  Response of ringed seal populations to environmental change in the Canadian Arctic
  Dr R Jeffreys, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr SC Smout, Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing unprecedented rates of environmental change, warming twice as fast as the global average (Hoegh-Guldberg and Bruno, 2010).
  The Stratigraphy and Emplacement of the Antrim Lavas (SEAL)
  Dr C T Stevenson, Dr S Watt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018).
  Fantastic fat and the evolution of capital and income breeding strategies in seals
  Dr A Welch, Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Aims. Seals are often considered icons for how organisms evolve to adapt to their environment, and they have developed several strategies to finance their breeding attempts.
  The role of lipid-store body condition in the behaviour and reproduction of cetaceans
  Prof P Miller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Body condition, here defined as the quantity of energy stores carried in the fat (lipid) stores of an individual, reflects an integration of metabolic costs and foraging success - but also reflects the reproductive needs of the individual in their life cycle (Miller et al., 2011).
  PhD studentship opportunity in coupled fluid and structural modelling of brush seals for rotating machinery
  Dr M Pekris, Prof J Chew
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship within the Centre for Aerodynamics at the University of Surrey. Advanced seals such as brush seals offer potential reductions in waste-leakage within the secondary air systems of rotating machines such as gas and steam turbines.
  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.
  A critical assessment of fault growth models using Machine Learning tools
  Dr T Alves
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Lithological heterogeneities in subsurface units are capable of distributing stresses in distinct ways, leading to the nucleation of faults and fractures in specific stratigraphic intervals.
  Electric fields as a chemical reagent – Electrostatic catalysis in diffusive systems
  Dr S Ciampi, Dr N Darwish
Applications accepted all year round
This proposal seeks to demonstrate how chemical catalysis by an electric field can allow unmatched control on chemical reactivity.
  Predicting risk and planning mitigation against regional impact from climate change on populations of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpines)
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr E McClymont
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Arctic char have a circumpolar distribution in high boreal, alpine and arctic habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. Many southern populations are stationary in freshwater habitats, but some especially in the north are anadromous (moving between marine and freshwater habitats).
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
