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.

NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Will ocean acidification increase the toxicity of chronic coastal pollutants?

University of Exeter

Using a combination of aquarium based experiments and field work, this studentship will build on this previous research to examine OA pollutant interactions over a range of priority pollutants and pharmaceuticals expected to be pH sensitive within the OA range. It will also examine the role of organisms’ natural exposure to varying pH within their natural habitats in determining their sensitivities to combined OA-pollutant exposures.

Postdoctoral Opportunity: Fisheries Oceanography and Eastern Boundary Upwelling Ecosystems

University of South Carolina

The University of South Carolina (Columbia, South Carolina, USA) and the Belle W. Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Sciences is seeking a postdoctoral fellow, funded by the Nippon Foundation-Nereus Program, to join our interdisciplinary team of researchers to explore the responses of forage fish populations in eastern boundary upwelling ecosystems to physical and biogeochemical variability associated with future climate change. The goal of the project is estimation of fisheries productivity given projected changes in upwelling intensity and seasonality, nutrient stoichiometry, acidification, and plankton production and composition.

Postdoctoral opportunity: Ocean and Coastal Acidification and Hypoxia Effects on Marine and Estuarine Organisms

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The participant will collaborate with a team of EPA scientists on several papers and laboratory-based research efforts investigating the effects of ocean and nutrient-enhanced coastal acidification on marine and estuarine organisms, including coral, invertebrates, and fish. The research includes laboratory investigations of the interactive effects of acidification and hypoxia on a range of species and life stages of estuarine organisms.

Fellowship: Effects of ocean acidification on habitat and organisms in benthic coastal habitats of the Mediterranean Sea

Italian Ministry of Education

The investigation is aimed to analyze the composition, structure and functional traits of the macrobenthic communities (phyto- and zoo benthos) in four sites, located around the coast of the Island of Ischia.
