  Atlantic woodland health: long-term interactions between climate, ecology and management
  Dr E Tisdall, Dr A Davies, Dr R Streeter
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Forest health is a growing, international concern, with most attention focused on climatic drivers and regions with large tracts of forest cover.
  Can microplastic pollution in freshwaters disrupt invertebrate mediated nutrient cycling?
  Dr R Quilliam, Dr E Lahive
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019

  Creating “Climate-smart” soils to optimize carbon sequestration through land management
  Dr J Subke, Dr M Garnett, Dr M Perks, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Background. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2018) recently outlined the clear case for reducing net CO2 emissions globally.
  Dangerous liaisons: the relationships between algal blooms and human pathogens in freshwaters
  Dr D Oliver, Dr L Carvalho, Dr P Hunter, Dr R Quilliam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research linking across freshwater ecology and applied microbiology in the context of integrated catchment management.
  From catchment to sea: Changes in particles characteristics using novel in situ and space technologies
  Dr E Spyrakos, Prof A N Tyler, Dr M Bowes, Dr G Old
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This studentship provides an exceptional opportunity for an applicant to join a team with internationally recognised expertise in (optical) aquatic biogeochemistry and Earth observation.
  Navigating fragmented tropical landscapes; understanding how forest fragmentation affects bird behaviour
  Dr D Dent, Dr S G Willis
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Over the last century much of the tropical forest biome has been converted from continuous tracts of undisturbed forest to complex human-modified landscapes composed of degraded primary forest fragments, secondary forest, pasture and agricultural land [1,2].
  Plastics and the hidden majority – microplastics and the conservation implications for a threatened UK freshwater fish
  Dr C Bull, Dr E Lahive, Dr R Quilliam, Prof N J Willby
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to carry out this exciting PhD project that will provide interdisciplinary research opportunities across aquatic ecosystem processes, behavioural ecology, ecotoxicology and conservation management.
  Seeing the woods for the trees: do woodland networks benefit biodiversity?
  Prof K Park, Prof J Bullock, Dr Elisa Fuentes-Montemayor, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. The concept of ecological networks, and their focus on landscape-scale conservation, has been promoted globally as a key approach to biodiversity conservation in fragmented landscapes.
  Source to Sea: Soil carbon transport from forested environments to coastal waters (Ref IAP2-18-72)
  Dr C Schroeder, Dr W Austin, Dr C Smeaton, Dr N Shah
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Scotland is a carbon (C) nation with significant stores held in both terrestrial and marine environments. Scotland’s peatlands, for example, hold Europe’s largest organic carbon (OC) reserves, and recent research has shown that Scotland’s sea lochs are even more effective carbon stores [1,2].
