  QUADRAT DTP: The role of sexual selection in facilitating rapid adaptation to climate change
  Dr N Pilakouta, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is arguably the most significant threat to biodiversity in the 21st century. Animal populations are experiencing a period of unprecedented environmental change, leading to higher extinction rates.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  (BBSRC DTP) The physiology and energetics of locomotion in turtles: linking performance from the organismal to the cellular level
  Dr J Codd, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turtles have the most distinctive body plans of vertebrates (1). Turtles appear in the fossil record over 220 million years ago. Turtles are unique among vertebrates in that their whole body is enclosed within a rigid bony shell, composed of the carapace and plastron, that protects from predators.
  Developmental Responses to Environmental Change
  Dr C Mirth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in which animals develop profoundly shapes their morphology and behaviour, a process known as phenotypic plasticity.
  Effects of microplastic on ecosystem services in salt marshes (NOLTESU20SCI50)
  Dr S Nolte, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr A Mayes
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastic (MP) pollution has generated huge scientific and public interest in recent years. Early research mainly focused on the marine environment, studying MP abundance and impacts on fauna.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
