  Minimising adverse effects of conservation: Ecological consequences of restoration of salmon carcasses to upland streams (Ref IAP2-18-31)
  Prof N Metcalfe
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Salmon populations are declining and in need of active conservation measures, but how is their freshwater habitat best managed to maximise their survival? The juveniles live in uplands streams that would previously have contained many adult salmon that would have died after spawning, so releasing nutrients into an otherwise nutrient-poor environment.
  Modelling and forecasting of salmon parasites
  Dr T Adams, Prof K Davidson, Dr P Gillibrand
Applications accepted all year round
Salmon aquaculture is a key component of the Scottish economy, and has now seen steady growth over several decades. However, there are several factors limiting further expansion.
  Glass to ceramic transition in sodium solid-state electrolytes
  Prof P Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Glass-ceramics are special materials, whose composition and microstructure can be tailored to deliver the properties of both glass and polycrystalline materials, which include a low coefficient of thermal expansion, optical transparency, machinability and biocompatibility.
  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).
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Quantifying the evolutionary response to anthropogenic selection in migrating species
  Dr J Bolland
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Tracing the effects of human induced selection pressures through the genomes of wild species offers unprecedented insight into the way species evolve and adapt to changing environments.
  In silico modelling of parasite dynamics
  Prof O Jones
Applications accepted all year round
The management of infectious disease is a major concern for conservation of wild fish stocks and is a primary constraint on the viability and sustainability of farmed fish.
  Genetic Analysis of Complex Traits in Autotetraploid Crops including Potato
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Autopolyploidy is a characteristic shared by many important crops including potato, coffee, leek, sugarcane, alfalfa and some economically important aquaculture animals, including Atlantic salmon and trout.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  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.
  Sensitivity of aquatic insect eggs to elevated fine sediment and phosphate concentrations in rivers
  Dr M Johnson, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Insect populations are declining at an alarming rate, globally. Aquatic insects have a crucial functional role in the environment and are used to monitor stream impairment.
