The aim of the studentship is to develop and test new mitigation practices to reduce the spread of INNS during the large scale transfers needed to secure water supplies, focusing on key aquatic animal and plant INNS identified by the EA and the UK water industry. The student will receive interdisciplinary training in INNS biology and water engineering to develop solutions for the water industry.
