  Building resilience in coastal governance: ethics and justice in responsible innovation (FORSTER_UDEV20AS)
  Dr J Forster, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr I Lorenzoni
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This competition is open to UK and EU nationals only, subject to certain conditions. Apply to the University of East Anglia for a place to study by Monday 20 January 2020.
  Understanding the impact of the ash dieback invasion of Europe (HALLE20DTP)
  Dr N Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is expected to lose the majority of its third most common tree species, ash (Fraxinus excelsior), to the ash dieback fungus (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) and this fungal invasion is estimated to cost Britain £15 billion.
  Conservation genomics of the European Polecat (DIPALMAUEI20ARIES)
  Prof F Di Palma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The European polecat is a medium-sized carnivore found across much of the United Kingdom. Once persecuted and found only in unmanaged forests of central Wales, it is now widespread across much of its former range.
  Making impact assessment relevant for the 21st century (BONDAU20SF)
  Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The future of impact assessment (IA) (a mandated decision-support process in every country of the world) has to contend with global megatrends, including the fourth industrial revolution (Retief et al., 2016), that are set to change the face of the planet (Dusik et al., 2018).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Life and Environment During Rapid Climatic Warming 56 million Years Ago: A Geological Analogue for the Future (PEDENTCHOUKUENV20ARIES)
  Dr N Pedentchouk, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RATIONALE AND SIGNIFICANCE. One of the most extreme global warming events in the geologic past took place at the boundary between the Palaeocene and Eocene.

  Prof C Van Oosterhout, Dr D Bell, Dr S Tollington
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) produces the Red List that classifies species’ extinction risks.
  Calling in the wilderness: the use of Passive Acoustic Monitoring in biodiversity surveys (NEWSONUBTO20ARIES)
  Dr S Newson, Dr B Milner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. By 2020, the BTO will be in its second year of an exciting 5-year landscape restoration program in Belarus and Ukraine – ‘Wilderness without borders.
  How does Emiliania huxleyi invade polar oceans? (MOCKUENV20ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Emiliania huxleyi (Ehux) is a dominant species of coccolithophores, which are calcifying microalgae that have influenced global climate for millions of years.
  What can atmospheric measurements tell us about how the Atlantic Ocean is responding to climate change? (MANNINGUENV20ARIES)
  Dr A Manning, Dr P Pickers, Prof P Palmer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oceans are the world’s most important long-term carbon dioxide (CO2) sink and substantially reduce climate change by sucking up vast amounts of fossil fuel CO2 emissions (~9.3 million tonnes CO2 every year).
  Systems off-balance? Exploring the cumulative impacts of enriched coastal waters, altered nutrient ratios and a warming climate on coastal phytoplankton communities (MALINUENV20ARIES)
  Dr G Malin, Dr N Greenwood, Dr M Devlin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020
