Ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

We have 73 Ecology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in the UK

Deciphering the mechanistic drivers of plant-microbe feedback

The soil microbial pool is an untapped reservoir of genetic diversity. In soil, plants form relationships with microbial consortia that aid in nutrient acquisition, plant defence, and general healthy functioning of the plant. Read more

Predicting the roles of anadromy and freshwater carry-over effects in the sustainability of threatened brown trout Salmo trutta populations

This PhD is based on developing new understandings on the ecology and conservation of brown/sea trout Salmo trutta. This is because human activities in freshwaters are driving major and unsustainable declines in freshwater biodiversity, with population reductions of over 80% since the 1970s. Read more

Predators and lowland wading birds: from models to management

This project will give conservation organisations knowledge and tools to conserve key endangered bird species by creating the first multispecies bird-predator model to predict predation impacts and the effectiveness of alternative management regimes to minimise these impacts. Read more

Molecular basis and ecological significance of Saccharomyces wine yeast interactions with microbes, plants and insects

​​This research involving Saccharomyces cerevisiae provides an excellent training that will equip the graduate with highly transferable skills, relevant in other ‘yeast’ labs or biological systems. Read more

Health and wellbeing in an endangered non-human primate across an anthropogenic gradient

Project summary  . This exciting opportunity integrates conservation management and animal wellbeing, using non-invasive biomarkers of health and welfare, to assess the impact of anthropogenic disturbance in an endangered non-human primate. . Read more

Population genomics of insect communities

Declines in insect populations and species are arguably one of the most concerning symptoms of the biodiversity crisis, given their importance in underpinning food webs and ecosystem processes. Read more

The impact of bottom trawling on seabed ecosystem functioning

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
Marine sediments harbour significant levels of biodiversity that play a key role in ecosystem functions and services such as biogeochemical cycling, carbon storage and the regulation of climate. Read more

Self funded MSc by research or PhD in Biology: Paratransgenesis for leishmania

Lead supervisor: Dr D Jeffares (Dept of Biology). Co-Supervisor: Dr Sean Meaden and Dr Paul Fogg (Dept of Biology). The student will be registered with the Department of Biology. Read more

Investigating the effect of plastics recycling on nanoplastic production in packaging applications

Nanoplastics, defined as plastic particles measuring less than 1000 nanometres, have emerged as a significant concern due to their ability to infiltrate ecosystems, posing potential risks to the environment. Read more
