  The Impact of Changes in Management, Climate and Sea Level on Blue Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Coastal Wetlands
  Prof J Smith, Dr A Brand, Prof D Paterson, Prof J Baxter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal wetlands provide numerous critical ecosystem services, including storm surge protection, fisheries production, improvement of water quality, and carbon sequestration, and are potentially one of the most effective ecosystems on the planet for slowing global warming.
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  Artificial skyglow impacts on the chronobiology of marine organisms
  Dr A Ellison, Dr S Jenkins
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecological impact of artificial light at night has been a rapidly growing field of global change science in recent years.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  Behavioural and physiological responses to changing environments in wild grey seals (Halichoerus grypus)
  Dr S D Twiss
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms have evolved mechanisms to cope with natural stressors, but rapid environmental change is subjecting species to new threats or more unpredictable and extreme natural stressors.
  The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) call for PhD Studentship applications 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) offers up to two competitively. awarded and generously funded MPhil/PhD studentships annually.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.
  Angry Damsels: Do Species Interactions After Overfishing Enhance or Inhibit Coral Reef Recovery?
  Dr S Keith, Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coral reef species are undergoing widespread mortality under increasingly frequent mass coral bleaching events, which will continue until global efforts reduce CO2 emissions.
  What’s the Matter with Walruses?
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Walruses, the tusked and massive marine mammals, spend much of their time resting on polar sea ice, but when that ice recedes in the summer months, they must find shore.
  EASTBIO: Application of MinION Nanopore sequencing to understand the impact of environmental changes on sentinel indicators of ecosystem health
  Dr E Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are increasingly aware that human, veterinary and environmental health is intricately linked and farming and food production systems must not only be resilient to environmental changes and threats but the systems themselves must also perform with minimal environmental impact.

  Dr JM Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
