  Ecology of Dynamic Seasonal Salt Lakes
  Dr V Louca, Prof F Kuepper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seasonal salt lakes present extreme environments, often characterised by low levels of biodiversity and relatively simple food webs.
  Improving Evaluation Strategies for Species Distribution Modelling
  Dr C T Marshall, Dr L Lancaster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate warming is have a variety of impacts on marine species (Poloczanska et al 2013) including broad scale changes in their spatial distribution such as poleward range shifts (Last et al 2011).
  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.
  Quantification of global impacts of static fishing gear using systematic review and meta-analysis
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof M Kaiser
Application Deadline: 25 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of static (passive) fishing gears is widespread around the globe. While static gear are considered more selective and less disturbing to marine environments than fishing gear such as bottom trawls, they are associated with their own unique environmental impacts.
  Understanding the consequences of scallop dredging in relation to seabed habitat types, conservation features and other industry sectors
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof M Kaiser, Dr M Bell
Application Deadline: 25 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will look at both broad scale and regional issues associated with scallop dredge fisheries in the UK.
  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.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Production of carotenoids from Dunaliella salina: Process development with red-light for large scale production
  Dr Y Xu, Dr P J Harvey
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

9-cis β-carotene has been implicated to play a central role in protecting against diseases including retinal dystrophies, chronic plaque psoriasis and atherosclerosis, and can be produced in high concentration by the halotolerant green microalga Dunaliella salina, especially in the presence of red light.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Coastal Dynamics from Space. PhD studentship starting 1 January 2020
  Prof G Masselink
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increased spatial and temporal resolution of satellite imagery has made remote sensing an extremely powerful tool for studying coastal change and dynamics, potentially linked to climate change impacts.
  The Macroecology of Changing Marine Ecosystems
  Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The marine environment covers most of our planet, and is vital for food provision, climate regulation, and biodiversity.
  Global warming, plankton functional diversity, and the biological ocean pump
  Dr B Chen, Dr N Banas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We all know that global warming is a serious issue for the future of humankind and is intimately related with anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
  Mathematical ecology of ocean food webs
  Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine sonar records have long documented the existence of a layer of acoustic scattering at around 400m depth throughout the world’s oceans, which can undertake diel (night-time) vertical migrations to the near-surface waters.
  Protecting our seas using computers - Modelling and forecasting the expansion of a highly invasive seaweed
  Dr B Chen, Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This fully-funded 3.5 year studentship will remain open only until filled. We recommend applying immediately. In this project, you will meet with the challenge of developing an individual based model to simulate the growth and dispersal of a highly invasive seaweed (Japanese eelgrass) driven by coastal ocean currents.
