  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round
This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Picking climate change winners for assisted gene flow interventions on coral reefs
  Dr JR Guest
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. One of the most important questions for biodiversity conservation in the face of global climate change is whether species will adapt, acclimatise, migrate or be extirpated.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  Dispersal of Microplastics in the Marine Environment
  Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With an estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans each year, marine plastics are one of the biggest and most immediate threats facing the marine environment.
  Plastic invasion of remote foodwebs
  Dr C Waller, Dr M Johnson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  Lowering reuse costs by reducing fouling on immersed structures - National Decommissioning Centre
  Prof M Jaspars, Prof F Kuepper
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Fouling on marine immersed structures is a multi-billion pound issue for the offshore industry, requiring mechanical removal of foulants.
  Simulating Plankton Evolution with Adaptive Dynamics in a global ocean model (SPEAD)
  Dr P Cermeno
Applications accepted all year round
PhD offer in theoretical ecology -- eco-evolutionary dynamics of plankton. The PhD student will investigate the potential of adaptive evolution to affect the response of phytoplankton communities to a warmer and more stratified ocean due to climate change.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of both native and non-native marine invasive species.
  Monitoring and mitigating the impact of recreational activities in temperate Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)
  Dr C Fitzsimmons
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. The coastal zone is heavily used, accounting for just 4% of the earth’s land area but containing over a third of the world’s population.
  Actions of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in seabirds
  Prof G Hardiman, Prof P M Thompson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Gary Hardiman of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences/Institute for Global Food Security, Professor Paul Thompson of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences/Lighthouse Field Station, and Dr Pierre Bize of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
