  Exploring fish cognition using moveable fish tanks
  Dr A Taylor
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship, based in the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland, to begin in 2019.
  What is the role of discarding in the dynamics of the demersal fish community of the Firth of Clyde?
  Dr R Cook, Dr L Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
his fully-funded studentship will remain open only until filled, and so we recommend applying immediately. The Firth of Clyde has notoriously been referred to as an ‘ecological desert’ having been intensively overfished (Thurstan and Roberts, 2010).
  Developing and testing models for the assessment of fish and scallops in the Clyde
  Dr D C Speirs, Prof M Heath, Dr P Boulcott
Applications accepted all year round
This fully-funded studentship will remain open only until filled, and so we recommend applying immediately. Mathematical models play a central role in determining the population size of fish and other marine organisms that are caught for human consumption.
  Promoting Healthy Fish in Aquaculture by Genome-Wide Functional Annotation of Immune Responses
  Prof S Martin, Dr D Macqueen
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
Aquaculture is the fastest growing food sector globally, and this expansion will continue in future years alongside the rising human population.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  The effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA, “fish oils”), on vascular and potassium channel function
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round
There is a large body of evidence that consumption of oily fish or supplementation of fish oils leads to improvements in cardiovascular heath (as well as other health benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects).
  Fishscapes and Fish as Biocultural Heritage - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof P Coates
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Within the wider theme of nature as heritage and operating with the notion of the animalscape, this project explores the status of certain anadromous and catadromous fish (for example, salmon, eel and lamprey) as cultural as well as ecological keystone species.
  Bio-inspired high-efficient arrays of tidal energy converters
  Dr IM Viola
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
The UK tidal sector has recently achieved remarkable progress, including deploying the first two arrays of tidal turbines (Nova Innovation and MeyGen) and deploying the world’s largest twin-rotor floating tidal turbine (Scotrenewable).
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round
he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
