This is an exciting opportunity for a field-based PhD project focussed on climate change and fishing impacts on rocky and coral reefs around the world. It will require learning the identifications for thousands of reef species and undertaking surveys using Reef Life Survey (www.reeflifesurvey.com) methods in a diverse range of reefs from high latitude rocky reefs to tropical coral reefs.
Given the opportunity to analyse a large dataset of change in reef communities globally over a 10 year period, the project will also require some advanced data handling and statistical skills. Contribution to project design is expected, but fieldwork plans must necessarily be aligned with a larger project to survey previously surveyed reefs.
