  Functional biology and ecology of aquatic fungi (CUNLIFFEPMBA19ARIES)
  Dr M Cunliffe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Fungi are well established as important components of aquatic ecosystems, however the functional roles that they fulfil remain poorly understood (Grossart & Rojas-Jimenez 2016).
  Ecosystem services associated with aquatic plants in urban landscapes
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Current projections of urbanisation predict that between 2000 and 2030 the extent of urban areas will increase by an estimated 185%, representing a considerable threat to biodiversity and complex challenges for urban planners and conservationists alike (Hassall, 2014).
  Natural adaptation of extremophile microalgae to acid mine drainage environments through experimental evolution
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Pollution from waste-streams such as abandoned mine sites is a major environmental problem that has deleterious consequences for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - The electric ecology of freshwater habitats
  Prof D Robert, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Essential to all biomes, freshwater is put under pressure by urbanisation and human populations, by demands of intensive agriculture, and various damages incurred through anthropogenic pollution.
  Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in aquatic environments: exploring an untapped source of genetic information (MOCKUENV19ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout, Prof V Moulton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
DNA outside of cells may account for the largest fraction of total DNA in many environments such as the oceans and their sediments.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Temperature variation and risk modelling of endangered aquatic species
  Dr K Cuddington
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
In collaboration with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Natural Resources Canada, the candidate will analyze variance of temperature data for North America and use this information to access risks for endangered aquatic species.
  Sensitivity of aquatic insect eggs to elevated fine sediment and phosphate concentrations in rivers
  Dr M Johnson, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Insect populations are declining at an alarming rate, globally. Aquatic insects have a crucial functional role in the environment and are used to monitor stream impairment.
  MRes in Investigating the effect of ‘vaping’ flavouring fluids on lung epithelial cells and the fresh water crustacean Daphnia magna - Project ID SAS0037
  Dr S Vass, Dr S Rueckert
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The use of electronic cigarettes or ‘vaping’ devices has dramatically increased in recent years. The number of users in the UK was estimated to be 2.9 million in 2016 (ASH, 2017).
  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
