  Seascape genomics of Antarctic deep-sea coral: Groundtruthing larval dispersal models with genetic connectivity data
  Dr M Taylor, Dr O Hogg, Dr R Vieira, Dr R Ross
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Detailed understanding of dispersal and genetic connectivity is critical in determining processes underpinning population persistence and productivity, speciation, appropriate scales for management, and the potential for recovery from detrimental impacts e.g.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Effects of dispersants on mitigating environmental impacts of marine oil pollution: insights from microbiological, chemical and field investigations.
  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  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.
  Forams in the laser sights – getting the most out of laser ablation ICPMS analysis of planktic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof G Foster, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Planktic foraminifera are unicellular protists that secrete a 100-1000 m multi-chambered shell during their four week life cycle.
  Microplastic hotspots on the deep seafloor: Investigating the role of seafloor currents in microplastic transport and accumulation
  Dr M Clare, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  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.
  How does the ocean influence glacial melt in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica? (HALLUENV20ARIES)
  Dr R Hall, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Amundsen Sea glaciers in West Antarctica are rapidly melting in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation, increasing estimates of future sea level rise.
