Training tomorrow’s leaders in environmental science

PML's 2016 PhD Students with Dr Pennie Lindeque.

 

PML is delighted to welcome the arrival of 8 new PhD students, to be trained across the full range of multidisciplinary marine science topics available here.

The new PhD students, who joined in September this year, will be covering a diverse range of project topics during their time at PML; from the impact of rapid climate change on Antarctic krill and the Southern Ocean food web, to molecular interactions in a microalgae-virus system.

Some of the students will be studying under a collaborative scheme known as the Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), which involve PML working with a number of University partners to train tomorrow’s leaders in Environmental Science.
