  "Are we there yet?" Quantifying progress of invasive non-native species eradication using spatial capture-recapture and pedigree reconstruction.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
Invasive non-native species (INNS) threaten biodiversity world-wide. In Scotland, introduced mammals including American mink, hedgehogs, grey squirrels and stoats damage multiple SPA or SAC designated areas.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Joint Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics of Dispersal and Female Multiple Mating: Empirical Test
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  Offshore Energy and Sustainable Marine Ecosystems: A Bayesian Approach to Cumulative Effects Assessment
  Dr B E Scott, Dr N D Trifonova, Dr J H Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
To avoid catastrophic climate change the world needs to switch to renewable energy. This will require the placement and operation of very large offshore windfarms (fixed and floating) as well as tidal stream, lagoons and wave energy developments.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Testing the trade-off between somatic maintenance and reproductive investment as driver of ageing with long-lived predator owls facing variable environmental conditions.
  Prof X Lambin
Applications accepted all year round
How many offspring to produce, how often to reproduce and over how many years are key life history traits that describe the rate of living of organisms [1].
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Environmental impact of Decommissioning: Quantifying Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Hastings
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
There are many offshore structures and installations used for the extraction of oil and gas and for renewable energy with a limited life that have to be decommissioned, a process governed by international and UK laws and regulation.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of native marine organisms as well as potentially aiding the spread of non-native invasive species.
  Developing aesthetic heuristics to leverage more ‘insightful’ data visualisations for better business decisions.
  Dr F Carroll, Dr E Chew
Application Deadline: 8 May 2019
The way data is displayed can drastically change the understanding of the data and the decisions being made from this data. With a few exceptions, data has no natural visualisation so important choices have to be made about how it should be displayed.
