  EASTBIO Pre-natal soundscapes: understanding the functional significance of embryonic responses to external sounds
  Prof K Spencer, Prof S Meddle
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pre-natal soundscapes. understanding the functional significance of embryonic responses to external sounds. The avian egg represents a feat of evolutionary engineering, providing all the components required for embryonic growth in a self-contained package.
  A new approach to modelling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV20ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  Impact of tropical selective logging on avian feeding interactions
  Dr D Edwards, Prof T A Burke, Dr J Hodgson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 400 million hectares of tropical forest -- an area the size of the European Union -- are designated for selective logging. More sustainable practices to manage timber extraction are possible if we understand the biodiversity impacts of logging.
  Phenology shifts, gut microbiomes, andfitness consequences in wild birds
  Dr J Schroeder, Dr C Banks-Leite
Application Deadline: 12 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project combines field work with wild birds, some aviary work with the consequences of spring warming. You will learn to handle small animals, conduct quantitative data analyses and (to a limited extend) analyse laboratory data.
  Influenza A virus evolution: Determining the key factors that influence emergence of influenza variants of animal and public health significance
  Dr N Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research aims to understand the complex evolutionary pathways that result in the emergence of influenza virus variants that pose a threat to human and animal health.

  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Adaptations of Antarctic penguins in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr J Younger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Reducing harm to wildlife from rodent pest control strategies
  Prof J Hurst, Prof P Stockley, Prof R Shore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Current strategies to control rodent pests have substantial environmental impact, relying on baits that are highly toxic to vertebrates and attract non-target species such as wood mice, bank voles and field voles.
  Trophic cascades resulting from the re-introduction of island birds
  Dr K C Burns
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half of the avifauna of New Zealand has been driven to extinction following the arrival of humans. Most of what remains is restricted to predator-free offshore islands.
