  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Is a trophic cascade framework useful for predicting the outcome of rewilding in plantation forests?
  Prof X Lambin, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rewilding is a novel approach to conservation that captures the public’s imagination and focuses on ecosystem processes rather than necessarily restoring a system to its antecedent state.
  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  QUADRAT DTP: Functional parasite epigenomics and transcriptomics for improving honey-bee health in a global pollination crisis
  Dr M Wenzel, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pollination is an immensely important ecosystem service that not only contributes to maintaining biodiversity in wild ecosystems but is also indispensable for meeting ever-increasing demands on agriculture to sustain global food security.
  QUADRAT DTP: How do biotic interactions shape the response of species to climate change across temperate and tropical biomes? A global study on damselflies (Odonata: Zygoptera)
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Freshwater habitats cover a relatively small area of the globe, yet harbour disproportionally high biodiversity. Climate change is currently dramatically impacting freshwater systems via more extreme drought and flooding, altered patterns of snowmelt, and via increasing air and water temperatures.
  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’.
  QUADRAT DTP: Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  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.
  Immunogenetic Status of Salmonid Populations in Scotland
  Prof S Piertney, Dr M Wenzel, Dr D Morris, Dr J Gilbey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genetic integrity of wild salmon in Scotland is being challenged by interaction with escaped farmed fish.
