Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Quantifying the fluxes of chemical species from marine sediments into the oceans is critical for global biogeochemical cycles of many elements that are essential for life, and also for environmental monitoring of anthropogenically influenced ecosystems.
Novel biomimetic acoustic sensors inspired by insect hearing
Prof J Windmill
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position to work on an exciting inter-disciplinary project. The project aims to investigate the hearing organs of various insects, and use this biological knowledge to inspire the development of novel acoustic sensors with biomimetic properties.
