  Making tiering in environmental assessment work (BONDA1U20SF)
  Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) system is supposed to predict the effects of actions that might have significant impacts at all levels of decision-making, including policies, plans, programmes and projects.
  Forensic oceanography: how does winter leave a fingerprint in the ocean? (ZHAIUENV20ARIES)
  Dr X Zhai, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Southern Ocean is a critical component of the global climate system, accounting for about 75% of ocean heat uptake and 40% of ocean anthropogenic carbon uptake.
  Deluge or drought? Climate change and South Asian Monsoon rainfall (WEBBERUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Prof M Joshi, Dr AG Turner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  A new approach to modelling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV20ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  Who cycles DMSP in coastal waters and how? (TODDUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Todd, Dr R Airs, Dr F Hopkins, Dr S Moxon
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

INTRODUCTION. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth’s most abundant organosulfur molecules. It is an anti-stress compound that is produced by many marine phytoplankton and bacteria.
  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
  Climates of the Caribbean: What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSUMTH20ARIES)
  Prof D Stevens, Dr S Dye, Dr J Graham, Dr J Pinnegar
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  Genetic rescue and the conservation of small populations (SPURGINUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr L Spurgin, Prof M Gage, Dr J Gilroy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will address the question of whether small populations can be “genetically rescued”. The student will carry out replicated and controlled genetic rescue experiments to determine the extent and conditions under which immigration improves population performance in the wild.
  Carbon Capture for Soil Ecosystem Service Enhancement (REIDUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Reid, Dr A Harwood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Over the last century, agriculture has caused soil erosion and the loss of soil organic carbon on an enormous scale.
  Native and invasive ladybirds in a changing UK climate (PERRYUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Perry, Dr H Roy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
