  Can microplastic pollution in freshwaters disrupt invertebrate mediated nutrient cycling?
  Dr R Quilliam, Dr E Lahive
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research in the field of environmental pollution and toxicology, microplastics and freshwater ecology.
  PhD Studentship in The fate and impacts of microplastics in freshwater systems
  Dr T Bond, Dr M Felipe-Sotelo, Dr D Lapworth
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
It has been estimated there are between 5 and 50 trillion plastic particles on the surface of the ocean. Microplastics are typically defined as particles.
  Ecological impacts of microplastic pollution in freshwater habitats
  Dr D Green, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Effect of species range shifts on trophic networks in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As climates warm in the 21st century, many species are shifting their geographic distributions towards higher latitudes and elevations.
  Correlative microscopic analysis of uptake, localisation and transformations of nanoscale particles in freshwater foodwebs
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The potential for human exposure to manufactured nanoparticles (NPs) has increased in recent years, in part through their incorporation into a wide range of commercial goods and medical applications.
  SCENARIO: The fate and impacts of microplastics in freshwater systems
  Dr T Bond, Dr M Felipe-Sotelo, Dr D Lapworth
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Microplastics can enter freshwater systems from a variety of sources, including littering and sewage effluent.
  Plastics and the hidden majority – microplastics and the conservation implications for a threatened UK freshwater fish
  Dr C Bull, Dr E Lahive, Dr R Quilliam, Prof N J Willby
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to carry out this exciting PhD project that will provide interdisciplinary research opportunities across aquatic ecosystem processes, behavioural ecology, ecotoxicology and conservation management.
  From molecules to populations: the genomic legacy of historic pollution on freshwater fish
  Dr K Elmer
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Dr. K.R. Elmer, Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine, University of Glasgow,. Dr. W. Yeomans, Clyde River Foundation,.
  MRes in Understanding the drivers of biodiversity potential in urban ponds
  Dr R Briers, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Urban freshwater ecosystems are similarly often characterised as impacted and with limited biological life. Throughout the last century however, urban water quality has been improving, with concomitant changes in biological diversity.
  The fate of microplastics accumulating at groundwater-surface water interfaces
  Prof S Krause, Dr I Lynch, Prof G Sambrook Smith
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The transport, fate and behaviour of MPs have been studied predominantly in marine ecosystems, with severe knowledge gaps remaining in freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems (Klein et al., 2015; Wagner et al., 2014; Windsor et al., 2018).
