  Quantifying the status and success on restored native oyster Ostrea edulis beds in the Solent.
  Prof C Hauton, Dr A Jensen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, the restoration of ostreid bivalves is gaining momentum. In European waters the native oyster Ostrea edulis is the focus of extensive restoration efforts and in the Solent, the Blue Marine Foundation (BMF) have been leading efforts to restore native oysters since 2017.
  Palaeophysiology: metabolism and metabolic evolution of ammonites and belemnites
  Dr C Trueman, Prof R Twitchett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An animal’s metabolic rate (the sum total of chemical activity powering life) is one of the most powerful predictors of ecological performance, co-varying with life history traits such as growth rate, fecundity, activity levels and, in ectotherms, environmental thermal tolerance.
  Temporal variability of the carbon system across the Atlantic Ocean; causes and implications
  Dr S Hartman, Dr R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 25% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by fossil fuel combustion enters the ocean. Without this sink, the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere would be larger than it is.
  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Using genomic data of sponges to reveal patterns of genetic diversity and connectivity in the Mediterranean Sea
  Dr A Riesgo, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the genetic diversity and connectivity patterns of marine invertebrates and how they adapt to their local environments is vital to design conservation strategies.
  Understanding variation in marine protected areas: a spatio-temporal study of species richness and oceanographic patterns across the Galápagos Islands
  Dr M Rius, Dr A Forryan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human impacts across the world’s oceans are causing profound changes in ecosystem structure and species distributions. Understanding such ecosystem-wide changes requires a comprehensive baseline that can be widely used to track, manage and minimise perturbations.
  Modelling the evolution of adaptive responses to climate change across spatial landscapes
  Prof R Hoyle, Dr O Razgour
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Through increasing periods of drought, higher temperatures and extreme events, future climate change will introduce new selection pressures on species.
  Comparative study of anemones from distinct thermal habitats: Highlighting the impact of geographic isolation in promoting evolution of thermal resistant genotypes
  Dr V Modepalli, Prof J Wiedenmann
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acquisition of phototrophic endosymbionts constitutes a key ecological innovation in the evolution of corals, permitting these animals to flourish in oligotrophic waters.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.
