  Insect adaptation to Antarctica: past and future
  Dr S Hayward, Dr L Orsini, Prof J Colbourne
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Model reconstructions of the last glacial maximum (LGM ~20 000 years BP) suggest that all low-lying coastal areas on Antarctica, and many sub-Antarctic islands were completely covered by ice – thus wiping out all terrestrial life.
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Moving about a new axis: The role of the backbone in major adaptive radiations of terrestrial vertebrates
  Dr KT Bates, Dr K Jones, Dr P Cox, Dr J Gardiner
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary shifts in locomotion underpin major ecological transitions in vertebrates. Our understanding of how key innovations in the locomotor system drive taxonomic and ecological diversity during evolutionary transitions is largely based on the limbs.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland
  Prof M Oxenham, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in general, and climate in particular, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can also have catastrophic effects for human health.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics of higher delta-plain carboniferous swamps.
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This a unique opportunity to conduct evolutionary and paleoecological research on one of the UK’s most well-preserved fossil forests at Brymbo, Wrexham.
