  "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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
