Understanding environmental adaptability in wild mammalian carnivores: A multidisciplinary perspective

Applications are invited for a funded PhD scholarship that will focus on understanding what factors predict wild mammalian carnivores’ ability to adapt to environmental changes, particularly within the context of rewilding. Read more

Effective biodiversity monitoring of river rewilding projects using eDNA modelling

Applications are invited for a funded PhD studentship assessing the impacts of species re-introduction in river ecosystems using environmental DNA, as part of the University of Hull’s REWILD Research cluster (see “About the research cluster” below for more details of the cluster). Read more

Optimising blue carbon storage in estuaries using rewilding and eco-engineering approaches

Applications are invited for a funded PhD studentship studying blue carbon storage in estuaries using rewilding and eco-engineering approaches, as part of the University of Hull’s REWILD Research cluster. Read more

CRAYCAM: Novel technology for endangered and invasive crayfish management

Background. Invasive non-native crayfish cause US$ 61 million a year in damage and management costs worldwide and pose a severe and increasing threat to native biodiversity as ecologically destructive omnivores and ecosystem engineers. Read more

Plant communities and climbers in degraded and regenerating forest landscapes of Borneo

Tropical forests are becoming increasingly fragmented as a result of land-use pressures. Due to different land-use histories, remnant forests are not created equal; some are more structurally intact than others and this can alter the capacity for a forest to naturally regenerate. Read more

Restoring for a resilient future: Woodland community assembly trajectories in the face of multiple stressors

We seek a numerate, enthusiastic student with a passion for restoring woodland ecosystems and multi-disciplinary research. This project provides a unique opportunity to answer how an overlooked driver, surface-level ozone, influences above- and below-ground restoration trajectories of woodland plant communities. Read more

Understanding the role of nitrogen speciation in controlling the biodiversity of freshwater algal communities

The project. Freshwater ecosystems and the biodiversity they contain are among the most threatened ecosystems globally. Nutrient pollution via excessive inputs of nitrogen and phosphorus is perhaps the most significant pressure acting on these ecosystems. Read more
