  QUADRAT DTP: Precious metals of the Anthropocene
  Dr T Mighall, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the consequences of metal pollution is of increasing importance given the ever-growing consumption of resources and the increasing sophistication of metallic products, creating new and different types of waste, which is often discarded into the environment (Nriagu, 1990).

  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 22 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.
