  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
  Quantum biology on a chip: investigating the optical properties of single biomolecules within nanofabricated photonic devices
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Dr L Sapienza
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Luca Sapienza. Project description. The progress in fundamental science and technology has allowed researchers to explore intriguing, but often elusive, quantum effects in atoms, ions and semiconductor nanostructures.
  Quantifying the status and success on restored native oyster Ostrea edulis beds in the Solent.
  Prof C Hauton, Dr A Jensen, Dr J Preston, Dr I Hendy
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.
  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.
  Plant breeding for food safety
  Dr G Taylor, Prof B Keevil
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security often focuses on food production, but reduced food waste and enhanced quality and safety are important targets for food resilience.
  The Taphonomy of Archaeological Molecular Biomarkers
  Prof A.W Pike, Prof G S Attard, Dr S Bray
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular biomarkers have the potential to reveal archaeologically invisible aspects of the past.
  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.
  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.
  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, Prof C Brownlee
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.
  Integrating marine fungi into the structure and function of pelagic ecosystems.
  Dr M Cunliffe, Dr B Ward, Prof ME Edwards
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though marine fungi have been known to exist since the 19th century, the application of molecular ecology tools has established a foundational understanding of the widespread distribution and diversity of the ocean mycobiome (Amend et al 2019).
