  Mass and energy flow in seafloor ecosystems, testing and tuning deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Deep-sea habitats at water depths over 2000 m cover ~60% of the Earth’s surface and are the largest and least explored environment on the planet (Smith et al.
  Evolution of Antarctic circumpolar oceanic circulation and high-latitude climate
  Dr S Bohary, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic basins.
  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.
  Next generation conservation genetics at sea: detecting and conserving adaptive potential
  Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Background. There is a long tradition in conservation genetics of using neutral genetic markers to assess demographic patterns and processes relevant to conservation.
  Tracking the ancient Indian monsoon: investigating the geochemistry of deep-sea sediments from the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea
  Dr K Littler, Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Prof R Pancost, Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Drought history of Southern Africa from windblown dust in ocean sediments and links to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr A Crocker, Dr S Bohary
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. As Earth heats up this century because of human forcing, precipitation patterns will change globally.
  The origin of Antarctic ice shelf fauna, the timing of its emergence and the demographic stability of the fauna over time
  Dr A Glover, Dr J Copley
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. The objective is to study the taxonomy, biodiversity, phylogeography and population genetic patterns of under-ice shelf fauna with a focus on polychaetes.
  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.
  Effects of oil spill dispersants on marine oil snow formation, fate and impact
  Dr B McKew, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisory Team. Dr Boyd A McKew ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex. Dr Terry J McGenity ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
  Temperature, food, and the distribution of marine biodiversity
  Dr T Webb, Prof A Hirst, Dr C McClain
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The form of large-scale gradients in marine biodiversity is still debated, with the relative roles of temperature and productivity varying between habitats and taxonomic groups.
