PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts

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. Read more

Population ecology in a changing world.

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. Read more

Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring. Read more

Algal Bioplastics

Single use plastic is a major environmental concern that is urgently in need of innovative solutions. Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms that can be employed to develop processes that are environmentally sustainable. Read more

Microalgal Biorefineries

A major contemporary challenge in industrial manufacturing is the development of sustainable production processes. This includes reduced resource consumption and CO2 generation, and energy efficient operations with maximised product outputs. Read more

Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys

Soil degradation is a major global threat to agricultural sustainability. Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure and depleted populations of soil organisms. Read more

PhD in Palynology

Professor Charles Wellman supervises self-funded Ph.D. research projects in Palynology hosted by the Centre for Palynology. These can encompass taxonomic, biostratigraphical or palaeoenvironmental (palynofacies) analysis. Read more

PhD in evolutionary biology - modelling the evolution of interactions between species

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution. Read more
