University of Bayreuth is offering a PhD position to investigate biological effects of microplastics from biodegradable plastics in freshwater invertebrates.
Microplastics pose a global challenge. As most plastic is produced and used inland, the considerable lack of knowledge on their sources and impacts in freshwater ecosystems inhibits effective mitigation measures. The Europe-wide project “Limnoplast” aims to address this challenge.
