  The behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds.
  Prof T Guilford
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Merton College are seeking outstanding applicants for a DPhil scholarship to conduct research at the Department of Zoology on the behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds in the Oxford Navigation Group (OxNav) under the supervision of Professor Tim Guilford.
  Biologging marine predators in the UK and overseas. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr M Witt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Matthew Witt, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  The responses of rare anadromous fish to river reconnection: using fish movement behaviour to measure population recovery
  Dr J Bolland
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Habitat fragmentation is a major source of biodiversity loss in freshwaters, with rivers around the world fragmented by weirs and dams that create impoundments.
  The impact of sensory pollution on fish navigation.
  Dr C Newport, Dr T Burt de Perera
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals use senses to gather information. However, sensory systems are not perfect and cannot always detect a clear signal. Interfering external sources can cause ‘sensory pollution’ thereby interrupting normal behaviour.
  Fine-scale acoustic and movement behaviour of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Cardigan Bay, Wales
  Dr S King, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bottlenose dolphin is a qualifying feature of three Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) in the UK, two of which are in Cardigan Bay, Wales.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Killer whale predation of harbour seals in the coastal waters of Scotland: investigating the ecological drivers and consequences of an apex predator-prey interaction
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr GD Hastie, Dr S Isojunno
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. This PhD project will investigate killer whale predation of harbour seals with the ultimate goal to inform their conservation.
  Modelling local population dynamics for whale sharks in the Maldives
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Dr H Worthington
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data for this project will be provided by the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme. The broad aim is to further the understanding of the local population dynamics of this enigmatic species.
  Understanding Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr A Le Brocq
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Anne Le Brocq, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter,. Additional Supervisors.
  Understanding the importance of spatio-temporal variation in oceanographic and climate conditions for biological traits
  Dr S Patrick, Prof J Sharples, Dr S Descamps
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to understand the spatial and temporal scale at which the environment drives behaviour and breeding performance in Arctic seabirds.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.

  Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint studentship between the University of Western Australia and Bangor University. This fully-funded project addresses a topic of major international significance.

PhD Type

The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) offers up to two competitively. awarded and generously funded MPhil/PhD studentships annually.
  Angry Damsels: Do Species Interactions After Overfishing Enhance or Inhibit Coral Reef Recovery?
  Dr S Keith, Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reef species are undergoing widespread mortality under increasingly frequent mass coral bleaching events, which will continue until global efforts reduce CO2 emissions.
