Biological Sciences PhD studentship
A large grant programme on Characterising the nature, origins and ecological significance of Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) in freshwater ecosystems has recently been funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. This links leading researchers at the universities of Bristol, Bangor, UEA and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. In association with this programme, three PhD studentships are to be funded.
Applications are invited here for one of those PhD studentships, based in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Bangor, and supervised by Dr Nathalie Fenner and Prof. Chris Freeman (Bangor) and Prof. Penny Johnes (Bristol). The successful candidate will have the unparalleled opportunity to work within a truly interdisciplinary community of leading scientists, with expertise in defining the sources and pathways by which C, N and P are created within the landscape, accessed by the biota and moved from source to sea.
