The National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool (formerly the Proudman 
Oceanographic Laboratory) is seeking to recruit two PhD students for 3 
fully-funded studentships. The studentships commence in October 2013 and can be 
selected from one of the following projects:

        • The Impact of Geothermal and Hydrothermal fluxes on the Abyssal Ocean 

        • Into the Abyss: Understanding Deep Ocean Internal Tides

        • Air-sea coupling in the coastal ocean: exploring marine boundary 
layer dynamics and implications for regional climate and weather prediction

        • The coastal ocean atmosphere boundary layer and air-sea momentum 

        • Wave energy in the Pentland Firth

        • The impact of sea ice loss on freshwater pathways and transformation 
in the Arctic basin

        • Identifying and characterizing shelf edge cascading on multi-decadal 

        • The Bering Strait Throughflow and Sea Level

        • Global and regional sea level response to geoengineering by 2100

        • Using ocean gliders to unravel the physical controls on phytoplankton 
layering in coastal seas

        • Predictability of Regional Sea Level Dynamics

        • The life cycle of high-frequency internal waves in shelf seas; from 
generation to dissipation

        • How do carbon emissions affect the ocean cycling of carbon and sea 
level rise?

        • Variability in Estuarine Processes: from intratidal to annual time 
scales in a hypertidal estuary

        • Physical Controls on Nutrient Fluxes on Hypertidal Estuaries

        • The fate of freshwater in a high-­energy coastal system:  
interpreting observations and improving models

        • The evolution of turbulence within a seasonally stratifying shelf sea

All applicants should have, or expect to achieve, a first class or upper second 
degree in a relevant numerate discipline such as physics, mathematics, or
