  Understanding the ecology and biogeochemistry of midwater ecosystems
  Dr K Cook, Dr D Mayor, Dr B Ward
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The mesopelagic zone of the ocean (~50-1000 m beneath the surface), often referred to as the ‘twilight zone’, remains one of the most poorly understood ecosystems on Earth.
  Micro-managing the oceans: how parasites modify the role of copepods as ecosystem engineers.
  Dr M van der Giezen, Dr E Santos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  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.
  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.
  Changes in metabolic energy use with body sizes within pelagic invertebrate species: new insights from jellyfish
  Prof A Hirst, Dr D Atkinson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Gelatinous zooplankton (‘jellyfish’) have a body water content that is proportionately very high, a trait that has evolved in at least 5 planktonic phyla.
  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.
  Climate change-driven extinction in planktonic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Ongoing declines in biodiversity call for accurate predictions of extinction risk arising from climate change.
  Dissecting the microbial foodweb: determining the influence of phytoplankton derived organic matter substrates on bacterial growth efficiency
  Dr C Evans, Prof C Moore
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Bacterial growth plays a key role in regulating carbon and nutrients fluxes, and energy flow in marine ecosystems.
  Exploring Deep Scattering Layers with the global Argo float network
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Prof A Brierley, Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Deep Scattering Layers (DSLs) are ubiquitous features of the mesopelagic component (200 to 1,000m depth zone) of the global ocean.
