PhD Studentships: Differential Susceptibility to Copper in Wild Populations of Three-Spined Stickback (GASTEROSTEUS ACULEATUS)

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Lauren Laing University of Exeter Supervisor(s): Eduarda Santos & Rod Wilson Most aquatic environments in the UK and worldwide have been affected by anthropogenic environmental stressors. Such stressors vary from chemical pollution to habitat fragmentation and to changes in abiotic parameters such as temperature and dissolved oxygen or carbon dioxide. Populations of fish inhabiting these […]

PhD Studentships: Fish Ecology of Mesophotic Coral Reef Ecosystems

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Dominic Andradi-Brown University of Oxford Supervisor(s): Alex Rogers (Oxford) and Dan Exton (Operation Wallacea) Mesophotic coral reef ecosystems (MCE) occur in tropical regions extending from 30 m to the limit of the photic zone, c. 150 m. These reefs are often connected to shallow coral reef ecosystems, where it is suggested they provide an important […]

PhD Studentships: Assessing and predicting the impacts of non-native fish parasites: From Hosts to Ecosystems

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Josie Pegg Bournemouth University Supervisor(s): Robert Britton and Demetra Andreou The global introduction rate of freshwater fish has doubled in the last thirty years, primarily through fish movements in the aquaculture industry. When fish are moved from their natural range and introduced into a new range, they are likely to be host to a number […]

PhD Studentships: The effects of Different Beta-Glucans on fish microflora: Immunomodulation and disease protection

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Sarah Harris Keele University Supervisor(s): Dave Hoole, Mark Skidmore and Dieter Steinhagen There is ever increasing pressure on fish populations to meet the demands placed on them both as a food source and an economic commodity. Aquaculture plays a significant role in reducing the need to rely on wild populations, thus helping species that have […]

PhD Studentships: Reef Structural Complexity and the Dwindling Habitat for Diverse Caribbean Fish Communities

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Charlie Dryden Newcastle University Supervisor(s): Nick Polunin & Steve Newman Scleractinian corals are ‘ecosystem engineers’, providing most of the foundations of the coral reef ecosystem, specifically creating a three-dimensional physical habitat and micro-climatic conditions for a plethora of species and ecosystem services. Corals act as a refuge from predators, provide habitat surfaces for prey and […]

PhD Studentships: Sensory Ecology, Parasites and Mate Choice in the Guppy, POECILIA RETICULATA

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Jessica Stephenson Cardiff University & Bristol University Supervisor(s): Joanna Cable & Gabrielle Archard, & Julian Partridge My research focuses on the way information from different sensory systems (vision and olfaction) interact to inform animal decisions. I am using the guppy-gyrodactylid model system to test how parasitism affects this interaction in a mate choice context. In […]

PhD Studentship: A Genomic approach to the Genetic Impact of an Invasive Congener on a threatened native pond fish

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Daniel Jeffries University of Hull & Cefas-Lowestoft Supervisor(s): Bernd Hänfling, Lori Lawson-Handley & Gordon Copp Research on invasive species and invaded communities is essential to understanding and predicting biodiversity change. Furthermore, introduced species are excellent model systems with which to address fundamental questions in biology. However, biological invasions can have dramatic impacts on native species […]
