We are seeking a PhD student to research how the mammalian fauna of Egypt have been altered by human activities and climate change over the past 10,000yrs, and what this can tell us about interactions between the environment and society and their role in the development of human culture.
  Unlocking pulse protein: A new look at mechanisms that limit bioaccessibility (EDWARDSQ20DTP)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type
