  QUADRAT DTP: Energetics and survival of an apex predator - the African lion - in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr D M Scantlebury, Prof J Speakman, Dr C Tambling
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within the animal kingdom, certain species are particularly vulnerable to environmental disturbance, with apex predators being a case-in-point.
  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  QUADRAT DTP: Global profiles of species declines and success in the era of climate change
  Dr D Pincheira-Donoso, Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat, Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The alarming extinctions of species worldwide pose unprecedented challenges for wildlife and human wellbeing [1].
  QUADRAT DTP: Greening cities: how do street trees contribute to urban biodiversity and ecosystem functions?
  Dr P Caplat, Prof D Burslem, Prof G Keeffe
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will investigate the role of an iconic but poorly studied system (street trees) for enhancing urban biodiversity and support ecosystem functions (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Identifying Environmental Factors for Soil Transmitted and Food Borne Helminth Diseases in Border Regions of Northern Thailand
  Dr G Gobert, Dr S Telfer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasitic worm infections (helminthiases) of humans greatly impact low to medium income countries such as Thailand, by undermining health and agricultural productivity.
  QUADRAT DTP: Microbial social lives: A multi-scale systems approach to decode microbial metabolic networks
  Dr D Kumaresan, Dr J C Comte, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4), a potent greenhouse gas, is next only to CO2 with a global warming potential of 34.
  QUADRAT DTP: Temperature regulation of crop - rhizosphere ecology
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions and community structure through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  QUADRAT DTP: The effects of maternal stress on offspring survival in the fallow deer
  Dr D Jennings, Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of climate change and human-induced habitat fragmentation has resulted in an unprecedented planet-wide biodiversity crisis.
  QUADRAT DTP: Tropical Marine Biodiversity: Solving the taxonomic bottlenecks to environmental impact assessments
  Dr J Sigwart, Prof J Travis
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transitions in land use require environmental impact assessments (EIA) to allow decision makers to judge relative costs and benefits of development; part of this process relies on identifying species and subsequently determining their risk status.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
