  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Smart Catchments: Utilising in situ sensors to monitor ecosystem health in freshwater catchments
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr R Perkins
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will assess different methods for measuring nutrient fractions in surface water bodies. The student will work with the diverse, multi-disciplinary supervisory team to develop a range of skills to address a real-world problem.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Prof A J Weightman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bridging ecology and technology: Using citizen science and artificial intelligence to track fish health
  Dr S Perkins, Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crucial to conservation and management of wild fisheries are data on fish distribution and their disease status. Anglers have reported an increasing burden of welfare issues, particularly for those prominent skin pathogens which cause skin lesions, and are often a key indicator of general health.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: One man’s meat is another man’s poison: exploring the effect of mass drug administration against schistosomes on the aquatic food web
  Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasites are an integral but under-recognised component of ecosystems. In particular, within food webs they can alter chain length and connectance and, because they act across trophic levels, they can increase web stability.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bacterial fish pathogens: ignored threats for aquaculture and the environment
  Dr C Berger, Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Wales, freshwater fish stocks are in general decline. Around 95% of the rivers are now categorise at risk for salmon stock with most salmon stocks in England and Wales in a depleted state.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Ecological drought risks for stream ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future droughts are predicted to be characterised by hotter temperatures, longer durations and greater spatial extent. Freshwater ecosystems, and particularly upland stream ecosystems, are at risk since climate-derived droughts are likely to combine with increasing human demands for water supply.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Long-term environmental influences on the ecology and conservation of river birds
  Prof S Ormerod, Dr I Vaughan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Covering less than 1% of Earth’s surface, freshwater ecosystems host around 10% of the Earth’s species and a third of all vertebrates.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cryptosporidium movement in water- impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  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 Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2020 covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
