PhD Scholarship – Effects of organic enrichment on animal mediated sediment–seawater solute exchange
Closing date: 01 Jul 2022
Purpose: A fundamental assumption used to argue for the expansion of fish farms into offshore waters is that operating in deeper and more dynamic waters will increase the horizontal dispersion of organic farm wastes and so reduce the impacts on seafloor ecosystem functions. The social license for such expansion, however, will rely on our ability to quantify this advantage. It is anticipated that farm waste released in deep offshore waters will create a larger, more persistent but less intense footprint in the ecosystem than in shallow coastal waters. Depending on the properties of the receiving seafloor ecosystem, the deposition of fish waste may alter the structure and function of the benthic faunal communities, in particular, their influence on the sediment–seawater solute exchange—a process that couples benthic with pelagic ecosystem functions.   The PhD student will conduct a series of laboratory experiments to study the influence of the benthic invertebrate community on the sediment–seawater exchange of dissolved nitrogen and phosphorus as a function of organic enrichment. You will have a university degree (Master/Diploma) in Marine Ecology, Biological Oceanography, Aquatic Microbiology or related fields. We welcome experience in the taxonomic identification of benthic invertebrates and knowledge in sediment biogeochemistry. The ideal candidate features excellent communication skills, proficiency in scientific writing, and a high degree of independence. The successful candidate will join an international project team, led by Associate Professor Kay C. Vopel, including researchers from CSIRO, University of Tasmania, and Griffith University

PhD Scholarship – Investigation of an optimum control strategy for the energy management in Low-Voltage Hydrogen based DC Micro-grids
Closing date: 31 Aug 2022
Purpose: DC-operable products in land and marine systems, as well as the most elements of distributed generation integrated to renewable energy systems such as solar PVs, wind generators, hydrogen, fuel-cells, batteries, supercapacitors etc. are intrinsically in favour of DC systems. These trends are making the move towards DC-microgrids, opening up a huge new research spectrum. To maintain the energy management of supply and demand sides to ensure constant voltage in the common bus, low voltage DCMG requires an optimised controlling topology. In this research, a distributed control strategy to model an efficient and optimised energy management for DC-Microgrids associated with Hydrogen production in an offshore environment will be investigated. The project leader and primary supervisor will be Dr. Kosala Gunawardane, of Auckland University of Technology (AUT). The industry partner for this project will be Pitt & Sherry (Operations) Pty Ltd.
