We have 18 Oceanography PhD Research Projects

PhD: Paleoclimate reconstruction of Aotearoa New Zealand over the Late Quaternary (~1 million years)

As part of a new project funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden fund, we are looking to recruit a PhD candidate (fully funded over 3 years at the University of Auckland) to lead the analysis of Quaternary paleoclimate record from the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand and to become part of our international research team.

Striking Gold - nutritional manipulation of gold pigmentation in barramundi

Project summary. Australian farmed barramundi exhibit “greying” in the flesh which reduces consumer attractiveness. Barramundi exhibit wide variation in their skin colouration, with two rare colour variants (golden-skinned and platinum-skinned) present. Read more

Development of a framework for maritime human risk-informed design

Human operators play a crucial role in terms of achieving safe and efficient marine operations. Because of significant human involvement in maritime operations, it is not surprising to observe that when a maritime accident happens it is often attributed to some sort of human error. Read more

On Analysis and Design of Submerged Wave Energy Devices

We invite applications for a Ph.D. position in Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The project aims in analyzing new generation of wave energy devices that are fully submerged, namely an Oscillating Submerged Disc, and a Wave Carpet. Read more

Ocean Mixing Parameterisation via Categorisation of Nonlinear Flow Structures – Project 2: Experimental Validation

One of the key challenges for large-scale climate models is to accurately parameterise the mixing which occurs in the oceans. Such mixing occurs at small-scales, well below the grid-resolution of the climate models, and consists of the turbulent exchange of heat and salt between neighbouring regions of fluid. Read more

Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output). Read more

Understanding historical climate change using multiple data sources

Background. Understanding how temperatures have changed since the start of the industrial revolution is key to understanding how human activity is likely to shape future climate, as well as for the evaluation of climate model simulations. Read more
