The Arctic Ocean is undergoing rapid change with unknown consequences for its ecosystems. Understanding how entire food webs are being reshaped in response to these environmental stressors is crucial in understanding the impacts of future change on Arctic ecosystems.
The central hypothesis of this PhD project is that environmental change has significantly altered the size structure and feeding habits of Arctic zooplankton over the past decade. Zooplankton data sets will be compared to variations in phytoplankton biomass, productivity and sea ice from remote sensing datasets giving insight into how Arctic zooplankton communities are affected by environmental change.

Application deadline: 3 February 2017
