  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

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Making climate change work for crop yield potential
  Dr L Dixon, Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof B H Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. We know temperature affects how plants grow but we do not understand the effects of temperature fluctuations, particularly those that are occurring outside the classic seasonal norm.
  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).
  Chemical biology meets microbiology to combat climate change (GATESU20DTP)
  Dr A Gates, Dr Z Waller
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As well as carbon dioxide (CO2), other important climate-active gases are known to drive global warming. Importantly, nitrous oxide (N2O), is a greenhouse gas with 300-times greater global warming power than CO2 and it also contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer.
