  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
  Asian Monsoon drought and flood intensity: testing predicted response to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr C Xuan, Dr A Crocker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Asian Monsoon (AM) is a major component of the global climate system, affecting the lives of four billion people. Chinese cave deposits suggest [1] that AM intensity is strongly influenced by orbitally forced changes in insolation but only weakly affected by glacial–interglacial cycles.
  The Ultimate Limiting Nutrient for Oceanic Primary Production
  Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Yool, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. In order to know how Earth’s climate system works, we need to understand what controls oceanic primary production.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
  Where did all the carbon go? Understanding and predicting carbon inventories in coarse sediments
  Dr C Thompson, Dr R Parker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

‘Blue carbon’ (BC), or carbon stored long-term in marine environments, is receiving increasing attention from scientists and policy makers, in terms of its capacity to mitigate against climate change by storing CO2and the potential to value these systems as a method of off-setting carbon emissions.
  Ocean acidification monitoring using novel sensing technologies on marine autonomous platforms
  Dr S Loucaides, Dr N Lawrence, Dr M Mowlem, Dr A Nightingale
Application Deadline: 4 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the ocean has become more acidic due to uptake of atmospheric CO2, a process that is projected to continue under current scenarios.
  A more sustainable wastewater treatment technology: aerobic granular sludge
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Yongqiang Liu. Co-supervisor Prof Sonia Heaven. Project description. Municipal wastewater treatment is moving from energy-intensive conventional activated sludge to more advanced technology for sustainability.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty, Prof P Wilson, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof H Scher
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean. Part of this transport is via the ‘solubility carbon pump’ whereby CO2 dissolved in seawater is transported into the interior ocean.
  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
