  Impact of a newly identified mechanism: pathways for Arctic freshwater in the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean
  Prof P Holliday, Dr R Marsh, Dr B Sinha, Dr G Evans
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Variable seawater properties and flows in the upper 1000 m of the eastern subpolar North Atlantic are a primary control of the strength of the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) and the associated transport of heat that is so important for the UK and global climate (Lozier et al., 2019).
  Integrating marine fungi into the structure and function of pelagic ecosystems.
  Dr M Cunliffe, Dr B Ward, Prof ME Edwards
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Even though marine fungi have been known to exist since the 19th century, the application of molecular ecology tools has established a foundational understanding of the widespread distribution and diversity of the ocean mycobiome (Amend et al 2019).
  Interaction between fluid flow and stress fields from seismicity
  Dr D Keir, Dr T Gernon
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of high-pressure fluids in the Earth’s crust commonly causes rocks to fracture, thereby causing measurable small magnitude earthquakes (micro-seismicity) to occur.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh, Mr M Soh, Dr C L Puan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Investigating the North America/South America plate boundary with marine geophysical data
  Dr T Henstock, Prof J Collier, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental plates are well-known to deform over broad areas but oceanic plates are often thought of as rigid blocks with narrow boundaries.
  Joint elastic-electrical properties of clay-rich sediments with fluid-filled fractures
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Accurate characterization of shallow sub-seafloor geological reservoirs and overburden sediments is essential for geological CO2 storage, gas hydrate exploitation and monitoring of fluids and host sediment properties during gas production and CO2 storage activities.
  Microplastic characteristics, fluxes and accumulation in the Atlantic Ocean
  Prof R Lampitt, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr K Pabortsava
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plastic contamination of the oceans is of considerable concern and may cause significant damage to ecosystem structure and function.
  Microplastic hotspots on the deep seafloor: Investigating the role of seafloor currents in microplastic transport and accumulation
  Dr M Clare, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour, Dr M Chapman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
