  Fingerprinting bioactive trace elements in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr M Lohan, Dr A Annett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing dramatic environmental change and has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the planet.
  Forams in the laser sights – getting the most out of laser ablation ICPMS analysis of planktic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof G Foster, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Planktic foraminifera are unicellular protists that secrete a 100-1000 m multi-chambered shell during their four week life cycle.
  Genomics of Adaption to Climate Change in Rice
  Dr M Chapman, Dr M Carine, Dr L Williams
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Feeding a growing population sustainably in the face of climate change requires us to resolve the genetic basis of crop tolerance to stress (especially temperature, precipitation and edaphic factors).
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
  Global phylo-epidemiology Vibrio parahaemolyticus within a context of climate change
  Prof J Martinez-Urtaza, Prof C Hauton, Dr R Marsh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Vibrio parahaemolyticus (Vp) is a marine bacterium and a natural inhabitant of coastal environments worldwide.
  Heat Transfer between the ocean and the seabed: implications for the effective operation of marine high voltage cables.
  Dr J Dix, Dr G Callender, Dr J Pilgrim, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The temperature of the sediments that surround buried marine high voltage cables play a critical role in their design, operation and maintenance.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  How do submesoscale physical processes influence the biological carbon pump?
  Dr A Martin, Dr S Henson, Dr P Goodwin, Dr R Taylor
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The ocean is a huge reservoir for carbon. Understanding the processes that retain it in the ocean—rather than release it to the atmosphere—is key to making accurate climate predictions.
  Hydrate formation from CH4 released during serpentinisation. How important it is on Earth?
  Dr H Moreno, Dr G Bayrakci, Dr I Falcon Suarez, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that forms at high pressures and low temperatures when sufficient methane is available in continental margins and deep ocean sediments.
