  The role of sexual selection in the evolution of sex-biased gene expression
  Dr S Flanagan
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flanagan Lab at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, is seeking outstanding applicants for a fully-funded PhD position to study sexual selection and transcriptomics.
  Uptake, bioconcentration and biomagnification of mercury into phyto- and zooplankton.
  Dr J Knoery
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seafood and especially marine fish are the primariy source of toxic monomethyl-Hg (MMHg) in Europeans. However, the processes responsible for MMHg production within marine ecosystems remain poorly quantified an understood.
  Marine Hg species dynamics and distribution.
  Dr L Heimbürger-Boavida
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is one of the least concentrated elements in the ocean, and its complex biogeochemical cyling drives ultimately the biomagnification of methylmercury into marine fish.
  Modelling methylation and bio-accumulation of Hg in the marine environment.
  Dr C Schrum
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To generate a better understanding of methylation and bio-accumulation of Hg in the marine environment and implement this into parametrizations for 3D oceanic ecosystem models; to enhance our understanding of Hg accumulation in the food chain; to improve the regional ocean-ecosystem model MECOSMO and its validation with new observational data.
  MMHg sources in coastal ecosystem: new molecular and isotopic experimental speciation approaches.
  Dr D Amouroux
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objectives.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind Turbines: A life cycle assessment of Bottom-fixed versus Floating Wind Turbine Concepts
  Dr A Hastings, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laws enacted by the UK and devolved administration mandates achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Floating offshore wind is a key technology to decarbonize electricity generation as the sites available for fixed structures are limited.
  QUADRAT DTP: Development of artificial reefs: design, scientific monitoring, environment impact and management in North/Irish Seas
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr M Sonebi
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the population growth along coastlines the demand of infrastructure for various societal needs such as transportation (ports), energies (pipelines…
  QUADRAT DTP: The genomic basis of environmental resilience and vertical zonation in the intertidal rocky shore
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extreme environmental variation in salinity, temperature and pH that characterises the rocky shore during a tidal cycle has driven a raft of different physiological and behavioural adaptations among intertidal marine organisms to cope with abiotic stress.
  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.
