Marine Biology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 29 Marine Biology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Presence and drivers of geographic variation in delphinid vocal signals

Understanding the variation present in animal signals can provide insight into drivers behind it, such as the social structure, ecology, distribution and genetic diversity present in populations. Read more

Masters by Research (MSD): Habitat connectivity and Coastal Natural Capital

Masters by Research (MSD). Habitat connectivity and Coastal Natural Capital. Applications are invited for a fully funded (UK Home student fees only) 12 month Masters-by-Dissertation studentship that will study the role of habitat connectivity in assessment of natural capital in coastal ecosystems. Read more

Measuring social impacts in aquaculture supply chains (MPhil)

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
To be considered for this project, please follow the How to Apply instructions below. Background. The sustainability of global seafood supply has traditionally centred on environmental impact, but recent attention has shifted towards social sustainability and improved worker welfare. Read more

How do foraminifera grow? Determining the role of cellular ion transport processes in biogenic marine calcite formation

Project rationale. The shells of calcifying planktonic marine organisms such as the foraminifera represent one of the largest long-term carbon sinks on Earth’s surface and are an important archive of geochemical systems that record past climate change. Read more

Biological and chemical drivers of calcium carbonate dissolution in the ocean

Scientific Challenge. Significant questions remain over how chemical and/or biological processes drive calcium carbonate dissolution in the ocean where mineral saturation states and pH levels are high. Read more

Rocky shore biodiversity: Separating the effects of anthropogenic impacts from natural variation and climate change impacts.

The marine environment of Orkney has been subject to a variety of pressures over the years and there is a history of marine monitoring programmes investigating the potential impacts of different activities such as those associated with the oil terminal on Flotta, aquaculture, introduction of non-native species and climate change. Read more

Spatial modelling of mackerel migrations and zonal attachment

Fish stocks do not respect national boundaries or, frequently, even fisheries management areas. For highly migratory and internationally shared stocks this can lead to major difficulties regarding quota allocations between nations participating in the fishery (Fernandes & Fallon, 2020). Read more

SUPER DTP: The impact of environmental change on the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of symbiotic sponge communities

This fully funded, 42-month PhD project is part of the SUPER DTP. The SUPER DTP is built around a well-established collaborative group of universities delivering world-leading research in natural environmental science. Read more

Estimating spatial and temporal patterns in density of harbour porpoises in the North Sea using datasets from passive acoustic ocean observation networks with data flow to EU Digital Twin Ocean database

  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
A fundamental question in animal ecology is how and why the abundance of populations changes with space and time. Estimates of abundance are also critical for monitoring the conservation status of populations. Read more
