Extreme Events in the Anthropocene Ocean - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
About the Project
There is growing recognition that, in the ocean just as on land, climate change might stack the deck in favour of more intense and longer lasting extreme events. Marine heatwaves and extreme low-oxygen events have been observed in the recent past, and their persistence can have profound consequences for marine life. This project will use state-of-the-art modelling approaches to explore the risks posed to biodiversity by marine extreme events in the modern ocean and in the future.
Why Choose this Opportunity
You will receive training in how to use state-of-the-art ocean-climate models to explore climate change impacts. This will include opportunities to collaborate with leading oceanographers and climate scientists both in the UK and around the world.
A strong quantitative background is required, and programming experience is desirable but not essential. Training will be provided on most aspects of the project.
About the programme
The Cabot Institute Masters by Research is a unique opportunity to work with a leading supervisor to deliver a one-year research project that you are passionate about. The programme will bring together exceptional students from all backgrounds with a common mission – protecting the planet and securing our future. As well as learning from your supervisor, you will learn from your fellow students; coming together to share your ideas and developing your problem-solving skills as part of an interdisciplinary team over the year. As well as being hosted within the Cabot Institute you will have a direct relationship within the relevant School for your research area, allowing you to fully take advantage of a wide-ranging research community.
Alongside your research project, you will benefit from a unique personal development and transferable skills training schedule. These unaccredited, optional events will give you the opportunity to come together with your peers to improve your research skills and develop an innovative approach to the global challenges we face today. You will also be encouraged to propose your own interests for a seminar series, giving you a unique platform to mould your studies and get involved directly with the programme. The training schedule will focus on:
• Interdisciplinarity & Collaboration
• Innovation & Enterprise
• Making your research a success
• Research communications
• Ignite your interests (your chance to propose ideas for a seminar series)
You will also gain access to the Cabot Institute’s network of experts across academia, government, business and industry via networking events. These opportunities will not only support your research, but give you the edge in your future career, whatever that may be.
