About the Project

The Environmental Science Research Centre (MMU-ESRC) at Manchester Metropolitan University offers up to four fully funded PhD studentships (RCUK-matched stipend of £14,057 and MMU UK/EU PhD student fees of £4,052, both per annum for 2015/16, plus some research expenses), for a January 2016 start.

Interested applicants should liaise directly with the PhD project Director of Studies to obtain further details on the project.

Reference number: MMU-ESRC 2015-04

This project will combine national-scale models of bird and noise distribution with controlled field experiments on individual birds testing behavioural effects, and will culminate in a predictive model of the impacts of urban noise on birds. This policy-relevant project, a collaboration between the British trust for Ornithology and MMU, will greatly increase understanding of impacts of urban noise on biodiversity.
