  A lab on a chip: using nano-plasmonics tongues for building miniaturized ecosystem sensors (SUPER DTP)
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr L Boehme
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

Sustainability and human wellbeing depend on resources from marine and freshwater systems, and to monitor how they are changing, a range of observations are needed.
  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  The past, present and future of the Great Barrier Reef: integrating machine learning, ecology and sedimentology.
  Dr J Hill, Prof P Burgess, Prof F Whitaker, Prof J Webster
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

Coral reefs are the marine equivalent of rainforests. occupying 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface but hosting 38% of marine species.
  EASTBIO: Application of MinION Nanopore sequencing to understand the impact of environmental changes on sentinel indicators of ecosystem health
  Dr E Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are increasingly aware that human, veterinary and environmental health is intricately linked and farming and food production systems must not only be resilient to environmental changes and threats but the systems themselves must also perform with minimal environmental impact.
  Provision or Poison? Biogeochemistry of sediments in a warming ocean
  Dr A Annett, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The importance of sediment processes in driving biogeochemical cycles, from blue carbon storage, to nutrients (silica, iron) and pollutants (lead, arsenic), are becoming increasingly recognized, from local to global scale [1].
