Integrating fisheries biology, economics and risk assessment to tackle the problem of parasites in the fish supply chain (deadline 6 September)
An opportunity has arisen for a multidisciplinary PhD studentship based in Aberdeen and integrated with the EU-funded "PARASITE" project (see 
The project involves: 
. Pre-assessment (understanding the framing and selection rules employed to study this particular risk)
. Providing support for identification of parasites in fish obtained from around the UK. This will lead to statistical models of parasite burdens in fish and potential exposure to consumers.
. Development of a spread-sheet based quantitative risk assessment utilising data from both questionnaires and fisheries surveys. 
. Determining by questionnaire both the concerns and tolerability of the risk.
. Utilise information obtained from other partners in the project on the efficacy, practicality and cost of interventions.
. Prepare and analyse a questionnaire on the "willingness to pay" for reduction of the risk
The student should be keen to develop skills to work in a range of scientific disciplines, interacting with the public, industry and partner institutions in the EU project. 
Funding is available for European/UK students.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to any of the project supervisors as listed below
