This project is funded through an RCUK CASE studentship, with CASE funding being provided by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas). The post is open to Home (UK) and EU students only. The project is due to start in October 2017. Informal enquiries should be made to Dr Barber. The deadline for formal applications will be advised shortly.
