  Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Diet and Foraging Ecology of Atlantic Storm Petrels: Geographical, temporal, taxonomic and human-mediated variation
  Dr R Thomas, Prof W Symondson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds are highly sensitive to changes within marine ecosystems. However, most research to date has primarily focused on larger species, typically apex predators.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Keeping habitats connected: Does wildlife mitigation work?
  Dr S Perkins, Dr E Chadwick
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loss of biodiversity due to anthropogenic impacts is one of the major global challenges of our time. Roads can act as barriers, or cause mortality, and in areas where traffic speed/road density are high, roads exert strong negative local impacts on wildlife populations (Forman and Alexander, 1998).
  14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training

Funding Type

PhD Type

14 fully funded studentships - an integrated approach to freshwater bioscience training. Sustaining the World's freshwater ecosystems, while meeting the water demands of a growing population, will require a new brand of intellectually mobile and agile problem solvers.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Competition amongst endemic lizard species on a tropical island (Round Island, Mauritius)
  Prof W Symondson, Dr I Vaughan, Dr P Orozco Ter Wengel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Round Island, Mauritius, hosts a community of rare endemic lizard species. Their environment was cleared of most vegetation by introduced goats and rabbits (now eliminated).
