PhD position on microplastics in freshwater foodwebs at SLU

The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment, is offering a PhD position in ecology to investigate the impacts of microplastics on the structure and function of freshwater food webs.

This PhD project addresses key gaps in the understanding of the behaviour of different types of microplastics in streams. Key research areas include their impact on resource consumption, growth and survival of organisms, and biodiversity and key ecosystem processes. Moreover, research topics include interactions with chemical stressors and outcomes for biota and ecosystem function and potential for transfer between trophic levels in food webs.
