Opportunity to study upland stream ecosystems
3rd April 2012
Headwater stream ecosystems are tied closely to their surroundings through physical, geochemical and ecological processes that extend from the riparian zone to the whole catchment. Although of long-standing interest, these linkages are still sketchily understood despite their pivotal importance in the effects of climate and land-use change on stream ecosystem services. Here is an exciting opportunity to study upland stream ecosystems with this three year PhD studentship.
Working on replicate streams in the Llyn Brianne Stream Observatory and linked closely to the NERC-funded £3 million ‘DURESS’ project in Cardiff School of Biosciences, this fully funded studentship will use a blend of unique long-term data, process studies and whole-stream experiments to test hypotheses.
Closing date: 16 April 2012.
Start date: 1 October 2012
