  Copper speciation and its impact on iron cycling
  Dr P Salaun, Dr A Tagliabue
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. Copper is a micronutrient required in a number of cellular processes that are key for phytoplankton growth [1].
  Dynamics, instability and tracer spreading in a hydrothermal plume
  Prof R Williams, Dr A Tagliabue, Dr C Spingys, Prof R Mills
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Project Summary. Hydrothermal plumes provide important inputs of trace metals into the deep ocean and these trace metals are often used as tracers of plume dispersion.
  Physical drivers of plankton variability in a shelf sea
  Prof J Sharples, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr J Hopkins, Dr J Polton
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The phytoplankton, microscopic single-celled plants that drift with the ocean currents, play two key roles in the ocean.
  RISK CDT - Vulnerability of coastal infrastructures under climate change
  Dr E Patelli, Dr N Leonardi
Applications accepted all year round
Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate has been found. The successful candidate is expected to start by February 2019.
  Changes in metabolic energy use with body sizes within pelagic invertebrate species: new insights from jellyfish
  Prof A Hirst, Dr D Atkinson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Gelatinous zooplankton (‘jellyfish’) have a body water content that is proportionately very high, a trait that has evolved in at least 5 planktonic phyla.
  How do Arctic seabirds coordinate parental care in a changing climate?
  Dr S Patrick, Prof B J Hatchwell
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background – The Arctic is experiencing more rapid climate change than any other ecosystem on earth, with potentially devastating consequences for biodiversity in the region.
  Impact of recent climate change on phytoplankton composition in the Arctic Ocean
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Dr C Mahaffey
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Arctic Ocean is undergoing rapid environmental change. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the global average. The areal extent of sea ice has declined by 9% per decade since 1978 (Comiso 2012).
  Mass and energy flow in seafloor ecosystems, testing and tuning deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Deep-sea habitats at water depths over 2000 m cover ~60% of the Earth’s surface and are the largest and least explored environment on the planet (Smith et al.
  Response of ringed seal populations to environmental change in the Canadian Arctic
  Dr R Jeffreys, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr SC Smout, Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing unprecedented rates of environmental change, warming twice as fast as the global average (Hoegh-Guldberg and Bruno, 2010).
  Tides in a changing climate
  Prof C Hughes, Prof R Williams, Dr A Hibbert, Dr J Williams
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The largest contribution to sea level variability in many parts of the world is the tide. In addition to sea level rise, the tides are changing in many parts of the world (Woodworth, 2010).
