  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.
  Impacts of El Nino Costero on fishing and fisher communities in Peru
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Prof ND Laurie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has a major impact on fishery production in the Humboldt Current off Peru, so much so that El Nino years are readily apparent in downward dips in annual time series of global fish catch.
  Developing and testing models for the assessment of fish and scallops in the Clyde
  Dr D C Speirs, Prof M Heath, Dr P Boulcott
Applications accepted all year round
This fully-funded studentship will remain open only until filled, and so we recommend applying immediately. Mathematical models play a central role in determining the population size of fish and other marine organisms that are caught for human consumption.
  Exploring Deep Scattering Layers with the global Argo float network
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Deep Scattering Layers (DSLs) are ubiquitous features of the mesopelagic component (200 to 1,000m depth zone) of the global ocean.
  Methods and policy pathways to optimize production of multiple interacting fish stocks
  Dr A Rossberg, Dr R Thorpe
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Global environmental issues related to food security, biodiversity, and use of antibiotic, pesticide and fertilizers suggest use of smart mixtures of crops/stocks in agriculture, forestry, farming, and ranching.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT: Defining nutrient sources and fluxes driving lowland drinking water reservoir ecosystem response
  Prof P Johnes
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Nutrient enrichment of surface freshwaters is the single largest stressor on freshwater ecosystems and the services they provide, throughout the developed world.
  Impact of mesoscale eddies on the plankton communities of the Polar Frontal zone (TARLINGUBAS19ARIES)
  Prof G Tarling, Dr C Robinson, Prof W Wilson, Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. This PhD will provide the opportunity to study the remote and isolated Southern Ocean. Isolation is believed to make the fauna of the Southern Ocean unique but recent evidence of encroachments of pelagic fauna across the Polar Front challenges this view.
  Shellfish responses to global environmental change – implications for aquaculture and marine conservation
  Dr M Steinke, Dr T Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisory Team. Dr Michael Steinke ([email protected]) – School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex. Dr Tom Cameron ([email protected]) – School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
  Variability of CO2 and its impact on biota in natural and anthropogenically impacted freshwater environments,NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Prof R W Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Rod Wilson, Department of Biosciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Ian Armstrong, Pulcea.
  Minimising adverse effects of conservation: Ecological consequences of restoration of salmon carcasses to upland streams (Ref IAP2-18-31)
  Prof N Metcalfe
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Salmon populations are declining and in need of active conservation measures, but how is their freshwater habitat best managed to maximise their survival? The juveniles live in uplands streams that would previously have contained many adult salmon that would have died after spawning, so releasing nutrients into an otherwise nutrient-poor environment.
