
