  (STFC DTP) Magma storage and crystallization in rocky planets: Magma chambers on the Moon?
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr M Hartley, Dr D Neave, Dr K Joy, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Moon records volcanism on a small rocky planet. Lunar lavas were dominantly erupted between ~4.35 and 3 billion years ago. These lavas were sourced by partial melting of different regions of the lunar mantle, giving rise to a range of chemical affiliations and crystallization histories.
  Fractionation of iron-titanium oxide minerals in mafic-ultramafic magmatic systems: Case studies from Greenland and South Africa.PhD in Geology (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr J Andersen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Jens C. Andersen, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Reconstructing the plumbing systems of mid-ocean ridge volcanoes: olivine vs plagioclase-hosted melt inclusions
  Dr C J Lissenberg, Prof K Cashman, Prof C MacLeod
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. petrology, melt inclusion, mid-ocean ridge. Project Background. Interconnected magma reservoirs are the key driver of the dynamics of volcanic systems around the world.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. magma chamber, mid-ocean ridge, crystal mush, deformation, igneous processes, petrology, geochemistry, ophiolites.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. volcanology; igneous geochemistry; geochronology. Project Background.
  The Oxidation State of the Earth’s Mantle
  Dr D Muir, Dr C J Lissenberg, Prof J Blundy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Institution. Cardiff University. Project Key Words. Petrology; mantle; oxidation state, mid-ocean ridge. Project Background.
  (STFC DTP) The Halogen Budget of Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Dr P Clay, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asteroid 4 Vesta is the second largest body in the Asteroid Belt, second to the dwarf planet Ceres. Unlike most asteroids, but similar to Earth, Vesta is differentiated into a silicate crust, mantle and core.
  The origin of layering and platinum ores in the Flatreef of the Bushveld Complex: reactive porous flow in a sill complex?
  Prof W Maier, Dr S Tapster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The Flatreef is a world-class platinum-group element (PGE) deposit recently discovered down-dip from existing mining and exploration operations on the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex.
  Quantifying Hydrothermal Exchanges between Seawater and the Lower Oceanic Crust: Evidence from the Oman Drilling Project
  Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton, Dr R.M. Coggon, Dr J Matter
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermal and chemical exchanges between the oceans and the oceanic crust during hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges exert major controls on the chemistry of seawater.
