NRF Global Grand Challenges Bursaries

Resilience of regulatory ecosystem services in wetlands: factors impacting upon sediment trapping, phosphate assimilation & toxicant removal.

Two bursaries are being offered to South African students as part of an NRF funded research project investigating the provision of regulatory ecosystem services in wetlands with a focus on sediment trapping and phosphates. This three-year research project, led by Dr Suzanne Grenfell at the University of the Western Cape, is in collaboration with Dr Bennie van der Waal at Rhodes University and Nancy Job from the Freshwater Unit at SANBI. The University of the Western Cape is an emerging centre of excellence in water and wetland related research, the selected students will be ensconced within a vibrant research community and will be given the opportunity to learn a variety of relevant skills and work within the world class fluvial geomorphology laboratory located in the Institute of Water Science.
