  Fish Spas: The importance of turbulence on stress levels of fish in dynamic environments.
  Dr L Kregting, Prof BS Scott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The coastal marine environment is becoming ever more populated by the placement of infrastructure from industries including oil and gas and more recently the renewable energy sector including wind, wave and tidal energy devices.
  PhD position in Analytical Chemistry / Molecular Biology / Microbiology
  Dr A Joyce
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Diary id. PAR 2018/1615. Employment level. Time limited employment (temporary). Location. Department of Marine Sciences. Apply by.
  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).
  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).
  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Holey hypervolumes! The multivariate geometry of adaptive radiation.
  Dr A MacColl, Dr S Preston
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We seek a maths, physics or engineering graduate with an interest in biology, or a biologist with good mathematical skills, for an exciting, international, interdisciplinary, collaborative PhD to investigate multidimensional variation in the shape (phenotype) of fish, and the ecological characteristics of the environments they inhabit.
  Neurovascular coupling in epilepsy/seizure
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr B J Whalley, Dr M Dallas
Applications accepted all year round
Epilepsy is a serious and debilitating condition characterised by seizure affecting over 100 million people worldwide. In addition to epilepsy, seizure is a symptom associated with over 50% of brain diseases including major neurodegenerative diseases such as vascular dementia and stroke.
