Optimising high throughput mechanistic ecotoxicology for assessing comparative toxicity across species and chemicals

This collaborative project will use two different, but complementary, methods to study the underlying biology that determines why different chemical pollutants have different effects on diverse species. Read more

Implications of agriculture derived pollution in soil biodiversity

Project Outline. This project is at the intersection of ecotoxicology, biodiversity and agriculture. The project’s novelty is the application of state-of-the-art ecotoxicology methods and genomics to understand the impact and implications of agriculture-derived pollution in soil biodiversity.

Investigating the impacts of plastic use in agriculture on the soil ecosystem. DTP Research Theme(s): Living World, Changing Planet

Project Background  . Agriculture’s intimate relationship with plastic began during the 1960’s, as a cheap and flexible alternative for covering glasshouses and mulch films started being used in commercial crop production. Read more

Effects of neuroactive chemicals on freshwater ecosystems

Project Outline. Although we know neuroactive chemicals are pervasive in the environment, it is a major challenge to understand their effects beyond those at the level of the individual organism. Read more

Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and interdisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research in all aspects of human geography and environmental science, including lab-based, field-based, desk-based and policy-oriented research. Read more

Towards a unified understanding of species invasions along chemical stress gradients

Predicting how ecological systems respond to environmental change is hampered by their inherent complexity — processes operating at one scale of organisation lead to emergent properties at higher levels of organisation. Read more

A geometric framework approach to understand multi-metal toxicity on individual organisms to evaluate relative risks and benefits of pollution and mitigation

Environmental pollution with metals is not exclusive to heavy metals but includes metals essential for life. Organisms have adapted to harvest these often-scarce metals and use them in essential cellular machinery such as superoxide dismutase (e.g. Read more

Our chemical future: a case study of circularity in the wastewater system. NERC DCT ECORISC PhD Studentship for 2023 entry, PhD in Biosciences

Location. Department of Biosciences, Streatham Campus, University of Exeter. . Project Outline. It is rare for chemical pollution and climate change targets to be considered together, but vital if global net zero targets are to be realistically achieved. Read more
