  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.
  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.
  From molecules to populations: the genomic legacy of historic pollution on freshwater fish
  Dr K Elmer
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Dr. K.R. Elmer, Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine, University of Glasgow,. Dr. W. Yeomans, Clyde River Foundation,.
  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).
  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.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  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.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT: Defining nutrient sources and fluxes driving lowland drinking water reservoir ecosystem response
  Prof P Johnes
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Nutrient enrichment of surface freshwaters is the single largest stressor on freshwater ecosystems and the services they provide, throughout the developed world.
  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.
  Impacts of El Nino Costero on fishing and fisher communities in Peru
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Prof ND Laurie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major impact on fishery production in the Humboldt Current off Peru, so much so that El Nino years are readily apparent in downward dips in annual time series of global fish catch.
