  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Bleaching and the genetic mechanisms for acclimation and adaptation in coral reefs
  Dr N Kamenos, Dr H Burdett, Dr D Exton, Dr S Hennige
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The ecosystem services provided by coral reefs are worth over $100 billion annually and include coast line protection, tourism, food and medical derivatives.
  Predicting the future of coral reefs: inverse modelling of the past to predict the future
  Dr J Hill
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Coral reefs are the marine equivalent of rainforests. occupying 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface but hosting 38% of marine species.
  Implications of coral reef degradation for fisheries
  Prof Nick Graham
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Around six million people fish on coral reefs, and the fish they catch provide critical sources of protein, micronutrients and income for many millions more.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Blue carbon storage in coral reef systems
  Dr N Kamenos, Dr H Burdett, Dr D Exton
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Carbon sequestration by natural systems may be a solution for slowing down atmospheric CO2 increases, and has been recognized under the United Nations ‘Framework for Climate Change Convention’, within the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) programme.
  Crumbling reefs: quantifying risk of cold-water coral habitat loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the world’s 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.
  Intraspecific variation in responses to noise and light pollution - NERC GW4+ DTP
  Prof A Radford, Dr C Ioannou
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Human population growth, rapid urbanisation and the expansion of transportation networks have dramatically altered terrestrial and aquatic environments.
  Comparative study of anemones from distinct thermal habitats: Highlighting the impact of geographic isolation in promoting evolution of thermal resistant genotype
  Dr V Modepalli, Prof J Wiedenmann
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Acquisition of phototrophic endosymbionts constitutes a key ecological innovation in the evolution of corals, permitting these animals to flourish in oligotrophic waters.
