  Anticipating climate change: understanding impacts on the water environment in a major UK river basin
  Dr C Bradley, Prof D M Hannah
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
River flow and water temperature are critically important for riverine physical, chemical, and biological processes. There are many potential societal benefits if we can advance our understanding of.
  Brain evolution in pre-mammalian cynodonts and the role of intraspecific variation
  Dr S Lautenschlager
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Modern mammals are distinguished from other vertebrate groups by a number of distinctive characters, which include the trend towards a large brain (in comparison to body size) and an expanded neocortex.
  Carbon emissions from volcanism: the Karoo-Ferrar large igneous province and the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event
  Dr S Greene, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Many of the most severe climate ‘events’ and carbon cycle perturbations of the Meso-Cenozoic coincide with major episodes of volcanism linked to Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs).
  Correlative microscopic analysis of uptake, localisation and transformations of nanoscale particles in freshwater foodwebs
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The potential for human exposure to manufactured nanoparticles (NPs) has increased in recent years, in part through their incorporation into a wide range of commercial goods and medical applications.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Elucidating the transmission and persistence of antimicrobial resistance genes in the Thames watershed
  Dr J U Kreft
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The widespread use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine and as growth promoters in agriculture has not only selected for resistance genes but also for plasmids carrying them.
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
  Evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the early cerapodan dinosaurs
  Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cerapodans are a major group of herbivorous bipedal and quadrupedal ornithischian dinosaurs that dominated the terrestrial herbivorous niche during the Cretaceous.
  Future Climate: Future Pollen and Spores
  Dr F Pope
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Globally, atmospheric CO2 concentrations are rising because of anthropogenic activity. They will continue to rise in the coming century.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
