  Climate change-driven extinction in planktonic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Ongoing declines in biodiversity call for accurate predictions of extinction risk arising from climate change.
  Lithium isotopes in foraminifera: a new proxy for the ocean carbonate system?
  Prof R James, Prof G Foster
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The lithium (Li) isotope composition of tiny shells of marine plankton (foraminifera) preserved in sediment cores is traditionally thought to record past variations in the Li isotopic composition of seawater (e.g.
  Characterising Genetic and Ecotypic Diversity in the Foraminifera
  Dr C M Wade
Applications accepted all year round
The foraminifera are an important unicellular marine protist group that is used extensively for inferring past climate and sea level change.
  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).
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Biological and biogeochemical proxy calibration of deglaciating environments in Antarctica.
  Prof J Scourse, Dr S Kender
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Ocean Sulfate and Earth’s Surface Evolution
  Dr R Newton, Dr B Mills, Dr T Aze, Prof L Benning
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ocean sulfate is an underappreciated control on the evolution of Earth’s surface environment. Sulfate concentrations have changed a lot over the course of Earth’s history, but the effect on the biogeochemical cycles of other elements and the links to evolutionary events has received relatively little attention.
