  A species under threat - Genomic and phenotypic responses in the European eel to aquatic toxins
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The European eel (Anguilla anguilla) is currently under catastrophic decline across most of its range, the reasons for this remain elusive.
  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Chronology and Changing Cultures on the Mongolian Steppe - QUADRAT
  Dr J Wright, Prof P Reimer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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.
  Does familiarity breed contempt? Seeking coexistence strategies with wolves
  Prof S Redpath, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Large carnivores are challenging to conserve. They kill livestock, threaten human life, instil fear in people, and their presence often leads to conflict between livelihood and conservation interests.
  Does predation drive synchrony in prey dynamics or does prey asynchrony drive predator dynamics? A test using small mammal prey and vertebrate predators in Britain and Ireland.
  Prof X Lambin, Dr N Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Predation is a potent force that can synchronise prey populations as predators shift their attention to more dense, hence, profitable prey.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Flying sentinels: using a long-distance migratory bird to assess exposure to POPs over two continents and their health consequences
  Dr P Bize, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human activities have for side effects the introduction in natural environments of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Multidimensional resilience of fragmented forest patch networks in temperate and tropical environments.
  Prof J Travis, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
How resilient are forests to fragmentation? How can we manage networks of fragmented forest patches to increase their resilience? These are critical ecological questions as almost all forests in temperate and tropical systems have undergone fragmentation or are undergoing fragmentation currently.
