  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Productivity crises in past and future oceans: what ancient crises tell us about future threats to marine ecosystems
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The world’s oceans and their ecosystems are under threat from anthropogenic activities that are interacting to produce complex changes like never before.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Quantifying the evolutionary response to anthropogenic selection in migrating species
  Dr J Bolland
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Tracing the effects of human induced selection pressures through the genomes of wild species offers unprecedented insight into the way species evolve and adapt to changing environments.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Runaway sexual selection- catching the genes.
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Sexual selection has generated an incredible amount of biodiversity. The idea that exaggerated male traits and female choice for those traits become associated to produce runaway sexual selection is widely accepted.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Sensing greenhouse gas emissions from weathering plastics using lab-on-the-sea technology
  Dr N Pamme
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As plastics pass through the Earth System after disposal, they weather. As the polymers gradually oxidise, they lose mass producing methane, ethane, ethene and associated gasses.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The ecological functioning of the Antarctic benthos: vulnerability to climate change
  Dr C Waller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Climate models show that the effects of climate change, e.g. sea surface temperature increase and ocean acidification, will be most intense at the poles.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The effect of extreme climatic change on insect-plant interactions during the Jurassic
  Dr B Caswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The increases in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (pCO2), that are associated with climate change, cause decreases in the nutritional value of plants to the herbivorous insects that feed upon them.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The role of life histories and population age structure in the invasion success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, can cause huge ecological and economic damage. With increasing global trade, the number of new alien species is growing rapidly, and identifying which ones will be future invaders is an urgent global challenge.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Tricky, Sticky Stuff: developing new ways to look at what makes up sedimentary biofilms in marine, river and hot spring settings
  Dr M Rogerson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Since the Archean, microbes have been present in every environment on Earth, and today at least half of global biomass is prokaryotic.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Understanding the spatial and temporal dynamics of environmental DNA for monitoring and management of priority invasive species
  Dr L Lawson Handley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Invasive non-native species (INNS) are one of the five global drivers of biodiversity loss and the rate of biological invasions is increasing.
