  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).
  Harvesting the seashore: the impacts and management of inter-tidal fisheries
  Dr G J Watson, Dr R Herbert, Dr S Mitchell
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Biological Sciences, and will be supervised by Dr Gordon Watson, Dr Roger Herbert (Bournemouth University) and Dr Steve Mitchell.
  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.
  Harnessing the eDNA in tidal flows to assess marine biodiversity
  Dr S Helyar, Dr A Douglas
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Sarah Helyar of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Alex Douglas of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
  Using ocean tides as a natural experiment to learn about ice sheet dynamics (Ref: OP19_55)
  Dr S Rosier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The contribution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to future sea level rise remains a large source of uncertainty, despite potentially dramatic and far reaching impacts.
  Galaxy growth and evolution over the last 8 billion years
  Dr B Simmons
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Disk galaxies with masses similar to that of the Milky Way are very common in the Universe, and they build up to their masses both by forming new stars in situ and by absorbing the stars from smaller satellite galaxies.
  Fish Spas: The importance of turbulence on stress levels of fish in dynamic environments.
  Dr L Kregting, Prof BS Scott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The coastal marine environment is becoming ever more populated by the placement of infrastructure from industries including oil and gas and more recently the renewable energy sector including wind, wave and tidal energy devices.
