  Unravelling micro-plankton populations through lab-on-a-chip-based sorting and analysis platforms
  Dr A Iles, Dr A Adawi, Dr R Forster
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering six full-time UK/EU/International PhD Scholarships for candidates applying for each of the following projects.
  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.
  Impact of mesoscale eddies on the plankton communities of the Polar Frontal zone (TARLINGUBAS19ARIES)
  Prof G Tarling, Dr C Robinson, Prof W Wilson, Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. This PhD will provide the opportunity to study the remote and isolated Southern Ocean. Isolation is believed to make the fauna of the Southern Ocean unique but recent evidence of encroachments of pelagic fauna across the Polar Front challenges this view.
  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.
  Micro-managing the oceans: how parasites modify the role of copepods as ecosystem engineers.
  Dr M van der Giezen, Dr E Santos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  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.
  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).
  Assimilation of ocean colour data to constrain the state and parameters of marine biogeochemical models.
  Dr S Roy
Applications accepted all year round
Marine biogeochemical models are run as part of Earth system and climate models, to assess the contribution of marine biology to the carbon cycle, and the response of marine ecosystems to a changing climate.
  PhD: Optical recognition of Bythotrephes
  Dr K Cuddington
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
In collaboration with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the successful candidate will use a Laser Optical Plankton Counter (LOPC) data stream to identity plankton species in samples from the Great Lakes.
  NERC funded studentships in the Quantitative and Modelling Skills in Ecology and Evolution CDT
The Quantitative and Modelling Skills in Ecology and Evolution (QMEE) CDT is pleased to announce the competition launch of 8 NERC-funded PhD studentships starting in October 2019.
