  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

  Calcined clays as a reactive alternative to fly ash as a binder in Portland cement concrete
  Dr M Tyrer
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully-funded PhD studentship in partnership with BRE Trust https://www.bretrust.org.uk/) is available to study the use of naturally occurring clays as reactive (pozzolanic) materials for low carbon cement production.
