  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Governing effective marine protected areas: Backing the blue belt through governance structures
  Dr G Reinhardt, Dr T Cameron, Dr C Sweeting
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Evolution Education Trust PhD project - Evolution and biodiversity conservation in Africa: teaching, training and outreach
  Prof T Szekely
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  QUADRAT DTP: Can pollutant transfer through benthic elasmobranch food-chains be related to their feeding ecology?
  Prof A Meharg, Dr C S Jones
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutants tend to biomagnify through marine food-chains, causing problems both for the health of top predators, and for humans that consume them.
  Persistent chemical threats in the estuarine environment: sources and solutions to marine water quality challenges in the Native European Oyster
  Dr C Whitby, Dr B McKew, Dr T Cameron
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous and persistent environmental pollutants, which can enter the marine environment from many natural and anthropogenic sources.
  The population genomics of New Zealand seabirds and developing DNA markers to resolve uncertainties of bycatch identification
  Dr PA Ritchie, Dr N Rawlence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabird bycatch in long-line and trawl fisheries is a significant issue, particularly for albatrosses, shearwaters and the larger species of petrels.
  QUADRAT DTP: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  The impact of sensory pollution on fish navigation.
  Dr C Newport, Dr T Burt de Perera
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All animals use senses to gather information. However, sensory systems are not perfect and cannot always detect a clear signal. Interfering external sources can cause ‘sensory pollution’ thereby interrupting normal behaviour.
  Quantifying the marine ecosystem functions and services provided by restoration of biogenic native oyster reefs in European temperate coastal systems.
  Dr J Preston, Dr S Marley, Dr P zu Ermagassen, Dr G J Watson
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Institute of Marine Sciences, located in the heart of the Solent, and will be supervised by Dr Joanne Preston, Dr Sarah Marley, Dr Philine zu Ermgassen and Dr Gordon Watson.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts
  Dr J Potts, Dr S Patrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
