  Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the North Sea
  Dr J Godbold, Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr C Garcia
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change.
  Multimodal imaging of airborne particulate matter (PM) pollution as a means of source apportionment
  Prof G Foster, Dr M Loxham, Dr R B Cook, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Airborne particulate matter (PM) is a key risk factor for premature death (8.9 million per annum worldwide) and reduced quality of life due to a range of diseases of the respiratory and cardiovascular system, with growing evidence for roles in metabolic and cognitive impairments [1].
  The Ecological and Evolutionary consequences of tropicalisation
  Dr P Fenberg, Dr M Rius
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Climate warming is creating novel ecological communities whereby species compositions and interactions differ from a historical baseline.
  Dissecting the microbial foodweb: determining the influence of phytoplankton derived organic matter substrates on bacterial growth efficiency
  Dr C Evans, Prof C Moore
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Bacterial growth plays a key role in regulating carbon and nutrients fluxes, and energy flow in marine ecosystems.
  Carbon fluxes in mangrove – seagrass ecosystems
  Prof J Dash, Dr V Byfield, Dr C Evans, Dr A Lichtschlag
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Mangroves are an important and unique costal ecosystem. The carbon storage potential of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems is widely recognized [1].
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  Microplastic hotspots on the deep seafloor: Investigating the role of seafloor currents in microplastic transport and accumulation
  Dr M Clare, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  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.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Dr K Oliver
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
  What controls the flows and mixing rates around Southern Ocean seamounts?
  Dr A Brearley, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr D Smeed, Dr A Meijers
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Throughout the global ocean, regions of rough bottom topography are important locations of water mass mixing and transformation.
