  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.
  Understanding urban trees: form, function and vulnerability
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Prof C P Osborne, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than half the global population already live in urban areas and that figure will rise to 66% by 2020. Ecosystem service provision in urban areas is therefore becoming increasingly important for people’s quality of life and the wider environment, to which urban trees make a disproportionate contribution.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  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.
  Impact of tropical selective logging on avian feeding interactions
  Dr D Edwards, Prof T A Burke, Dr J Hodgson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 400 million hectares of tropical forest -- an area the size of the European Union -- are designated for selective logging. More sustainable practices to manage timber extraction are possible if we understand the biodiversity impacts of logging.
  Flood and drought assessment in a human-dominated water cycle

  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr T Webb, Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste plastic can have a devastating effect on the environment, threatening the biodiversity of our oceans and introducing micro-plastics into the food chain.
  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 D Childs
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.
