UNDERSTANDING MECHANISMS UNDERPINNING CLIMATE RESILIENCE IN MANAGED PASTURE GRASSLAND

Maintaining productive, functional ecosystems in a changing climate is a key challenge for grassland managers, especially in the context of increasingly frequent and severe droughts and heatwaves. Read more

PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences – The hydroecology of glacial demise

This project will focus on modelling the ecological impact of glacial melt. Climate warming is melting glaciers at unprecedented rates, however the ecological consequences of this are largely unknown. Read more

Harnessing the power of plant social interactions to breed better rice

Applications are invited for this exciting, fully funded, 42 month PhD studentship at the University of Aberdeen. This project is part of The newly established Anthony & Margaret Johnston. Read more

Ecosystem resilience to pathogens

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available via the QUEX scheme, jointly supervised by Associate Professor Jan Engelstaedter (The University of Queensland, Australia) and Dr Ben Longdon (University of Exeter, UK). Read more

Discovery of novel antibiotic natural products from spider fungi (GANESANA_U23SF)

Antimicrobial resistance is a major healthcare challenge globally. Our approach to solving this global crisis is to hunt for novel natural products from microorganisms as leads for drug discovery. Read more

The evolution of mating systems and parental care: phylogenetic analyses

Mating systems and parental care are some of the most variable social traits. The project uses vertebrate diversity to understand the evolution of breeding system variation in fishes, amphibians, reptiles birds and mammals. Read more

Winter in the city - effects of urbanization and anthropogenic feeding on a temperate zone hibernator

We are looking for a strong candidate interested in doing a PhD on how hibernators cope in urban habitats. We are currently observing a rapid decline in biodiversity across the world, with urbanization among the main drivers of species loss, but we are yet to fully understand its effects on animal survival and health.
