  Assessing the rock record of hazardous pulsatory pyroclastic density currents
  Dr R Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are hot, density-driven flows of gas, rock and ash generated during explosive volcanic eruptions, or from the collapse of lava domes (e.g.
  Flickering switches in the landscape: searching for tipping-points, system noise and bifurcation in Natural Flood Management catchments
  Prof T Coulthard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural Flood Management (NFM) is an upcoming approach to managing flood risk in river basins – by modifying the hydrology through naturally sympathetic methods (such as small wooden dams, bunds and re-forestation).
  Go with the flow: integrating hydraulic models with eDNA based species detection
  Dr B Haenfling
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiversity estimates of fish communities for environmental monitoring and research have traditionally been obtained with survey methods, which are invasive, selective, expensive, and may be highly affected by weather and hydrodynamic constraints.
  How do genomes respond to sexual system transitions?
  Dr A Gomez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How genomes respond to conflicting evolutionary forces is a crucial and challenging question in evolutionary biology. This challenge can now be tackled given the huge improvements in genome sequencing technologies and computing power, allowing the analysis of multiple complete genomes.
  Nutrigenomics and the resilience of bees in a changing climate
  Dr J Gilbert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ecosystem stability and global food security depend upon healthy populations of bees, our foremost pollinators. Bees provide pollination services worth hundreds of billions of pounds annually.
  Past and future ocean productivity: Using ancient extinction crises to inform how we respond to today’s threats
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World’s ocean ecosystems may change fundamentally in the next few centuries due to the severe threats posed by present-day human activities which together are changing natural systems like never before.
  Reconciling lethal control of an iconic native species (red deer Cervus elaphus) with nature conservation within a multiple-use landscape
  Dr A Ward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sustainable use of renewable natural resources, including wildlife populations, is becoming more challenging as the human population grows (White & Ward 2011).
  Sticky biomolecules – from sediments to astrobiology
  Dr D Benoit
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion of biological material to igneous rocks and silicates is still a poorly understood phenomenon at a molecular level. Yet such information is crucial in many domains where biological material comes into contact with rocky formations.
  The evolution of functional disparity in the avian skull
  Dr J Bright
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Birds represent one of the most spectacular adaptive radiations in earth’s history, with over 10,000 extant species spanning a range of ecologies and environments.
  Variability and permanence of functional traits to determine environmental tipping points
  Dr K Wollenberg Valero
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Species diversity has a disproportionate influence on ecosystem functioning and stability and as such, resilience to extinction events.
