  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.
  Biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Prof R James, Dr H Goring-Harford, Dr M Lohan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is the most rapidly warming ocean on our planet, but the consequences of ice melt on primary productivity, which underpins the entire Arctic ecosystem, are not clear.
  Metal speciation in a dynamic intermittent hypoxic marine environment (Loch Etive, Scotland)
  Dr P Salaun, Prof J Sharples, Prof M Inall, Mr T Brand
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal if this project is to determine the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in an intermittent oxygen-poor marine system.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  Tiny fractals in the sea: the biogeochemistry of particle shape
  Dr B Cael, Dr P Lam
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Particles* are a critical aspect of life and chemistry in the ocean. Marine particles are hotspots of biological activity, and their sinking mediates a major vertical transport of mass and energy that connects the sunlit and dark ocean ecosystems and fundamentally influences global biogeochemistry.
  Who cycles DMSP in coastal waters and how? (TODDUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Todd, Dr R Airs, Dr F Hopkins, Dr S Moxon
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

INTRODUCTION. Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) is one of Earth’s most abundant organosulfur molecules. It is an anti-stress compound that is produced by many marine phytoplankton and bacteria.
  How do climate-driven shifts in phytoplankton communities influence carbon and nitrogen uptake and recycling along the west Antarctic Peninsula?
  Dr S Henley, Dr A Poulton, Prof K Davidson, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Biological carbon and nutrient uptake and recycling will be examined at the west Antarctic Peninsula in relation to climate-driven changes in phytoplankton biomass and species composition.
  Where did all the sulphur go? Understanding reactions of sulphur with iron and organic matter in anoxic oceans
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock, Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decades, it has emerged that increased CO2 in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution is one of the main drivers of accelerated global climate change.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.
