PhD in Biosciences: Control of Fish Pathogens
Application deadline: 31st March 2017
Start date: 1st October 2017 or 1st January 2018
Duration: 3 years
Funding body: KESS
The project aims to assess the impact of climate change on fish parasites in order to generate a more accurate predictions and decisions regarding the future of aquaculture and sensitive wild fish population. This is a collaborative project between Eco-explore and the groups of Prof Joanne Cable from the School of Biosciences. The project objectives are assessing how gyrodactylid parasites respond to multiple stressors (temperature and control treatment) and addressing fundamental questions about adaptation of fish pathogens to changing environment and identification of potential novel and effective parasite treatments in order to directly assist in the mitigation of losses in the wild, ornamental and food fish.
