  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.
  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  Arctic-and-alpine-river-food-web-response-to-glacier-retreat
  Prof L Brown, Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Climate change poses a considerable threat to the biodiversity of high altitude ecosystems, with Arctic alpine regions across the world already beginning to show clear responses to warming (Milner et al., 2017).
  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.
  Quantifying the impact of beaver reintroduction on aquatic ecology. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Geography
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Elliot Mark, Devon Wildlife Trust. Professor Jim Freer, University of Bristol.
  River ecosystem resilience to changing flow regimes
  Dr M E Ledger, Dr A M Milner
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Water scarcity and drought are among the most pressing environmental issues of the century. River ecosystems, already degraded by excessive water use associated with growing populations, will be further affected by widespread shifts in rainfall patterns where climate change alters natural flow regimes.
  aqAMR: AMR at the interface of the agricultural and aquatic environments
  Dr T Connor, Prof P Kille
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The interface between aquatic systems, agricultural environments involved in livestock farming and human habitation represents, on a microbial ecology level, an interface between microbial populations that are all under different antimicrobial selection pressures.
  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].
  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).
  From catchment to sea: Changes in particles characteristics using novel in situ and space technologies
  Dr E Spyrakos, Prof A N Tyler, Dr M Bowes, Dr G Old
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This studentship provides an exceptional opportunity for an applicant to join a team with internationally recognised expertise in (optical) aquatic biogeochemistry and Earth observation.
