Announcement of opportunity for studentship proposals

Closing date: 16:00 on 26 October 2010

Proposals are invited for studentships as part of the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme. This £12m collaborative programme is a Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) accredited programme and is co-funded by NERC, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC).

This integrated strategic programme directly relates to the delivery of the NERC strategy (Earth system science and biodiversity science themes) and the UK government’s strategic objectives with respect to adapting to, and mitigating, climate change and ensuring a healthy resilient, productive and diverse natural environment.

The aim of this call is to fund up to three studentships that will address Science Deliverable 5 of the programme:

Provision of evidence from the palaeo record of past changes in ocean acidity and resultant changes in marine species’ composition and Earth system function.”

Joint supervision at the national and international level is strongly encouraged.

Eligibility for this programme includes the UK government departments’ marine laboratories.
