  Quantitative Risk Assessment of Mercury in the Aquatic Environments: Linking Mobility, Bioavailability and Bioaccumulation
  Dr G I Paton, Dr L Mbadugha
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD opportunity to work with leading academics at the National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) and Chevron Corporation to address some of the major questions around the environmental implications of decommissioning energy assets at a number of global locations and provide guidance for optimal decommissioning.
  Digital aquatic play
  Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD opening (HCI, Interaction Design). around the body, technology and play in the Exertion Games Lab, Melbourne, Australia. The Exertion Games Lab (exertiongameslab.org) in Melbourne, Australia, is seeking exceptional PhD and Post-Doc candidates to research novel interfaces around digital play.
  CMEES-WEEG-574: Urban light pollution: understanding impacts on aquatic environments
  Dr A Vowles, Dr P Kemp
Application Deadline: 20 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world has undergone wide-scale urbanisation in recent decades. From 1950-2018 the number of people living in cities grew from 30% to 55%, and this value is projected to increase to 68% by 2050.
  Antimicrobial resistance in marine mammals
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses an urgent Global Challenge – the growing widespread incidence of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). It will be the first to investigate an unreported alarming concern, that wild seals are dying off from AMR bacterial infections and mortality is greater in more polluted waters.
  Modelling and optimising microbial nutrient cycling for the promotion of a circular bioeconomy(Project fully funded for 3.5 years)
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although microbial communities play major biogeochemical roles in all ecosystems, driving carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, they remain only crudely represented in existing biogeochemical models of these systems.
  Impacts of multiple stressors on ecosystem functions of high mountainous streams
  Dr N Wu, Dr D Atkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to understand the interaction among stressors and their consequences on biodiversity and ecosystem functions at high mountainous regions (i.e.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Prof A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Investigation of the environmental implications of decommissioning and the longevity and fate of offshore structures left in place

Funding Type

PhD Type

The National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) and Chevron Corporation have recently signed an Anchor partnership agreement that will fund a research programme to address some of the major questions around the environmental implications of decommissioning energy assets at a number of global locations and provide guidance for optimal decommissioning.
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  Water Quality Monitoring Technology & Robotics
  Dr G Troisi, Dr X Du
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

AquaeyeTM is an autonomous floating aquatic sensor platform with adaptable payload to sense a range of parameters (environmental conditions, chemical and biological hazards) for a variety of applications such as alerting oil spills and toxic algal blooms in bathing waters, pollution and fuel spills in inland waterways, marinas, harbours, shipping lanes and coastal waters.
  Microalgae as an alternative for antimicrobial resistance pressure reduction
  Dr A Escudero
Application Deadline: 2 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
