  Improving temperature observations from Space to close the energy budget of the Earth in support of UNFCCC objectives and the Paris Agreement
  Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main impact of greenhouse gases on the Earth’s system is a reduction in energy exiting the top of the atmosphere and increased energy storage in the Earth system.
  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
  Novel platforms for integrated quantum devices based on rare earth doped insulating materials
  Dr M Mazzera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer a 3-year PhD position for a talented, proactive, and strongly motivated candidate who will contribute building a new setup with potential for ground breaking scientific research in the field of solid-state quantum memories for quantum communication applications.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  International Cotutelle PhD project: Self-diffusion in iron alloys at extreme conditions
  Dr O Lord, Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project gives the candidate the opportunity to perform experimental research into the structure and chemistry of planetary interiors at two world class institutions, the University of Bristol (UK) and Macquarie University (Sydney Australia).
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in the diamond stability field
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our knowledge of the melt compositions that can be produced in the Earth’s mantle is very good in the depth range up to 130km, but much more rudimentary at higher pressures because experiments have not yet been done following a close raster of realistic melting conditions.
  Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization
  Dr L Morrill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dr Louis Morrill (https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/69691-morrill-louis) is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project “Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization”.
  Global Volcanic SO2 Flux and Ground Deformation, using Sentinel mission data
  Research Group: Volcanology
  Prof M Burton, Dr C Hayer, Prof A Hooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite remote sensing allows for continuous monitoring of hazardous and geographically distant volcanoes. Two key methods involve monitoring gas emission, using spectrometers, and measuring ground deformation, using InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar).
  A new quantum theoretical approach to predict new room temperature superconductors and rewrite our understandingof deep carbon storage in the Earth’s mantle
  Dr C Weber
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years progress has been made on developing density functional theory (DFT) approaches to equation of state calculation,.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Weddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current research requires the development of a space situational awareness system for classifying Earth-orbiting artificial satellites.
  Earth abundant chalcogenides for silicon photonics
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang, Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3.5 year fully funded PhD studentship is available in the Department of Physics at the University of York co-supervised by Dr Yue Wang and Prof Keith McKenna.
