  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.

  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).
  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.
  The Coexistence of Aquaculture and Inshore Fisheries in Scotland: An Ecotoxicological Approach to Establish Potential Contamination
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Capper
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Inshore fisheries are integral to the economy of coastal communities in Scotland and provide a vital societal role continuing a long tradition of fishing heritage.
  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.
  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.
  Structural role of magnesium in glass and glass-ceramics
  Prof P Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Glass and glass-ceramic materials play pivotal roles in science and technology, where attributes such as their strength, transparency and mouldability lead to applications that range from lasers to cover glass.
