CIFRE SCHOLARSHIP: Impact of hydrological alteration on mountain aquatic ecosystems in the French Alps.

TEREO – St. Helena Lake (A. Dos Santos), IRSTEA – Lyon (St. Cauvy-Fraunié, N. Lamouroux)

from autumn 2018

Context

Mountain watersheds display particularly complex hydrographic networks, characterized by a high environmental heterogeneity as they include streams from different water sources (groundwater, rain, snowmelt, glacier melt), which present specific hydrological regimes and environmental conditions (Hannah et al., 2007, Cauvy-Fraunié et al., 2015). These alpine hydrosystems shelter a singular ...

Blog posts from recent graduates: PhD studies of Ignasi Arranz

Posted by:

We are glad to announce that we start a new series of blog posts where we will post PhD studies of early career scientists. They will explain the findings from their research and possible applications. If you want to prepare a summary post about your studies, we would be happy to share.

The first one of this series comes from Ignasi Arranz.

Happy reading!

Global survey on ecological data collected by students

Posted by:

We are seeking information from instructors at institutions of higher-education who are currently leading, or are interested in leading, efforts to collect ecological data through class-based activities. This survey takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete, and will contribute to a global review on the extent and types of ecological data collected by students, and provide insight into the opportunities and challenges associated with these class-based efforts to support desired educational and scientific outcomes. We ask that you complete this ...

PhD-Candidate “Occurrence and fate of microplastics in the Southern Ocean”

Posted by:

Very recent studies indicate that microplastics (MP) is present in the Southern Ocean, however, many questions are open, such as: What type of MP are present, and in which region and compartments of the ocean? Is there evidence for MP originating outside of Antarctic waters? The research group man-society-environment of the University of Basel will explore in this project MP occurrence and distribution in water, sediment and possibly also in icecores and biota. The MP will be analysed in terms ...

PhD student in Freshwater Ecology at The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ)

Posted by:

Topic:

Multiple stressors affect the structural integrity of major stream compartments differently, which may alter the share of the pelagic, benthic and hyporheic zone to whole-stream nutrient uptake and may be one of the reasons for the persistently elevated nutrient emissions from catchments. With the interdisciplinary project “Linking catchment scale nutrient export to pelagic, benthic and hyporheic ecosystem functioning across stressor gradients“, we will study the link between compartmental- and whole-stream nutrient uptake and its biological and ...

2 PhD positions in University of Canberra, Australia

Posted by:

Two PhD projects to research how temperature and seasonal and daily temperature variability affect biodiversity, temperature tolerance and dispersal.

Predicting effects of changes in climatic conditions on the distribution of species remains highly challenging. Climate change is predicted to increase both mean temperature and variability in temperature, and it is critical to have a strong mechanistic understanding of how organisms are likely to respond to future thermal environments. The Climate Variability Hypothesis (Janzen 1967) relates seasonal thermal variability to species’ distributions, ...
