Folks
We have a 4 year PhD position going for suitably qualified students on the trophic ecology of jellyfish and their interactions with fish as part of the London NERC Doctoral Training Programme. http://london-nerc-dtp.org/2013/11/27/887/

Co supervised by myself, Jon Houghton (Queen's University, Belfast), and Jon Grey, the project aims to improve our understanding of the ecological role of jellyfish in marine ecosystems in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Background: Jellyfish are increasingly seen as negative components of marine ecosystems, but relatively little is known about them, e.g. their trophic ecology. For instance, they are often considered as a single functional group feeding on the same prey throughout their life history, a view which has recently been challenged. Consequently, seasonal or ontogenetic shifts in diet, intra-specific differences in prey types or intra-guild predation is currently typically ignored or downplayed, e.g. in ecosystem and fishery models. Using stable isotope and gut content analysis, the proposed study will examine and contrast the trophic ecology of jellyfish communities from Britain and Northern Chile and examine their interactions with sympatric fish communities. Furthermore, this information will inform marine biologists, modellers and policy makers allowing them to improve fishery and ecosystem models.


If you are (or know of) a keen and hard-working student that is a UK national or a EU national that has resided in the UK for the past 3 years  looking to undertake a PhD, please see http://london-nerc-dtp.org/how-to-apply/ for applications details and requirements.

The application deadline is 9.00am Monday 17th February 2014.

See http://london-nerc-dtp.org/2013/12/05/phd-projects-queen-mary-university-of-london/ for more projects.
