  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 in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Exploring the social, historical and environmental legacies of steel slag
  Dr S Naylor
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The closure of steel works in the UK has had well-documented social and economic effects on former steelmaking communities. The most tangible remains of former steelworks is often the industrial waste product.
  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.
  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: How is atmospheric CO2 captured by steel slag
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
This project will investigate the crystallinity and crystallography of calcite which has precipitated during sequestration of atmospheric CO2 by steel slag.
  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper makingThis project will investigate the composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making, using a case study site at Milngavie, Scotland.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: How life and steel slag interact – physical, chemical and biological breakdown of slag and the implications for remediation
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. Worldwide, it is estimated that steelmaking produces up to 250 million tonnes of waste slag per year.
  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.
  PhD position in quantifying lightning as source of prebiotic molecules on the early Earth and other worlds
  Dr C Helling, Dr E Stüeken
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
In 1953, Miller & Urey reported the production of amino acids as the result of a lightning discharge experiment.
  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.
