  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.
  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.
  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.
  Simulating the fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in the Northwest European Shelf ecosystem with a suite of high resolution numerical models
  Dr K O'Driscoll, Prof U Witte
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Introduction/Background. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are chemical substances that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, geological and physical processes.
  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.
  Synthetic biology in unicellular green algea
  Dr K Ríha
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Green picoalgae are important constituents of marine plankton and play important role in sea ecology and biogeochemical cycles. They represent some of the smallest eukaryotes with simple body organization and highly streamlined genomes.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
