  Phenology shifts, gut microbiomes, andfitness consequences in wild birds
  Dr J Schroeder, Dr C Banks-Leite
Application Deadline: 12 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project combines field work with wild birds, some aviary work with the consequences of spring warming. You will learn to handle small animals, conduct quantitative data analyses and (to a limited extend) analyse laboratory data.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2020 covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  The role of physics in the foraging behaviour of leaf-cutter ants, the principal insect pest in the Neotropics
  Dr D Labonte
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Evolutionary Biomechanics Laboratory, led by Dr David Labonte at the Department. of Bioengineering, Imperial College, London, invites applications for.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
