Self Funded PhD Project:Autonomous underwater vehicles with breakthrough sensors of ocean acidification (KAISER_U16SF), University of East Anglia
The aim of this PhD project is to explore the use of autonomous underwater gliders with novel chemical sensors in gathering data on variability in the shelf-sea carbon system. The student will work on sensor implementation in the UEA glider facility, glider deployment and piloting, collection and chemical analysis of calibration samples and numerical data interpretation and publication.
 
We seek an enthusiastic team player with strong scientific interests and self-motivation, with good numerical and analytical skills and at least a 2i BSc in Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Oceanography or a similar subject. The student will participate in two or more research cruises.
 
The two primary partners in this project are the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences (Cefas). Cefas will provide ship-time on their research vessel Cefas Endeavour for trials of the glider/sensor package and act as CASE partner for the student. Kyushu University (Japan) will provide sensors and associated knowledge transfer.
