PhD in climate change on reefs – any nationality eligible
The University of Exeter has advertised a fully-funded PhD scholarship studying the impacts of climate change on coral reefs. The post will be based at Exeter though will likely include time at the University of Queensland. The project will focus on the application of global climate models to coral reefs and will involve collaboration with climate scientists at the UK Hadley Data Centre, which generate several of the models used by the IPCC. There may also be scope to study the impact of climate change on ecosystem services.
The PhD will be supervised by Profs Peter Mumby and Peter Cox. Candidates from any nationality can apply and further details can be found at:
