  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].
  Adapting to life in an increasingly acid world: understanding tolerance to acidic waters in populations of trout (Salmo trutta)
  Dr J R Stevens
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. Dr Andrew Griffiths, Dept of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Assessing the water quality of Himalayan glacier-fed rivers
  Dr D Quincey, Prof P Chapman, Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
More than 1.4 billion people depend on water from the rivers of the Himalaya (Immerzeel et al., 2010) and there are more than 6000 rivers flowing from the Himalayan Mountains to the hills and plains in Nepal (CBS, 1995).
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship - High resolution modelling of fate and transport of organic micropollutants and their effect on ecosystems in small rivers
  Prof J Hofman
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering 12 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
  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).
  Sedimentation and invasive species in rivers: Investigation in trialling of mitigation options relevant to invasive non-native species sediment inputs to rivers
  Dr M Klaar, Dr M Smith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Invasive non-native species (INNS) such as Himalayan Balsam and Signal Crayfish are known to cause increased sediment erosion in river ecosystems.
  Adapting to life in metal polluted rivers: implications for conservation, genetic diversity and fisheries management in the brown trout (Salmo trutta). NERC FRESH CDT studentship, Phd in Biosciences
  Dr J R Stevens
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Jamie Stevens, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Rasmus Lauridsen, Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust.
  How does bed topography effect turbulence and flow resistance in rivers?
  Dr J Cooper, Dr J Higham
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. This experimental project aims to develop new understanding of the role of bed topography in the generation of turbulence and flow resistance in gravel-bed rivers.
  Valuing field-scale land management interventions
  Dr T Hess, Dr A Graves
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
