Chemical Stressors, Food Webs and Ecological Risk Assessment

In partnership with Unilver, we are recruiting two PhD students to develop ecological theory how multiple chemical contaminants impact on populations, biodiversity and ecosystem function.  The main objective is to broaden ecological risk assessment to multiple threats and multiple ecological scales.

The studentships are co-supervised by Andrew Beckerman, Lorraine Maltby and Dylan Childs at Sheffield and Claudia Rivetti and Andrea Gredelj at Unilever.
