  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: 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.
  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 PhD Studentship: Chlorine reduction wetlands
  Dr J Wenk
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Impacts of multiple stressors on ecosystem functions of high mountainous streams
  Dr N Wu, Dr D Atkinson
Applications accepted all year round

  Drinking water ponds in southern Bangladesh: blending traditional and scientific management approaches
  Dr S McGowan, Dr M Roy
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

We are looking for a student with strong interests in freshwater sciences and complex development problems to work with a large transdisciplinary international team.
  Assessing the diversity, drivers & importance of Megaira, intracellular symbiont of aquatic eukaryotes
  Prof G Hurst, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The biology, ecology and evolution of eukaryotes is in part a product of their symbiotic interactions with microbes. Intracellular microbes, retained during cell division and reproduction, are particularly interesting, as they are selected to maintain and nurture their hosts.
