There are massive amounts of data presented to the internet in real or near-to-real-time that allow monitoring of economic and societal conditions, amongst other things.
  Modelling encounters in surveys of unmarked animal populations
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof D Borchers, Dr R Glennie, Dr M Rowcliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many wild animal populations are monitored by placing detectors (e.g. cameras or microphones) in a study area and recording encounters with individual animals.
  Design of Experiments
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Prof R Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A topic in design of experiments, to be decided between the student and the supervisor. It could focus on methods for constructing particular types of design; methods of, and problems in, randomization; two-phase experiments; experiments in a particular area of application..
  Modelling local population dynamics for whale sharks in the Maldives
