Funded PhD projects in Ocean Biogeochemistry with the National Oceanography 

Up to 15 funded studentships are available to study ocean biogeochemistry at 
the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton in conjunction with the NERC 
COMICS project and the SPITFIRE NERC Doctoral Training Partnership.
Details on the projects can be found here:

COMICS (Controls over Ocean Mesopelagic Interior Carbon Storage) is an 
ambitious project aimed at understanding the controls on the biological carbon 
pump, with cruises planned to South Georgia and Benguela. For more details see

SPITFIRE provides an innovative multi-disciplinary experience for the effective 
training of future leaders in environmental science, engineering, technology 
development, business, and policy. Unique features of SPITFIRE include 
opportunities for placements at a range of prestigious international research 
organisations or industrial and policy partners.
All students will be registered at the University of Southampton and will 
undertake their PhD project research within the University or one of the 
hosting partner organisations.

The Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems group at NOC is globally renowned as a 
leading centre of excellence in biological carbon pump research. In the group, 
plankton ecologists, numerical modellers, remote sensing specialists and 
particle flux geochemists work together to address the most significant 
problems in biological and biogeochemical oceanography.

For further information on the projects, individuals are encouraged to contact 
supervisors directly. For further details and applications, visit

The closing date for applications is 2nd January 2017.
