  ONE Planet - Data-Centric Management Strategies for Fish Ecology in Scotland (OP20204)
  Dr C Oates
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) liaises with operators and owners of legacy assets to improve the ecological continuity of the river network in Scotland.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bridging ecology and technology: Using citizen science and artificial intelligence to track fish health
  Dr S Perkins, Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crucial to conservation and management of wild fisheries are data on fish distribution and their disease status. Anglers have reported an increasing burden of welfare issues, particularly for those prominent skin pathogens which cause skin lesions, and are often a key indicator of general health.
  Using physiology to generate novel control measures and management strategies for ectoparasite outbreaks in freshwater trout fisheries. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Prof R W Wilson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Rod Wilson, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Understanding and predicting the success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini, Dr G Bocedi, Dr P Prodohl, Prof J Travis
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, are a major driver of environmental change that may lead to the extinction of local biodiversity, alter ecosystem services and cause huge economic damage.
  Antibiotic exposure impacts on fish health in natural freshwaters. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Professor Charles Tyler, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: Testing for adaptive changes in the microbiome of sticklebacks in relation to geothermal heating
  Dr K Parsons, Dr I Somorjai, Prof C Selman
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

  PhD in Applied Ecology - Developing data-driven modelling in Applied Ecology
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a changing world and a challenge for ecologists is to forecast how such changes will impact on natural populations. We tackle problems such as forest management, weed invasions and predicting the impacts of land management on populations of plants, insects and birds.
  Adapting to life in an increasingly acid world: understanding tolerance to acidic waters in populations of trout (Salmo trutta). PhD in Biosciences(NERC FRESH).
  Dr J R Stevens
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) provides a world-class doctoral research and training environment, for the next generation of interdisciplinary freshwater scientists equipped to tackle future global water challenges.
