Showing 1 to 10 of 32
  Developing CRISPR genome engineering tools to understand nitrogen cycling by novel archaea (LEHTOVIRTA-MORLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr L Lehtovirta-Morley, Prof M Hutchings, Prof C Murrell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Nitrification is a central step in the global nitrogen cycle and a key driver of environmental change through its role in greenhouse gas emission and eutrophication.
  The use of Passive Acoustic Monitoring in biodiversity surveys  (BUTLERUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr S Butler, Dr I Barr
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is increasingly used both to monitor rare and/or nocturnal species that are often undetectable with traditional active monitoring approaches and to draw inference on biodiversity health and community structure from the characteristics of the composite soundscape.
  Transcriptional and environmental control of bacterial nitrous oxide emissions (ROWLEYUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr G Rowley, Dr J Todd, Prof L Baggs
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas. Although atmospheric N2O levels are lower than that of CO2, it has a 300-fold greater global warming potential, and represents around 10% of total global greenhouse gas emissions.
  Who are the important environmental producers and cyclers of DMSP? (TODDUBIO19ARIES)
  Dr J Todd, Dr R Airs, Dr F Hopkins, Dr S Moxon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Introduction. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth’s most abundant organosulfur molecules. It is an anti-stress compound that is produced by marine phytoplankton and many marine bacteria.
  Combining Evidence for Marine Monitoring (KULINSKAYAUCMP19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Prof E Kulinskaya, Dr J Barry, Dr A Bagnall
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific background. Cefas and the wider monitoring community is increasingly looking to fulfil monitoring objectives using a combination of data sources.
  A new approach to modeling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV19ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  Acoustic Detection of Rainfall using Ocean Gliders in the Tropical Indian Ocean (MATTHEWSAU19NERC)
  Prof A J Matthews, Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in tropical meteorology and oceanography, as part of the NERC-funded TerraMaris project.
  Can ocean gliders improve our ocean forecast models? (HALLUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Dr R Hall, Dr J Graham
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific Rationale. The shallow seas over continental shelves are an important sink in the global carbon cycle and therefore have a large impact on Earth’s climate.
  Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in aquatic environments: exploring an untapped source of genetic information (MOCKUENV19ARIES)
  Prof T Mock, Prof C Van Oosterhout, Prof V Moulton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
DNA outside of cells may account for the largest fraction of total DNA in many environments such as the oceans and their sediments.
  Computer simulations DaisyWord and Gaia: A study on the impact of phenotypic plasticity and gene expression under global warming scenarios (VOOSTERHOUTCU19SF)
  Prof C Van Oosterhout
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The Gaia hypothesis (Lovelock & Margulis 1974) proposes that organisms have a significant effect on the physical and chemical environment on Earth, and that feedback loops between organisms and the environment have evolved that stabilize the environment.
