Data science is an exciting, inter-disciplinary field with huge opportunities for researchers to make an impact. Almost every area of science, engineering and commerce is driven by data, so wherever your interests lie, you can make a difference through data. Read more

Effective monitoring of deep-sea fauna using towed cameras

Project Rationale. Responsible environmental monitoring is fundamental to understanding and protecting marine environments and the sustainable development of marine resources, such as deep-sea mining, offshore oil and gas, or renewables. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Sea sparkle: identifying and predicting bioluminescent blooms

Noctiluca scintillans1 (known as “sea sparkle”) is a bioluminescent dionoflagellate, found commonly in UK coastal waters. It is sometimes associated with harmful red tides, which threaten local ecosystems and fisheries through eutrophication2. Read more

Emerging technologies to inform conservation management of pinnipeds

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
Seals alternate between time onshore and time at sea foraging. Therefore, their spatial overlap with human activities can be high compared with most marine species and has led to concerns about impacts on seal populations (Thompson et al. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Ecological drivers and conservation implications of parental care diversity in vertebrates

There are astonishing differences in whether, how, and how long for, animals care for their offspring. In most species, such as many marine fishes, parents abandon their fertilized eggs to their own destiny, which is mostly being eaten by predators. Read more

Associations between baleen whales and their prey in the northern Scotia Arc

Project Rationale. Sub-Antarctic South Georgia (SG) is a marine biodiversity hotspot and was historically a very important feeding ground for whales, with >170,000 whales killed in local waters during 20th century whaling. Read more

QUADRAT DTP CASE: Drivers of individual foraging/behaviour specialisation in a model seabird, the Falkland Islands shag

This PhD will investigate how intra-specific competition and environmental variation influence individual specialisation in foraging behaviours by studying the Falkland Island shag (Leucocarbo atriceps albiventer). Read more
