We have 38 Marine Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in the UK

On Analysis and Design of Submerged Wave Energy Devices

We invite applications for a Ph.D. position in Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The project aims in analyzing new generation of wave energy devices that are fully submerged, namely an Oscillating Submerged Disc, and a Wave Carpet. Read more

Ocean Mixing Parameterisation via Categorisation of Nonlinear Flow Structures - Project 2: Experimental Validation

One of the key challenges for large-scale climate models is to accurately parameterise the mixing which occurs in the oceans. Such mixing occurs at small-scales, well below the grid-resolution of the climate models, and consists of the turbulent exchange of heat and salt between neighbouring regions of fluid. Read more

Measuring social impacts in aquaculture supply chains (MPhil)

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
To be considered for this project, please follow the How to Apply instructions below. Background. The sustainability of global seafood supply has traditionally centred on environmental impact, but recent attention has shifted towards social sustainability and improved worker welfare. Read more

Novel insights into urban pollution of freshwater ecosystems derived from integrative ecotoxicology, genetics and hydrologic modelling

Scientific challenge: Freshwater systems are one of the most threatened habitat types on Earth. Within this context, increases in urbanisation and the effects of anthropogenic climate change have led to a decrease in water quality and availability worldwide. Read more

Understanding process interactions that cause wave overtopping for hazard managers

A 1m rise in mean sea level is almost certain this century and it is estimated that 20% of England’s coastal defences could fail under just half this rise (Committee on Climate Change, 2018). Read more

Augmenting Storm Surge Forecasting with Machine Learning

Storm surges can have economically and societally devastating consequences to coastal communities. Improved forecasting is a fundamental objective for the Flood Forecasting Centre and the longevity of critical infrastructures such as the Thames Barrier. Read more

The impact of sea level rise on flooding in Venice and implications for the MOSE storm surge barrier

Coastal flooding is already one of the most dangerous and costly natural hazards that humanity faces globally and yet it will become even more frequent and challenging to manage because of climate change and other factors. Read more

Mapping worldwide hotspots of future coastal flood hazard

In the coming decades sea level rise and changes in weather extremes, and potentially tides, will increase the frequency and magnitude of coastal flooding for millions of people living in low-lying coastal areas. Read more
