  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  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.
  “Zooremediation” - a novel strategy to remediate contaminated aquatic environments
  Dr R Quilliam, Dr L Carvalho, Prof N J Willby, Dr D Oliver
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research in the field of environmental pollution, water quality, ecological engineering and bioremediation.
  Plastics and the hidden majority – microplastics and the conservation implications for a threatened UK freshwater fish
  Dr C Bull, Dr E Lahive, Dr R Quilliam, Prof N J Willby
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to carry out this exciting PhD project that will provide interdisciplinary research opportunities across aquatic ecosystem processes, behavioural ecology, ecotoxicology and conservation management.
  Transport, fate and aquatic ecological impact of airport de-icers: a collaborative research project with Heathrow Airport
  Dr R Grabowski, Dr A Medina Vaya
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  Greenhouse gas emissions from human-impacted rivers – identifying ‘hotspots’ from source-to-sea, their drivers and stability.
  Dr A Pickard, Prof S Waldron, Dr U Skiba
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Overview. Inland freshwater systems are sources to the atmosphere of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and as such, their importance in global GHG budgets is increasingly recognised.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  (MERI) 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.
  From catchment to sea: Changes in particles characteristics using novel in situ and space technologies
  Dr E Spyrakos, Prof A N Tyler, Dr M Bowes, Dr G Old
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This studentship provides an exceptional opportunity for an applicant to join a team with internationally recognised expertise in (optical) aquatic biogeochemistry and Earth observation.
  River ecosystem resilience to changing flow regimes
  Dr M E Ledger, Dr A M Milner
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Water scarcity and drought are among the most pressing environmental issues of the century. River ecosystems, already degraded by excessive water use associated with growing populations, will be further affected by widespread shifts in rainfall patterns where climate change alters natural flow regimes.
