  In Awe of the Abyss: Conservation, Culture, and the Deep Ocean - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr L Publicover, Dr K Hendry
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. The deep ocean was until recently entirely inaccessible to humans, and featured in the popular imagination more as a site of imagination and metaphor than of human activity.
  Investigating Deep Sea Mineral Nodule Mining Strategies and Equipment
  Dr M J Brown, Dr M Ciantia
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
With the current focus on energy storage and replacement of fossil fuel driven vehicles with alternative power sources, a future shortage of global precious and important minerals has been recognised.
  The genomic basis of bacterial symbiosis in deep-sea annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin, Dr L Henry, Dr Y Wurm
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
A funded PhD position is available to start in September 2019. Mutualistic relationships between bacteria and complex organisms have repeatedly evolved and this has allowed host organisms to exploit new environments and foods.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Prof J Watson
Applications accepted all year round
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round
Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Scotland’s Deep-Water Blue Carbon Resources: Sources, Rates and Fates
Supervisor(s. ). Professor William (Bill Austin), University of St Andrews (Lead); Professor John Baxter, University of St Andrews; Dr John Howe, Scottish Association for Marine Science.
  Dynamic response and resilient design of deep water Offshore Wind Turbines
  Dr L Pelecanos, Dr A Darby
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Modern day society needs require energy savings and decarbonisation of the built environment. Alternative and renewable energy sources are becoming more attractive and new ways for energy harvesting are explored.
  Modelling rapid CO2 and climate change in the Southern Ocean
  Dr A Burke, Prof D Dritschel, Dr J Rae, Dr J Reinaud
Application Deadline: 19 March 2019
The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in the regulation of Earth’s climate through its uptake of heat and carbon. Despite representing only 20% of the ocean surface area, it accounts for more than 50% of ocean carbon uptake and more than 75% of ocean heat uptake (Charrassin et al., 2008; Meredith and Hogg, 2006).
  Marine oil snow (MOS) formation and its role in the microbial biodegradation of crude oil
  Dr T Gutierrez
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
Oil spills at sea are one of the most disastrous of anthropogenic pollution events. With oil exploration moving further into deeper waters (>1000 m depth), this raises concern because of the unpredictability and current lack of experience and know-how in dealing with a deep-sea spill.
