  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.
  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.
  Dippers (Cinclus cinclus) as bioindicators of health and resilience of freshwater ecosystems in the face of complex ecological change
  Prof N J Willby, Prof K Park, Dr P Taylor
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to undertake research focussing on understanding on river bird responses to environmental change in Britain.
  Variability of CO2 and its impact on biota in natural and anthropogenically impacted freshwater environments,NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Prof R W Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Rod Wilson, Department of Biosciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Ian Armstrong, Pulcea.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The role of life histories and population age structure in the invasion success of alien freshwater fish
  Dr I Capellini
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Alien species, those introduced outside their native range, can cause huge ecological and economic damage. With increasing global trade, the number of new alien species is growing rapidly, and identifying which ones will be future invaders is an urgent global challenge.
  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.
  School of Geographical and Earth Sciences - Applying AI to Determine How Lake Ecosystems Respond to Extreme Events
  Prof J Toney, Dr C Miller
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science (BECS) research group at the University of Glasgow is looking to recruit an excellent PhD student to apply advanced statistical and computing techniques to large environmental datasets with an aim to identify ecosystem responses to abrupt and extreme environmental change.
  Dangerous liaisons: the relationships between algal blooms and human pathogens in freshwaters
  Dr D Oliver, Dr L Carvalho, Dr P Hunter, Dr R Quilliam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research linking across freshwater ecology and applied microbiology in the context of integrated catchment management.
  Diagnosing the reasons for biodiversity decline in rural rivers
  Dr I Vaughan
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Rivers are biodiversity hotspots, but are subject to manifold pressures such as abstraction, pollution and impoundment, and have some of the highest extinction rates of any ecosystem [1].
  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.
