PHD Opportunity: The changing carbonate chemistry of the Southern Ocean

University of East Anglia

Until now, sea ice dynamics and ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean have been investigated in isolation. Here, you will investigate the interplay between both. This PhD project has these objectives:

  • To quantify the progression of ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean over recent decades;
  • To determine the processes affecting Southern Ocean carbonate chemistry and in particular the role of sea ice.
  • To study the seasonal cycle of the Southern Ocean CO2 sink and its drivers.

PhD opportunity: Impacts of ocean acidification on the –omics responses in green-shell mussels

University of Auckland

The School of Biological Sciences, University of Auckland, New Zealand, invites applications for a PhD project on the transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic responses of green-shell mussels to ocean acidification. This project is part of the CARIM project – (https://www.niwa.co.nz/coasts-and-oceans/research-projects/carim-coastal-acidification-rate-impacts-management) which examines the ecosystem effects of ocean acidification on primary production, food quality and habitat availability, with a particular focus on the sensitivity of the different life stages of iconic NZ species including pāua, greenshell mussel and snapper larvae.
