  Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe - QUADRAT
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Learn state of the art chronological tools in one of the most dynamic archaeological environments in Asia. Aims. Mongolia has been the most rapidly developing archaeological territory in Eastern Eurasia.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Sea-level change and conservation, past, present and future - QUADRAT
  Dr J Neilson, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland is a unique marine water body, a large deep inland sea connected to the open ocean by a narrow channel that creates tidal currents of speeds up to 9 knots.
  Something in the wind...reconstructing the position and strength of the Southern Hemisphere Westerly winds - QUADRAT
  Dr D Mauquoy, Dr M Blaauw
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this project is to use peat deposits in southern South America to identify long-term changes in the strength and position of the Southern Westerly winds (SWW) during the last ~2000 years.
  Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  Mosses, rock-weathering, and global environmental change: is the present the key to the past (and future?)
  Dr A Brasier, Dr S Woodin
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
This exciting project links geological and ecological research to investigate the role of bryophytes in terrestrial weathering and biogeochemical cycling.
  Reconstructing past thaumarchaeotal ecology and evolution in peatland soils
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
Analyses of past ecological and evolutionary adaptation processes are essential to understand present and future biodiversity processes.
  Why you aren’t always what you eat: Exploring the influence of dietary macro-nutrient composition on diet-tissue 15N-enrichment and the implications for palaeodietary reconstruction.
  Dr K Britton, Prof J Speakman
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
The stable isotope analysis of preserved human and animal tissues is a major methodological approach employed by archaeological scientists for the reconstruction of past diets.
  Novel regulation of platelet-endothelial crosstalk in settings of vascular disease

  The influence of serious battlefield traumatic injury (SBTI ) upon cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk and heart rate variability
  Prof A McConnell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aims of the project are to examine the impact of STBI upon HRV and its relationship to other CVD risk markers in a cohort British Military Servicemen who have sustained recent SBTI.
