  Impacts of fishing-induced changes in forage fish school structure on African penguin foraging
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will examine African penguin – fish school interactions using a combination of acoustic survey and biologging off Robben and Dassen Islands, South Africa.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
  Utilising novel satellite observations in the monitoring and management of marine Ecosystems.PhD in Renewable Energy (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr H C M Smith
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Helen Smith, Department of Engineering, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Advanced Maritime Targets Recognition from SAR images exploiting target’s micro motions and AI
  Dr C Clemente
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship for which funding decision is pending.
  The Evolution of Institutions for Resolving Social Dilemmas - Project ID SOC0011
  Dr S Powers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social dilemmas occur frequently in human societies. They are situations where there is a conflict between what is good for one individual versus what is good for the group as a whole.
  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.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  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.
