The University of Nottingham is offering a PhD which will investigate the application of molecular tools to update aquatic ecotoxicology monitoring.
The project will include full training in a range of molecular techniques including PCR, qPCR, metabarcoding, next generation sequencing, and bioinformatics development. The latter will involve the design of bespoke bioinformatics methods in collaboration with the University’s Advanced Data Analysis Centre. Full training in conventional ecotoxicity methods will also be provided by the industrial partner and will include industry standard ecotoxicological experimental design, microscopy for taxonomic identification and enumeration of indicator species and the growth of monocultures. These taxonomy methods are rare and highly desirable skills in the ecotoxicology field.
