  Energy flow and food webs in deep seafloor ecosystems: a multifaceted approach to testing deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett, Dr J Durden
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of this project is to determine how body size controls energy flow through deep-sea food webs using biomarkers and modelling approaches.
  How does glacier runoff impact the stability of glaciers and their proglacial environment?
  Dr J Lea, Dr S Brough, Dr A Tagliabue, Dr R Duller
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to determine how the timing and magnitude of glacier runoff contributes to changes in tidewater glacier stability, sandur plains and/or marine biogeochemistry.
  Controls on Dissolved Iron Distributions in the Southern Ocean
  Dr H Whitby, Prof A Tagliabue, Dr H Planquette, Dr G Sarthou
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

This project aims to determine how the composition of the iron-binding ligand pool influences iron bioavailability to Arctic microorganisms.
  The imprint of the Atlantic jet stream and storm track on ocean overturning in the North Atlantic
  Prof R Williams, Prof T Woollings, Dr D Smith
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to identify how the atmospheric jet stream affects the meridional overturning in the North Atlantic by diagnosing coupled atmosphere-ocean models.
  Dynamics, instability and tracer spreading in a hydrothermal plume
  Prof R Williams, Prof A Tagliabue, Dr C Spingys, Prof R Mills
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will examine how tracers spread from a hydrothermal vent on a fine scale of several kilometres, drawing upon modelling experiments and high-resolution observations from a field programme.
  Nutrient limitation in the Arctic Ocean
  Prof C Mahaffey, Dr A Tagliabue, Dr M Lohan, Dr J Robidart
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to determine which nutrients constrain autotrophic and heterotrophic growth and activity in the Barents Sea and Fram Strait in the Arctic summer.

  Dr F Marret-Davies, Prof C Mahaffey, Dr B Van Dongen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate the change in plankton community over the last 200 years in the Arctic Ocean and the drivers behind it through micropalaeontological and biogeochemical studies.
