PhD Fellowship between Greece-Denmark-Spain-Cyprus

Closing date: 9th March 2018

This an exciting opportunity for a candidate interested in developing a suite of integrated skills to work in marine science. MixITiN ESR5

will be based in Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) and undertake secondments in the Marine Biology Section of Kobenhavns Universitet (Copenhagen, Denmark), CSIC (Spain) and AP Marine (Cyprus) to enhance our understanding of the ecophysiology and ecology of a specific group of mixotrophic plankton that engage in “body snatching” to acquire their photosystems. These organisms play an important role in ecology and trophic dynamics.

ESR5 will work in close collaboration with ESR3 (see www.mixotroph.org).

Supervisory Team: Dr Paraskevi Pitta (Greece; Primary Supervisor at host institute), Dr Albert Calbet (CSIC Spain), Prof. Per Juel Hansen (UCPH Denmark), Mr Antonis Petrou (AP Marine Cyprus; secondment supervisor)

Objectives: ESR5 will explore the interannual variability of mixotrophic pelagic ciliates (general non-constitutive-mixotrophs GNCMs) as part of the microbial food web of the oligotrophic Eastern Mediterranean.

Secondments:

E5.S1 Host UCPH; supervisor Prof Hansen; 2mo in Yr1. Purpose: culture techniques

E5.S2 Host CSIC; supervisor Dr Calbet; 2mo in Yr2. Purpose: dilution techniques

E5.S3 Host AP Marine; supervisor Mr Petrou; 3mo in Yr3. Purpose: water quality monitoring & reporting.
