  Not just going with the flow: does biological production rather than deep water formation drive the Southern Ocean carbon sink?
  Dr P Brown, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr N Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) is thought to have absorbed ~40% of all global human-derived (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide and >75% of anthropogenic heat, thus being disproportionately influential in mitigating increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and related climate effects.
  Temporal variability of the carbon system across the Atlantic Ocean; causes and implications
  Dr S Hartman, Dr R James, Dr P Brown, Dr A Schaap
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Approximately 25% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by fossil fuel combustion enters the ocean. Without this sink, the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere would be larger than it is.
  EASTBIO: Dehalogenases from the brown algal genome model Ectocarpus siliculosus
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Frithjof Kuepper (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/oceanlab/research/frithjof-kuepper.php. Dr Hai Deng (University of Aberdeen).
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  How do climate-driven shifts in phytoplankton communities influence carbon and nitrogen uptake and recycling along the west Antarctic Peninsula?
  Dr S Henley, Dr A Poulton, Prof K Davidson, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Biological carbon and nutrient uptake and recycling will be examined at the west Antarctic Peninsula in relation to climate-driven changes in phytoplankton biomass and species composition.
  Adapting to life in an increasingly acid world: understanding tolerance to acidic waters in populations of trout (Salmo trutta). PhD in Biosciences(NERC FRESH).
  Dr J R Stevens
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) provides a world-class doctoral research and training environment, for the next generation of interdisciplinary freshwater scientists equipped to tackle future global water challenges.
  Bloom busters: understanding how phytoplankton defend against grazers. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Katherine Helliwell, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter; Marine Biological Association.
  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

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to study the role of humic substances and the ligand pool as controls on dissolved iron distributions in the Southern Ocean.
  Understanding the importance of spatio-temporal variation in oceanographic and climate conditions for biological traits
  Dr S Patrick, Prof J Sharples, Dr S Descamps
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to understand the spatial and temporal scale at which the environment drives behaviour and breeding performance in Arctic seabirds.
  What controls the warming of the Antarctic Bottom Water supply to the Atlantic Ocean?
  Dr P Abrahamsen, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. During the last three decades, the Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) that fills the bulk of the ocean abyss has exhibited a striking warming and contraction in volume over much of the world ocean, particularly in the Atlantic basin.
