Swire PhD Scholarships

Applications are now invited for two prestigious PhD scholarships tenable at The Swire Institute of Marine Science (SWIMS) of The University of Hong Kong (HKU), namely ‘The James Henry Scott Hong Kong PhD Scholarship‘ and ‘The Swire Hong Kong PhD Scholarship‘.

The Swire Institute of Marine Science focuses on marine ecology, especially the behavioural and ecophysiological responses of marine organisms to environmental and anthropogenic stresses. Specific areas include grazer-algal interactions and rocky shore community structure; ecophysiology of marine invertebrates; fish behaviour and reproduction; fisheries and mariculture; environmental toxicology; bioremediation and ecological risk assessment. Research concentrates on intertidal, particularly rocky shore organisms; corals and reef fishes; octopuses and cuttlefish as well as subtidal benthos, with an overall focus on the effective management and conservation of marine resources.
