  PhD Studentship applications 2019
The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) call for PhD Studentship applications 2019. The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) offers up to two competitively awarded MPhil/PhD studentships annually.
  Minimising adverse effects of conservation: Ecological consequences of restoration of salmon carcasses to upland streams (Ref IAP2-18-31)
  Prof N Metcalfe
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Salmon populations are declining and in need of active conservation measures, but how is their freshwater habitat best managed to maximise their survival? The juveniles live in uplands streams that would previously have contained many adult salmon that would have died after spawning, so releasing nutrients into an otherwise nutrient-poor environment.
  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 poly unsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA, “fish oils”), on vascular function
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr B J Whalley, Dr M Dallas
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).
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Runaway sexual selection- catching the genes.
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Sexual selection has generated an incredible amount of biodiversity. The idea that exaggerated male traits and female choice for those traits become associated to produce runaway sexual selection is widely accepted.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  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).
  CDT-SIS-541: Evaluating microplastic contamination in fishmeal
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr M Hudson, Prof I Williams
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Microplastics have emerged as a major environmental problem over recent years. Plastic litter and microplastics are ubiquitous in the marine environment- present in water and sediments, and taken up by marine creatures.
  Spawning habitat characteristics of lithophilic fish – using experimental approaches to inform river restoration
  Dr P Wood, Dr D Ryves, Dr A Pledger
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.
