  Bio-inspired high-efficient arrays of tidal energy converters
  Dr IM Viola
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
The UK tidal sector has recently achieved remarkable progress, including deploying the first two arrays of tidal turbines (Nova Innovation and MeyGen) and deploying the world’s largest twin-rotor floating tidal turbine (Scotrenewable).
  Tides in a changing climate
  Prof C Hughes, Prof R Williams, Dr A Hibbert, Dr J Williams
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The largest contribution to sea level variability in many parts of the world is the tide. In addition to sea level rise, the tides are changing in many parts of the world (Woodworth, 2010).
  A Tidal Clock: Circadian and Circatidal Rhythms in a Marine Intertidal Crustacean
  Dr D Wilcockson
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
This project is part of a competition funded through the Aberystwyth University ’AberDoc’ scheme (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/fees-finance/uk-eu/research-competition/) and is in collaboration with Leicester University (Professor Bambos Kyriacou) and Cambridge MRC-LMB (Dr Michael Hastings).
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Measuring the mass and shape of the Milky Way’s dark matter halo with tidal streams
  Dr D Erkal, Prof J Read
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Milky Way is surrounded by a large dark matter halo which is expected to be triaxial. This aim of this studentship is to measure its shape using tidal streams which will be a critical test of the cold dark matter paradigm.
  Will salt marsh survive sea level rise? An integrated numerical model and field investigation
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Salt marshes are delicate ecosystems located at the boundary between sea and land and play a number of crucially important socio-economic roles.
  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.
  Understanding regional basin evolution through integrated global palaeo-Earth systems models and numerical stratigraphic forward modelling
  Prof P Burgess, Prof D Faulkner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeo-Earth systems models (PESMs) calculating palaeoclimate, denudation and palaeo-oceanic tides and currents could potentially provide important input parameters useful for process-based forward modelling approaches to reservoir prediction.
  Fluid flows through porous obstacles
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental and industrial fluid mechanics problems often involve flows through porous obstacles. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, offshore structures, buildings exposed to flooding and arrays of turbines in tidal channels.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat)
  Dr S Paul, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  Tides as a natural experiment to learn about ice stream flow: modelling the “stick-slip” motion of Whillans Ice Stream, Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/ROSIER)
  Dr S Rosier
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by over 60m but our understanding of the basal mechanics of fast flowing ice streams, that largely determine the rate and amount of ice draining into the ocean, remains incomplete.
