  PhD in Earth Sciences: Coral Survival in a Warmer World
  Dr N Kamenos, Dr G Hamilton, Dr D Exton
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecosystem services provided by coral reefs are worth over £65 billion annually and include coast line protection, tourism, food and medical derivatives.
  Evolution in the sea: how do new phytoplankton species form?
  Dr D Filatov
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis in marine phytoplankton is responsible for about half of newly produced organic matter on the planet. The amount of CO2 fixed by phytoplankton is thought to significantly affect the global carbon cycle and climate.
  Antarctic benthic Mollusca: biodiversity, community and functional group structure in habitats influenced by varying ice-cover and the Weddell Gyre
  Dr K Linse, Dr P Fenberg
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) and its Antarctic component are globally important in understanding how ecosystems and biodiversity respond to climate change.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  How do epigenetic modifications affect evolution in phytoplankton?
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Collins, Dr Attila Molnar
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, affect how organisms respond to environmental changes such as light or temperature variation.
  The behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds.
  Prof T Guilford
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Merton College are seeking outstanding applicants for a DPhil scholarship to conduct research at the Department of Zoology on the behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds in the Oxford Navigation Group (OxNav) under the supervision of Professor Tim Guilford.
  Floaters vs. sinkers: How do marine phytoplankton combat the biological pump?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Uncover the “genetic dark matter” responsible for maintaining buoyancy in marine phytoplankton. Test how abiotic and biotic stress impact buoyancy traits of marine phytoplankton.
  Understanding the genetic blueprint of photosynthetic bacteria?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Cutting-edge 3D chromosome reconstruction and “gene transplants” using CRISPR. Understanding the evolution of chromosomes of photosynthetic organisms.
  QUADRAT DTP: Impact of climate change on stability of sponge-microbe symbiosis
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to understand the biodiversity and stability (resilience and resistance) of sponge-microbe symbiosis following multiple environmental perturbations influenced by climate change.
