  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.
  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.
  What controls the warming of the Antarctic Bottom Water supply to the Atlantic Ocean?
  Dr p Abrahamsen, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the last three decades, the Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) that fills the bulk of the ocean abyss has exhibited a striking warming and contraction in volume over much of the world ocean, particularly in the Atlantic basin.
  Novel microprobes for the geochemical gradients in diffusive boundary layers around marine calcifiers
  Dr G Denault, Prof G Foster
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusive boundary layers are common between any two media, e.g. at the sediment-water interface. Indeed, marine organisms, like corals and foraminifera, sense their environment through micron-scale diffusive boundary layers (DBL).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Dynamic phytoplankton iron physiology and its impacts on global ecosystem function
  Dr B Ward, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary production couples solar energy arriving at the Earth’s surface to global biogeochemistry, linking elemental cycles together through the synthesis of organic molecules.
