  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.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the water and volatile inventory of unequilibrated ordinary chrondrites
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. One of the vital ingredients that allowed the emergence of life on the Earth is liquid water. Therefore,understanding the origin(s) of Solar System water, together with other volatile species, is of primaryimportance for the study of life in the universe.
  (STFC DTP) Volatile processing during planetary differentiation: insights from Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. Image looking down at Vesta’s north pole. This image of Vesta was taken from the last sequence of images of NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, looking down at Vesta’s north pole.
  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 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.
  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.
  Martian volcanic systems: using surface strain indicators to investigate magmatically driven stress in the Tharis region, Mars
  Dr E Bramham, Dr M Thomas, Dr S Piazolo, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This exciting project aims to decipher the geological history of Mars utilising the ample spacecraft data collected over the last decade.
  (STFC DTP) Combining neutron diffraction experiments and microstructural analyses to investigate the fracturing of pyroxenes
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
The link between aqueous fluids and potential habitability means that assessing the distribution of liquid water at or near the surface of Mars throughout its history remains a strong focus of missions to Mars.
