The Scottish Alliance for Geosciences Environment and
Society (SAGES), the British Geological Survey
and The Scottish Association for Marine Sciences
(SAMS) would like to announce a PhD studentship
opportunity to work on the geography and geochemistry
of Scottish deep-sea coral reefs.
SECRETS FROM A DEEP REEF: Structure, Biogeography and
Palaeoclimate Reconstruction from Mingulay Coral Reef
Cold water corals are a hot topic – from their
beautiful yet enigmatic reef structures to the ocean
and climate secrets recorded in their skeletons. We
offer an exciting opportunity to work at the leading
edge of deep-coral research studying reef
architecture, palaeoclimate reconstruction and the
dynamics of the ocean system using coral/sediment
cores recovered from a Scottish deep-coral reef.
We're looking for a student with a background in
geology/chemistry and an enthusiasm for studying deep
sea coral reefs and paleoclimate.
Applications close 12th February 2008
