  Stratified or not-stratified or somewhere in between: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s outer core, the source of Earth’s magnetic field, is considered to be well mixed due to the fast convection (with velocities on the order of 10s km/yr) and the low viscosity of the liquid iron-nickel alloy.
  16 NERC PhD studentships for Earth and Environmental Sciences (IAPETUS)

  Fully finded PhD Scholarships in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment
 PhD research scholarship opportunities exist in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, Monash University for, high-quality, dedicated, well-motivated and enthusiastic students.
  Sustainable construction: Enhancing earth brick strength and durability through interdisciplinary analyses and biomimicry
  Dr M Vahdati, Prof I M Jones, Dr W Matthews, Dr T Lees
Applications accepted all year round
This multidisciplinary project spanning built environment engineering, archaeology and biological sciences is concerned with a novel sustainable technique for enhancing the strength and durability of unfired earth bricks.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Delivery of water to early Earth by carbonaceous meteorites
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis
Applications accepted all year round
This project asks whether the Earth’s hydrosphere could have come from outer space via water-rich meteorites. The focus of this work will be on analysing the abundance and hydrogen isotopic composition of water in Mighei-like (CM) carbonaceous chondrites.
  How hot is the bottom of Earth’s mantle?
  Dr A Walker, Dr C Davies, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Can you combine geophysics, fluid dynamics and mineralogy to construct a deep-Earth thermometer and better constrain Earth’s energy budget?.
  Predicting the next global geomagnetic reversal using machine learning
  Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s magnetic field, generated by turbulent convection in the liquid outer core, has reversed many times over its 3.5 billion-year history, at a present rate of about 2-3 times per million years (Stern, 2002) The last global reversal took place 780,000 years ago, leading to speculation that we are “overdue”.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
  Improving Paleointensity: A key to understanding the past and future of Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr G Paterson, Prof R Holme, Prof A Biggin
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The strength of Earth’s ancient magnetic field (paleointensity) is a uniquely powerful probe of the evolution of the planet on which we live, allowing constraint on Earth’s dynamics and thermal history.
