  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences - Determining processes of co2 capture with steel slags: implications for mitigating rising co2 levels
  Dr J MacDonald
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Limiting the CO2 concentration in Earth’s atmosphere, and therefore global temperature rise, is imperative. Conceptually, by-products from certain industrial processes, e.g.
  PhD Geographical and Earth Sciences: Meteorites from the Australian outback: A new terrestrial climate proxy?
  Prof M Lee, Dr L Daly
Applications accepted all year round
The goal of this project is to test the novel idea that meteorites can provide a detailed record of changes in the Earth’s climate.
  Tracing Iron Sources and Artefacts in Viking-Age Scotland
  Dr S Harrison, Dr J MacDonald
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Project Summary. From the 9th to 11th centuries, small groups of ‘Vikings’ transformed large areas of Northern Europe and the North Atlantic, including Scotland.
  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.
  PhD Geographical and Earth Sciences: Meteorite bombardment of Earth at the Triassic/Jurassic boundary
  Prof M Lee
Applications accepted all year round
The history of Earth has been punctuated by a series of highly energetic impact events, some of which have significantly affected the terrestrial biosphere.
  PhD Geographical & Earth Sciences: The provenance of volatiles in asteroidal and planetary meteorites
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis
Applications accepted all year round
Meteorites contain volatiles including water and CO2 that have been used with great effect to explore Solar System processes – meteorites from asteroids can tell us about the delivery of water to the early Earth, whereas Martian meteorites provide unique information on and the hydrosphere and atmosphere of the Red Planet.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Space weathering of carbonaceous asteroids and its astrobiological implications
  Prof M Lee, Dr C Persano, Dr L Daly
Applications accepted all year round
Two missions are currently en route to collect samples from carbonaceous asteroids and return them to Earth. The OSIRIS-Rex mission (NASA) will sample Bennu, whereas Hayabusa2 (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) will visit the asteroid Ryugu.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences - Changing faces: social enterprise and geographies of appearance
  Prof H Parr
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
This collaborative PhD is based on a partnership between academics researching the geographies of (mental) health/disability and Remake Up (http://remakeup.org/), a social enterprise in Glasgow that uses profits to fund subsidised or free permanent make-up (paramedical tattooing) for those with disfigurement or critical illness experiences involving facial or other bodily change.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: CO2 capture at heritage industrial sites – a new way to mitigate anthropogenic climate change?
  Dr J MacDonald
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Anthropogenically-induced climate change is one of the grand challenges facing humanity. Mitigating the effects of this challenge could take many forms including carbon capture and storage as highlighted by the recent IPCC report.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: High Resolution Palaeoenvironmental Reconstruction from Lake Suigetsu, Japan
  Dr R Staff, Prof M Leng
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
In light of 21st century anthropogenically-influenced climatic change, one of the main scientific endeavours of our generation is to gain a fundamental understanding of the earth’s climate system.
