Dear Colleagues,

University of Warwick, UK
NERC Postgraduate Research Studentship : Position Available

Applications are invited for a NERC PhD Studentship in molecular
ecology in association with Dr. Richard Geider at the Marine
Biological Association, Plymouth, UK :-

The molecular regulation of phytoplankton photosynthesis

Phytoplankton photosynthesis plays a key role in removing CO2 from the
atmosphere and sequestering it in the deep sea. However, large areas
of the ocean are often nutrient-limited, which has important
implications for estimates of primary productivity and global C
cycling. This project will set out to determine which nutrient limits
growth of phytoplankton in the natural environment by studying the
biochemical response of the photosynthetic apparatus to various
nutrient-limited growth conditions, and specifically the molecular
regulation of phytoplankton photosynthesis underlying these
mechanisms. This proposal is part of an ongoing collaboration between
Warwick and Plymouth Marine Laboratory/the Marine Biological
Association through which some research cruise experience will be
available. The successful applicant will also be eligible to attend a
summer course in Biological Oceanography in Bermuda.

For further details contact Dr. Dave Scanlan by e-mail:
dp at dna.bio.warwick.ac.uk or phone (01203) 522572 (lab)  or
(01203) 528363 (office)

Prospective applicants who should already possess at least a
2i degree or M.Sc. in a relevant subject should try and contact me as
soon as is possible. A CV with the names, addresses and telephone
numbers of two referees should be sent to Dr. D.J.Scanlan, Department
of Biological Sciences, University of Warwick. Gibbet Hill Road,
Coventry, CV4 7AL, England, UK.
