  Profiling Marine Phytoplankton using State of the Art Microcytometry
  Dr J McQuillan, Dr V Creach
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Phytoplankton are essential to processes that sustain earths habitability, however little is known about the intricate and complex interactions between different phytoplankton, and their environment.
  Physical drivers of plankton variability in a shelf sea
  Prof J Sharples, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr J Hopkins, Dr J Polton
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The phytoplankton, microscopic single-celled plants that drift with the ocean currents, play two key roles in the ocean.
  Shedding light on ocean photosynthesis
  Dr A Hickman, Dr S Sathyendranath, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The ocean contains millions of single celled plants called phytoplankton that form the base of the marine food web.
  Seasonal shifts in phytoplankton community structure in the Southern Ocean observed from space
  Dr H Bouman, Dr CM Moore, Dr A Martin, Dr S Henson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Marine diatoms are key players in the ocean carbon cycle, responsible for ~ 20% of global marine productivity.
  How do climate-driven shifts in phytoplankton composition influence carbon and nitrogen uptake and recycling along the west Antarctic Peninsula?
  Dr S Henley, Prof K Davidson, Prof M Meredith, Dr A Poulton
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. Biological carbon and nutrient uptake and recycling will be examined at the west Antarctic Peninsula in relation to phytoplankton biomass and species composition.
  Dissecting the microbial foodweb: determining the influence of phytoplankton derived organic matter substrates on bacterial growth efficiency
  Dr C Evans, Prof C Moore
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Bacterial growth plays a key role in regulating carbon and nutrients fluxes, and energy flow in marine ecosystems.
  Can marine phytoplankton adapt to global warming?
  Dr G Yvon-Durocher, Prof C Brownlee, Dr J Bruggeman
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).
  Impact of recent climate change on phytoplankton composition in the Arctic Ocean
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Dr C Mahaffey
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Arctic Ocean is undergoing rapid environmental change. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the global average. The areal extent of sea ice has declined by 9% per decade since 1978 (Comiso 2012).
  Dangerous liaisons: the relationships between algal blooms and human pathogens in freshwaters
  Dr D Oliver, Dr L Carvalho, Dr P Hunter, Dr R Quilliam
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out interdisciplinary PhD research linking across freshwater ecology and applied microbiology in the context of integrated catchment management.
  Mathematical modelling of the global oxygen production by marine phytoplankton in response to global warming
  Prof S Petrovskii, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Ocean dynamics is known to have a strong effect on the global climate change and on the composition of the atmosphere. In particular, it is estimated that about 70% of the atmospheric oxygen is produced in the oceans due to the photosynthetic activity of phytoplankton.
