  Climate change impacts on New Zealand Fiordland ecosystems
  Dr A Rogers, Dr J Bell
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global climate change has the potential to increase water temperatures by as much as 2.5C over the next century in some locations, with impacts on species distribution patterns, nutrient levels and primary production.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences 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.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler, Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG), Global Sustainability Institute (GSI). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Conservation management of threatened New Zealand insects
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New Zealand has a global reputation for being at the forefront of threatened species conservation.
  Genomics of African indigenous cattle
  Dr L Frantz, Dr C G Faulkes, Prof S Rossiter
Application Deadline: 23 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from modern and museum cattle samples to unravel their population histories in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  Investigation of the processes that generate, maintain, and threaten biological diversity
  Dr R Riesch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses one of the fundamental questions in evolutionary ecology.
  The scent of Madagascar plovers: communication or concealment?
  Dr B Caspers, Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating systems and parental behaviour are among the most diverse social behaviours, and recent research suggests that the social environment influences these behaviours.
