NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Bacterial fish pathogens: threats for fisheries and the environment

Freshwater fish are amongst the most highly threatened animals with fish stocks in global decline. Around 95% of the rivers in Wales are now categorised at risk for salmonids, with most salmon stocks in England and Wales in a highly depleted state. Read more

Automated prediction of health and welfare in captive fish using behaviour from video

This project aims to develop a new approach to assessing and predicting poor health and welfare in captive fish, with potential application in aquaculture, laboratories and aquariums to help inform management decisions. Read more

Linking penguins, seals and whales to layers, schools and swarms: using echosounding to explore common themes for predator-prey interaction in the watercolumn.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Deep-diving air-breathing predators such as king penguins and elephant seals face an almost daily challenge of finding prey at depth (including krill and fish that may live hundreds of metres deep). Read more

EASTBIO Do fish cooperate to inspect predators?

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
BACKGROUND. Cooperation is a fundamental process of life, ranging from bacterial interactions to human nations. Cooperation can take various forms, including foraging, reproduction and defence. Read more

What does it take to survive in the future ocean? A comparative study on the adaptive potential of fish to ocean acidification.

Project Rationale. To truly understand the effects of climate change, in particular ocean acidification (OA), on marine fish we need to move away from measuring effects on single species and towards a more holistic understanding, both at the physiological as well as the molecular level. Read more

Effects of seabird nutrient inputs on the productivity of coral reef fish communities

How coral reefs can sustain their extreme biomass of large reef fishes has continued to puzzle scientists. By living fast and dying young, small, bottom-dwelling (‘cryptobenthic’) reef fishes have been suggested as an important part of coral reef productivity, fuelling the foodweb. Read more

A cellular understanding and mathematical modelling of forebrain evolution

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (King’s College London). Read more

EASTBIO - Structural and biological characterisation of a novel virulence mechanism in Gram-negative pathogens

Gram-negative pathogens are responsible for major disease problems in humans and animals, and a better understanding of the mechanisms for how these bacteria cause infections is key to identify more effective ways to prevent and treat outbreaks. Read more
