  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.
  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.
  Evolutionary responses of Daphnia spp. to biophysical disruption in tropical lake systems
  Dr D Ryves, Prof J Anderson, Dr L Orsini, Dr S Mills
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.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  Engaging Fishers to Understand and Conserve Sawfish in Queensland
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr M Bell
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Sawfishes are a family of rays that occur in coastal, estuarine and freshwater habitats in tropical and subtropical regions. This PhD project focuses on engaging commercial and recreational fishers in conservation efforts to protect the four endangered species that are known in the waters of Queensland, Australia.
  River water temperature: understanding river thermalscapes, driving mechanisms and ecological responses
  Prof D M Hannah, Dr S J Dugdale, Dr I A Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round
Water temperature is the ‘master’ river habitat variable, controlling physico-chemical and biological processes within river systems.
  (MERI) 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.
  Assessing the Impact of Environmental Contaminants in the Kruger National Park, South Africa: From Sediments to Crocodiles
  Dr L Yon, Prof M Johnson
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
This project will explore the presence and bioaccumulation of organic and inorganic contaminants along the Olifants River system in South Africa, and their impact on wildlife health both outside and within Kruger National Park (KNP).
  Plasticiser in the UK terrestrial environment: Occurrence and bioaccumulation?
  Dr D Spurgeon, Prof K C Jones, Dr M G Pereira
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Researchers and the public are aware of the potential issues of plastic pollution. Images of birds, mammals and other charismatic species entangled in and eating plastics have created great concern about our profligate plastic use.
