  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?.
  Designing protected areas networks that incorporate animal movement and habitat connectivity (FRANCOUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Franco, Prof C Peres, Dr T Luisetti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The establishment of robust networks of protected areas is key to address biodiversity loss. Species that move between breeding and non-breeding sites are among those that are most challenging to protect.
  Assessing the impact of environmental change on host responses to infection and disease
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Dr S Burthe
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will explore how environmental variables impact on the ability of different individuals in a population to resist and tolerate infection in a long term study of vulnerable seabirds in the North Sea.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  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.
