  Using multibeam sonar to monitor animal behaviour and environmental interactions at marine renewable energy sites
  Dr B Williamson, Prof V Nikora, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date, there are 8.5 GW of installed UK offshore wind capacity, and it is estimated 20% of current UK electricity demand could be met with wave and tidal stream sources.
  The behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds.
  Prof T Guilford
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Merton College are seeking outstanding applicants for a DPhil scholarship to conduct research at the Department of Zoology on the behaviour and ecology of wild seabirds in the Oxford Navigation Group (OxNav) under the supervision of Professor Tim Guilford.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Mate choice, and mate choice copying in cuttlefish
  Research Group: Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC)
  Dr G Cooke, Dr S Mowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Behavioural Ecology Research Group (BEEC) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/behavioural-ecology.
  Pathways to Realistic Impact Modelling in Estuarine Areas (PRIMEA)
  Dr P Robins, Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Estuaries connect terrestrial and marine environments, providing one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Complex land-sea interactions combined with intensive land-use and land-value mean that they are at heightened risk from flooding and poor health.
  Native and invasive ladybirds in a changing UK climate (PERRYUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr J Perry, Dr H Roy
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate change and invasive species have been described as a “deadly duo”. We have the potential to explore the interacting effects of these drivers of biodiversity change using ladybirds as a model system.
  Understanding Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr A Le Brocq
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Anne Le Brocq, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter,. Additional Supervisors.
  Understanding the importance of spatio-temporal variation in oceanographic and climate conditions for biological traits
  Dr S Patrick, Prof J Sharples, Dr S Descamps
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to understand the spatial and temporal scale at which the environment drives behaviour and breeding performance in Arctic seabirds.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) call for PhD Studentship applications 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) offers up to two competitively. awarded and generously funded MPhil/PhD studentships annually.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean circulation and ice shelf melting in the Bellingshausen Sea, Antarctica. (Ref: OP202025)
  Prof A Jenkins
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around most of its margin the Antarctic Ice Sheet is shielded from the warmth of the Southern Ocean by colder waters that have been cooled to near the freezing point by heat loss to the atmosphere.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
  Up in smoke! Terrestrial carbon cycle feedbacks during warm climates
  Dr J Whiteside, Dr I Harding
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Organic carbon preserved within sedimentary rocks (fossil OC) is a major carbon reservoir and plays a crucial role in the long-term evolution of atmospheric CO2 and O2, and thus global climate.
