  Marine Risk Assessment of High Technology Metals in the Context of Climate Change (MARTECH)
  Prof T Hutchinson, Dr M Truebano Garcia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around the world, investment is growing in the electrical economy for communication, transport and renewable energy systems. From smart phones to electric cars, a new generation of High Technology Metals (e.g.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Oceans losing breath: is anthropogenic climate change to blame for recent oceandeoxygenation?
  Dr O Andrews
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygen is essential to biological and chemical processes in the ocean. Over the last 50 years low-oxygen zones which are hostile to marine life have expanded by an area about the size of the European Union [1].
  Fishing in hot water: are the ecological impacts of trawling exacerbated by climate change?
  Dr L Robinson, Dr M Spencer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proactive fisheries management requires understanding of ecological consequences of trawling in warmer seas. While the impacts of bottom trawling and climate change are increasingly well-documented, little is known about how these pressures interact.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you a mathematics/statistics graduate, or finalist, with an interest in animal conservation and a desire to use your knowledge to help understand and mitigate against climate change?.
  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Adaptations of Antarctic penguins in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr J Younger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Impact of recent climate change on phytoplankton composition in the Arctic Ocean
  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.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the North Sea
  Dr J Godbold, Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr C Garcia
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change.
