  Is the Arctic an engine of phenotypic and cultural diversity?
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The latitudinal diversity gradient, a pattern of high species richness in tropical regions relative to temperate regions, is one of the most striking patterns of present-day biodiversity.
  Arctic climate extremes: the role of changing interactions between atmospheric modes (MARSHALLUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr G Marshall, Prof I Renfrew, Dr S Hosking, Dr J Jones
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. During the past few decades the Arctic has experienced the greatest warming on Earth. the resultant sea ice loss, permafrost melting and snow cover changes have affected the regional hydrology, ecosystems and indigenous peoples.
  Will ship emitted black carbon drive warming in the Arctic and North Atlantic? PhD in Geography (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr J Browse
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Jo Browse, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Prof R James, Dr H Goring-Harford, Dr M Lohan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is the most rapidly warming ocean on our planet, but the consequences of ice melt on primary productivity, which underpins the entire Arctic ecosystem, are not clear.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  Microbial life and activity on glaciers and in Arctic soils
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arctic plays host to a diverse range of microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and viruses.
  Impact of a newly identified mechanism: pathways for Arctic freshwater in the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean
  Prof P Holliday, Dr R Marsh, Dr B Sinha, Dr G Evans
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Variable seawater properties and flows in the upper 1000 m of the eastern subpolar North Atlantic are a primary control of the strength of the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) and the associated transport of heat that is so important for the UK and global climate (Lozier et al., 2019).
  Fingerprinting bioactive trace elements in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr M Lohan, Dr A Annett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing dramatic environmental change and has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the planet.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Dr K Oliver
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
