  Ecology of Dynamic Seasonal Salt Lakes
  Dr V Louca, Prof F Kuepper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seasonal salt lakes present extreme environments, often characterised by low levels of biodiversity and relatively simple food webs.
  Immune Responses to Salivary Biomarkers as Tools to Understand the Epidemiology of Vector Borne Diseases
  Dr J Sternberg, Dr A Bowman
Applications accepted all year round
