  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Fully-funded ARIES PhD studentship - New statistical models for smartphone-app data on recreational fishing
  Dr E Matechou, Dr M Kalli
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a collaborative project between the University of Kent and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (Cefas https://www.cefas.co.uk/).
  Impacts of El Nino Costero on fishing and fisher communities in Peru
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Prof ND Laurie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major impact on fishery production in the Humboldt Current off Peru, so much so that El Nino years are readily apparent in downward dips in annual time series of global fish catch.
  Assessing the impact of small-scale fisheries on sea turtle populations in the Eastern Mediterranean
  Prof B Godley, Dr A Broderick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Predicting risk and planning mitigation against regional impact from climate change on populations of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpines)
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr E McClymont
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Arctic char have a circumpolar distribution in high boreal, alpine and arctic habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. Many southern populations are stationary in freshwater habitats, but some especially in the north are anadromous (moving between marine and freshwater habitats).
  (BBSRC DTP) Multi-omics Approach to Monitoring Marine Bycatch
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr M Buckley, Dr H Shiels, Dr C Walton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The sustainability of fish within Europe is becoming an increasing concern, with overfishing creating a depletion of fish stocks below maintainable limits.
  Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  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.
  Fantastic fat and the evolution of capital and income breeding strategies in seals
  Dr A Welch, Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aims. Seals are often considered icons for how organisms evolve to adapt to their environment, and they have developed several strategies to finance their breeding attempts.
