Showing 1 to 10 of 35
  A new approach to modeling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV19ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  A stratospheric bridge linking Arctic sea ice loss to cold European winters (LUUBAS19ARIES)
  Dr Hua Lu, Dr T Bracegirdle, Dr M Joshi, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific Background. Rapid Arctic sea-ice decline has been implicated in causing more frequent extreme cold winters over Northern Europe, including the UK.
  Acoustic Detection of Rainfall using Ocean Gliders in the Tropical Indian Ocean (MATTHEWSAU19NERC)
  Prof A J Matthews, Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in tropical meteorology and oceanography, as part of the NERC-funded TerraMaris project.
  Assessing the breadth and depth of heatwave impacts on reproduction across insect systems (GAGEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin, Dr A Franco
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Earth’s climate is changing, and heatwaves are becoming more frequent and extreme. Biodiversity is responding to these changes by shifting ranges, declining and going extinct, but the proximate drivers remain poorly understood.
  Can ocean gliders improve our ocean forecast models? (HALLUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Dr R Hall, Dr J Graham
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific Rationale. The shallow seas over continental shelves are an important sink in the global carbon cycle and therefore have a large impact on Earth’s climate.
  Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in aquatic environments: exploring an untapped source of genetic information (MOCKUENV19ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout, Prof V Moulton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
DNA outside of cells may account for the largest fraction of total DNA in many environments such as the oceans and their sediments.
  Community Waste: grassroots innovations for sustainable waste systems and practices (SEYFANGG2U19SF)
  Dr G Seyfang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The challenge of managing and reducing domestic waste is a growing sustainability problem for governments and Local Authorities. Recycling rates are increasing, but this is not enough to address the environmental challenges faced by our throwaway material culture.
  Computer simulations DaisyWord and Gaia: A study on the impact of phenotypic plasticity and gene expression under global warming scenarios (VOOSTERHOUTCU19SF)
  Prof C Van Oosterhout
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The Gaia hypothesis (Lovelock & Margulis 1974) proposes that organisms have a significant effect on the physical and chemical environment on Earth, and that feedback loops between organisms and the environment have evolved that stabilize the environment.
  Democracy in transit: The circulation, adaptation and appropriation of democratic practices in environmental policy (PALLETTHU19SF)
  Dr H Pallett, Dr J Chilvers
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Practices of democratic governance and decision-making have been institutionalised in environmental policy, yet are constantly evolving and travelling, and new democratic practices are continually being developed.
