  Fresh Blue Carbon: The control of freshwater carbon emissions by pelagic food webs
  Dr T Cameron, Dr C Whitby
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisory Team. Dr Tom Cameron ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex. Dr Corinne Whitby ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
  Using environmental DNA to understand the role of connectivity in pond ecosystems
  Dr D Read, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The majority of freshwater habitats are small in scale, comprising ponds and low-order streams, ditches and springs. Collectively these represent the largest resource of freshwater habitats across the UK and provide a heterogeneous network of resources for a wide diversity of freshwater and terrestrial organisms.
  Ecosystem services associated with aquatic plants in urban landscapes
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Current projections of urbanisation predict that between 2000 and 2030 the extent of urban areas will increase by an estimated 185%, representing a considerable threat to biodiversity and complex challenges for urban planners and conservationists alike (Hassall, 2014).
  Investigating selection for antimicrobial resistance by non-antibiotic drugs in freshwater microbial communities, NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Medical Sciences
  Dr A Murray
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Dr Aimee Murray, European Centre for Environment and Human Health, University of Exeter Medical School. Additional Supervisors.
  Shellfish responses to global environmental change – implications for aquaculture and marine conservation
  Dr M Steinke, Dr T Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisory Team. Dr Michael Steinke ([email protected]) – School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex. Dr Tom Cameron ([email protected]) – School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
  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.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - The electric ecology of freshwater habitats
  Prof D Robert, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Essential to all biomes, freshwater is put under pressure by urbanisation and human populations, by demands of intensive agriculture, and various damages incurred through anthropogenic pollution.
  Natural adaptation of extremophile microalgae to acid mine drainage environments through experimental evolution
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Pollution from waste-streams such as abandoned mine sites is a major environmental problem that has deleterious consequences for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems throughout the world.
  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).
  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.
