  Variable Stiffness Actuation for Bioinspired Underwater Vehicle Design
  Dr F Giorgio-Serchi, Dr A Stokes
Applications accepted all year round
Research Background of the Project. Fish and other aquatic organisms propel themselves by performing various types of flapping foil routines.
  Effects of water chemistry on the exposure risk for pharmaceuticals, including antibiotics, Biosceinces – PhD (Funded)
  Prof C R Tyler, Dr S Pagliara
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with AstraZeneca, is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Changes to prescribing – evaluation of likely impacts on the aquatic environment and AMR potential
  Dr K Helwig, Dr C Hunter, Dr J Spencer
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
SCEBE-19-019. After consumption, pharmaceutical residues are excreted by patients, not fully removed in wastewater treatment works, and thus enter the aquatic environment, where they pose a risk to aquatic organisms through chronic exposure.
  BBSRC-iCase project: Application of Molecular Tools to Update aquatic Ecotoxicology Monitoring
  Dr K Gough, Dr T Dottorini, Dr R Emes
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Metabarcoding, using the latest deep sequencing technology, is revolutionising how we assess biological communities. This inter-disciplinary studentship project aims to develop a completely novel application of this technology.
  Metaproteomics Approaches to Uncover Ecosystem Function in Aquatic Environments
  Dr J Pandhal, Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round
Recently, it has become increasingly apparent that quantifying the molecular cellular components (e.g. DNA, mRNA, proteins and metabolites) in environmental samples can reveal significant information on ecosystem function.
  Understanding cholera pandemics
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger, Dr P A Lund
Applications accepted all year round
Vibrio cholerae is the causative agent of Cholera. Millions of cases of the disease occur every year and these are responsible for $3.1 billion dollar financial losses.
  Developing Ecologically acceptable Sediment targets for chalk rivers
  Prof D A Sear, Dr PJ Shaw, Prof A Collins, Mr T Sykes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Fine sediment accumulation in the gravel beds of chalk streams is a key reason for failure under the Water Framework and Habitats Directives, impacting salmonid spawning success, and macro-invertebrate and macrophyte communities (richness and abundance).
  Microbial sunscreens for better life
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr V Stavros, Dr C Corre, Dr S Habershon
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Overview. Cases of cosmeceuticals interfering with marine life are now widespread. This is largely due to increasing societal trends towards exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from sunlight.
  Antibiotics removal from wastewater using microalgae
  Dr A Escudero, Dr J Roberts, Dr C Hunter
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
SCEBE-19-020. The ability of disease causing and other bacteria to render current antibiotics ineffective due to acquiring antibiotic resistance (AMR) is predicted to kill 10 million people every year by 2050 without action.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
