  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Developing and testing innovative approaches to support seaweed cultivation in the UK
  Dr D Smale, Dr A Jensen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Seaweed cultivation is one of the fastest growing components of global agriculture, with seaweed production contributing to a range of industries including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, animal feed, fertilizer, biofuels and human food.
  Development of Robust Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping Techniques for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Operating under the Polar Sea-Ice
  Prof E Rogers, Dr A. Phillips, Dr G Salavasidis
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Despite the considerable effort directed towards AUV navigation, a self-contained solution remains a key challenge.
  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.
  Dynamic phytoplankton iron physiology and its impacts on global ecosystem function
  Dr B Ward, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Primary production couples solar energy arriving at the Earth’s surface to global biogeochemistry, linking elemental cycles together through the synthesis of organic molecules.
  Dynamics of a wave propelled surface vessel
  Dr N Townsend, Dr D Taunton, Dr M Tan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to establish the fundamental principles of a novel, submerged tandem flapping foil mechanism to convert ocean wave energy directly into propulsion for ASVs.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve sustainability of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr J.L. Snaddon, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity tropical areas, alongside a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge in many countries with tropical climates.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty, Prof P Wilson, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof H Scher
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
  Fine-scale electric fields and Joule heating from observations of the Aurora
  Dr R Fear, Dr D Whiter, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Earth’s aurora borealis (northern lights) are a spectacular natural phenomenon.
