  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 changing nature of Antarctic food webs
  Dr E O'Gorman, Dr S Hill, Dr M Taylor, Dr P Hollyman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Marine ecosystems around Antarctica are characterised by high numbers of penguins, seals, whales, and their common prey, krill.
  A Statistical Approach to Understanding the Complexity of Bryozoan Mineralogy
  Dr P Dillingham, Prof D Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Bryozoans are one of the most mineralogically-complex phyla in the sea. These small colonial invertebrates make hard skeletons from seawater in any of three carbonate minerals, sometimes in various combinations, in response to controls that are intrinsic (phylogeny, development) and extrinsic (environment).
  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.
  Are we stealing food from the birds? Developing the evidence base to develop targets for ecologically sustainable fisheries
  Dr T Webb, Dr F Daunt, Dr C Lynam
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds play a crucial role in marine food webs, but globally they have declined in recent decades with 28% of species now threatened with extinction.
  The Macroecology of Changing Marine Ecosystems
  Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The marine environment covers most of our planet, and is vital for food provision, climate regulation, and biodiversity.
  Dissecting the microbial foodweb: determining the influence of phytoplankton derived organic matter substrates on bacterial growth efficiency
  Dr C Evans, Prof C Moore
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Bacterial growth plays a key role in regulating carbon and nutrients fluxes, and energy flow in marine ecosystems.
  Integrating marine fungi into the structure and function of pelagic ecosystems.
  Dr M Cunliffe, Dr B Ward, Prof ME Edwards
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Even though marine fungi have been known to exist since the 19th century, the application of molecular ecology tools has established a foundational understanding of the widespread distribution and diversity of the ocean mycobiome (Amend et al 2019).
  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
  Palaeophysiology: metabolism and metabolic evolution of ammonites and belemnites
  Dr C Trueman, Prof R Twitchett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. An animal’s metabolic rate (the sum total of chemical activity powering life) is one of the most powerful predictors of ecological performance, co-varying with life history traits such as growth rate, fecundity, activity levels and, in ectotherms, environmental thermal tolerance.
