The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership

Are you interested in helping to solve some of the most pressing issues concerning the natural environment? Are you keen to develop advanced research skills that can equip you for a wide range of future careers? For these reasons and more, you may be an ideal candidate to apply for a studentship on the London NERC DTP. Read more

Impacts of non-native invasive crayfish in tropical freshwater systems

Invasive species are a key cause of biodiversity decline in freshwater systems. Crayfish are a particularly problematic invader, with multiple species ranked amongst the worst global invaders. Read more

Can Industrial pollution drive speciation through reinforcement?

There is clear evidence of many plant and animal species adapting rapidly to human induced environmental change, but the extent to which this will lead to speciation is very poorly understood. Read more

Why are there so few C2 grasses?

Overview (<300 words). The vast majority of plant species use C3 photosynthesis. However, a turbo-charged form of photosynthesis called C4 evolved independently in nearly 70 lineages and is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops. Read more

Identifying and protecting coral reef adaptive potential

Background. The recent unprecedented levels of heat stress have profoundly altered many coral reef communities globally, affecting ~1 billion people whose livelihoods depend directly on them. Read more

Evolution of Mammalian Locomotion

A PhD opportunity is available in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones at the University of Manchester. The lab studies the evolution of mammalian locomotion drawing from methods in comparative anatomy, biomechanics, paleobiology, and evolutionary modelling. Read more

Hindcasting faunal distributions in the Holocene to understand interactions between ancient societies, biodiversity and climate

BACKGROUND. Faced with the urgent challenge of predicting the consequences of current and future climate change, it is imperative that we seek to learn lessons about climate-animal-human relations from the long-term records available from the past. Read more

Improved computational methods for bacterial strain identification

Infections and infectious diseases – including bacterial infections - cost the NHS an estimated £30 billion each year. Key to countering threats to human health from such infections is the rapid and precise identification of novel bacterial strains. Read more

Functional ecology of conodonts: roles and responses to ecosystem restructuring through the Palaeozoic

Project Highlights. Use cutting edge approaches to analyse conodont feeding mechanisms and interpret the conodont fossil record in terms of their functional ecology and differential evolutionary success and survival of ecological guilds. Read more
