  Angry Damsels: Do Species Interactions After Overfishing Enhance or Inhibit Coral Reef Recovery?
  Dr S Keith, Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reef species are undergoing widespread mortality under increasingly frequent mass coral bleaching events,. which will continue until global efforts reduce CO2 emissions.
  Cold-water coral reef growth and loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige, Prof M Roberts, Dr U Wolfram
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the oceans from 30 to 3000 m deep. The complex three-dimensional frameworks made by these vulnerable marine ecosystems support high biodiversity and commercially important species compared to neighbouring, less complex habitats.
  Recognising the role of sponge mucus production in explaining Darwin’s coral reef paradox
  Dr J Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are among the most productive ecosystems in the world, providing extensive ecological and economic services.
  Coral reef ecosystem collapse: constraining rates of biological and physical erosion. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof CT Perry
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Chris Perry, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Coral niche construction
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Dr M Dornelas, Prof K N Laland
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are one of the ecosystems with the highest concentration of biological diversity on the planet. In 1% of the sea they harbor over 25% of marine species.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr N Santodomingo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  Joint PhD with University of Manchester: Microscale fluid dynamics around coral surfaces
  Dr D Brumley, Prof P Duck
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This fully funded project will develop a new biophysical approach to coral studies, integrating mathematical modelling, numerical simulations and lab-on-chip experiments.
  The past, present and future of the Great Barrier Reef: integrating machine learning, ecology and sedimentology.
  Prof J Hill, Prof P Burgess, Prof F Whitaker
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reefs are the marine equivalent of rainforests. occupying 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface but hosting 38% of marine species.
  Aliens in the twilight zone: using robots to study and manage invasive lionfish on Caribbean mesophotic coral ecosystems
  Prof R Field, Dr S Keith
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive lionfish threaten native Caribbean marine biodiversity. Lionfish predate unchecked on native fish which, unlike in the lionfish’s native Indo-Pacific, have no evolved defence.
