  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Learn state of the art chronological tools in one of the most dynamic archaeological environments in Asia. Aims. Mongolia has been the most rapidly developing archaeological territory in Eastern Eurasia.
  QUADRAT DTP: Climate Change in the Medieval Northern World and its impact on Respiratory Health
  Dr R Crozier, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wealth of research using (Greenlandic) ice sheet cores, dendrochronology and dinoflagellate cysts have identified a period of profound climate change in medieval Europe.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland
  Prof M Oxenham, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in general, and climate in particular, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can also have catastrophic effects for human health.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  QUADRAT DTP: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
  QUADRAT DTP: Mitigating the impacts of environmental change on cultural heritage using drone-based survey techniques
  Dr G Noble, Dr P Gleeson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the increasing effects of climate change, archaeological sites in coastal regions are increasingly under threat by coastal or fluvial erosion, melting permafrost or rising sea levels (Masselink and Russell 2013).

  Resilience of human interactions with new landscapes (ESR 13)
  Prof J Wainwright, Dr L Turnbull-Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As human populations have settled landscapes in the past, they have changed the vegetation and surface characteristics in ways that have often led to a change in the stability of those landscapes (Wainwright, 2015).

  Dr G Plunkett, Dr K Britton
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental alteration in the nitrogen cycle during the Bronze Age in Ireland has been identified through isotope analysis of wild and domesticated faunal remains and attributed to intensified land management during this time (Guiry et al.
