  The application of artificial intelligence to benthic species identification
  Dr K Howell, Dr P Culverhouse
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine benthic ecosystems are chronically under-sampled particularly in environments >50m. Yet a rising level of anthropogenic threats makes data collection ever more urgent.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  Antarctic benthic Mollusca: biodiversity, community and functional group structure in habitats influenced by varying ice-cover and the Weddell Gyre
  Dr K Linse, Dr P Fenberg, Dr H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.
  Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the North Sea
  Dr J Godbold, Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr C Garcia
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.
  Deconstructing the Falkland sediment drift – Implications for Patagonian Ice Sheet and Antarctic Circumpolar Current evolution during the Plio-Pleistocene. PhD in Geology (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Ian Bailey, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
