  PhDs in Regional Economic and Social Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research focuses on issues of social and economic disadvantage as experienced by places and people. We invite applications for research study in any of our research strengths, which include.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Population ecology in a changing world.
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of population ecology and demographic modelling. Our research tackles problems at the pure and applied ends of the spectrum.
  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  Future fens: using palaeoecology to inform restoration and conservation of the Lincolnshire Fenlands
  Dr R Johnston, Dr K Selby, Mr D Bromwich
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust conserve and seek to restore Lincolnshire’s last vestiges of fenland. The restored habitats contribute to healthy functioning ecosystems and an environment more resilient to climate change.
  Parasite communities in the wild: passengers or drivers?
  Dr D Childs, Prof A Fenton, Dr A Pedersen
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Parasites are ubiquitous in natural systems, and although they can have significant negative effects on host fitness, their observed impacts are often weak or undetectable.
  Adventures in carbon neutral farming: mitigating potent greenhouse gas emissions from soils with rock dust
  Prof D Beerling, Dr U Skiba, Dr M Val Martin, Dr D Epihov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale and importance. As Greta Thunberg reminds us, the world faces a climate emergency and addressing global climate change is one of the greatest and most urgent challenges facing humanity.
  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
