About the Project
Policy Impact of Research: Understanding the impact of microorganisms on the subseafloor stores of organic carbon will be a powerful tool for policy makers and stakeholders. The project will produce methods and software that will be released on an open source and freely available platform that can be applied by anybody. The analysis and understanding of complex interactions and feedbacks between microorganisms and their environment will inform management decisions including conservation strategies, the designation of marine protected area implementations and subseafloor exploration, particularly in light of the developing interest in deep sea mining.
Eligibility Criteria and Candidate Profile: Scholarship opportunities are available to candidates of any nationality. Candidates must hold a degree in the natural or physical sciences (e.g. Biology, Earth Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Geography, or related discipline). I am looking for highly motivated, independent students with good communication skills. Previous research experience and knowledge of oceanography, microbiology, biogeochemistry and/or modelling is desirable.
If you are from a non-English speaking country, you will need to provide evidence of English language ability according to the QMUL policy for postgraduate students. For candidates who have not yet met these requirements, we will include this as part of your offer conditions.
How to apply: Opportunities for funding include London NERC DTP and QMUL Principal’s Postgraduate Research Studentships. For further information about the project, eligibility and future application deadlines in 2020/21, please contact Dr James Bradley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
