  The Search for Ancient Supernovae
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr M Malek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Core-collapse supernovae are amongst the most energetic events in the Universe. A single supernova will outshine an entire galaxy, yet the light is less than 1% of the energy that is released.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Volcanological and petrogenetic research in the various eroded volcanic centres of the North Atlantic Palaeogene Igneous Province (NAPIP) have greatly informed our understanding of processes in both caldera volcanoes and flood basalt magmatism (e.g., Gooday et al., 2018).
  Evaluating the contribution of transposons to agricultural domestication. PhD Biosciences (SWBio DTP)
  Dr A Hayward
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Alex Hayward, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Depositional architecture and deformation of an active interbasinal relay zone: Corinth Isthmus, Greece
  Dr R Collier, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Relay zones in active rifts are areas where strain is distributed between overlapping normal faults. At the scale of the major basin-bounding faults, interbasinal relay zones (or accommodation zones) separate depocentres along the rift axis.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Philosophy

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Department of Philosophy is at the forefront of philosophy research. We have strong research links with other universities and world-leading academic staff.
  Unravelling the mysteries of plate tectonics
  Dr M Maffione, Dr A R Hastie
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plate tectonics is the most unifying and revolutionary theory in Earth sciences. However, 50 years after its formulation fundamental questions about how plate tectonics works still remain unanswered.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  A hidden record of early animal evolution? Exploring the Cambrian diversity of acritarchs and small carbonaceous fossils (CENTA2-SGGE19-HARV2)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr B Pedder, Dr S Jensen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microfossils offer a rich record of early animal evolution and the attendant reconfiguring of ecosystems.
  The early Palaeozoic evolution of Vietnam (CENTA2-SGGE18-HARV1)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr J A Zalasiewicz
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project follows in the footsteps of the French Indochinese Geological Survey, who in the first decades of the 20th century discovered many new Palaeozoic fossils in northern Vietnam and southern China.
  Fault systems and fluid-rock interactions in the oceanic lithosphere: Implications for carbon capture
  Dr E Mariani, Dr P Gonzales, Prof J Wheeler, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to unravel the controls of hydrothermal fault activity on fluid pathways in the oceanic lithosphere and on the timing, rate and distribution of serpentinisation and carbonation reactions in mantle rocks.
