  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: 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.
  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).
  And along came two spider genomes: Investigating the developmental consequences of whole genome duplication in spiders

  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Microbiology and ecology of microbes in our rivers - their niche distribution and functional implications
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
