  QUADRAT DTP: Current and past ecology of dynamic seasonal salt lakes and their responses to climate change
  Dr V Louca, Dr H Roe
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Mediterranean region has been experiencing the most severe, long-term drought as a percentage reduction in rainfall, than any other region in the world and climate models predict this to continue.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.

  Dr A Ellison
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two of the greatest barriers to intensification of aquaculture in the Wales, and indeed globally, is infectious disease outbreaks and sustainable, efficient fish nutrition.

  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Environmental degradation of plastics in coastal ecosystems
  Dr O Eyice, Dr K Spencer

  Dr C Whitby, Dr B McKew, Dr T Cameron
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous and persistent environmental pollutants, which can enter the marine environment from many natural and anthropogenic sources.
  Master by Research: Gregarine apicomplexan parasites in freshwater invertebrates
  Dr S Rueckert, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Gregarine apicomplexans are micro-eukaryotic parasites that are found in almost every group of terrestrial, freshwater and marine invertebrates (Leander 2008; Desportes & Schrével 2013).

  Dr R Briers, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Urban freshwater ecosystems are often characterised as impacted with limited biological life. Throughout the last century however, urban water quality has been improving, with concomitant changes in biological diversity.

  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
  Investigation of the utility of a commercial scale Integrated Multi-trophicAquaculture (IMTA) system with salmon, shellfish and seaweed
  Dr T Telfer, Dr S Carboni
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020
