  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.
  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  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.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty
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
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
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.
  Conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels for energy storage.
  Dr C.A. Ponce-de-Leon-Albarran
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is currently 411 parts per million (ppm) and increases 2 ppm/year possibly due to fossil fuel consumption, deforestation, as well as natural processes contributing to the greenhouse effect such as global warming.
  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.
  Antarctica before ice sheets: polar climate history of past greenhouse worlds.
  Dr S Bohaty, Dr CD Hillenbrand
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the extremely warm global ’greenhouse’ period 50 million years ago, Antarctica was mostly ice free and hosted temperate forests in coastal regions of the continent.
