  PhD project in oceanic heat uptake and transport
  Dr T Kuhlbrodt, Dr H Hewitt, Dr R Tailleux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean heat uptake is a key process in the current heating of the Earth System. 92% of the heat added to the Earth system is stored in the world ocean.
  PhD Position (m/f/d) in the area of Coastal Ocean Turbulence
  Dr J Carpenter
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference code. 50012325_2 – 2020/KO 1. Commencement date. as soon as possible. The Institute of Coastal Research is investigating the influence of offshore wind farm structures on the dynamics of coastal seas.
  Modelling ocean wave dissipation through pancake ice fields
  Dr F Montiel, Dr A Suanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a warming climate, ocean wave activity is projected to intensify in the polar regions. Sea ice forms as pancake ice at the ocean surface under intense wave conditions.
  Offshore Ocean Farming
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr N Townsend
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Nicholas Townsend (Maritime Engineering). Project description. Offshore ocean farms have huge potential however, all previous attempts at offshore ocean farming have been unsuccessful.
  Why phytoplankton are so diverse in the ocean desert?
  Dr B Chen, Dr M GRINFELD
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student to join our group. This fully-funded 3 year studentship needs to be filled in as soon as possible, so we recommend applying immediately.
  Wave attenuation in the marginal ice zone (PARAUEU20SF)
  Dr E Parau
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between ocean waves and sea-ice are extremely complex. The interactions are essential to understanding sea-ice morphology, especially in the context of global warming [3].
  Mathematical modelling of impacts by breaking ocean waves (COOKERMU20SF)
  Dr M Cooker, Prof A Korobkin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When an ocean wave travels from deep water into shallower coastal water, it steepens and overturns as a breaking wave. While a wave is breaking, it can exert damaging forces on a structure in its path.
  Transport and fate of microplastics from rivers to the ocean
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr G A M de Almeida
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Gustavo de Almeida & Sergio Maldonado (WEEG). Project description. Since the 1950’s the world has witnessed the dramatic increase in production and widespread consumption of plastics.
  What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSDU20SF)
  Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
  Subsea RANGERS: Subsea ROV/AUV-based Nextgen Geotechnical suRveyS
  Research Group: Infrastructure Division
  Prof S Gourvenec
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Susan Gourvenec. Co-supervisor David White. Project background.
  Novel Hybrid Wind and Wave Energy System and Its Structural Dynamic Responses Subjected to Combined Wind and Wave Loads
  Dr L Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sustainable development of offshore wind and ocean energy needs an efficient use of the natural resources, optimising their exploitation and reducing costs.
  How rapidly are oceanic volcanic islands destroyed by erosion?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr G Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During and after volcanism has ended, volcanic ocean islands are progressively reduced in elevation by subsidence, giant landslides, coastal erosion, fluvial erosion and hillslope landsliding, ultimately creating shallow banks and guyots.
