  The geochemistry of chert fossils in deep time
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Tartese, Prof R Wogelius, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Chert is a key lithology for the preservation of Precambrian life. These rocks, which are composed primarily of microcrystalline silica, host a myriad of important remains of early life.
  The effect of polysialyltransferase modulation on tumour cell migration
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr R Falconer
Applications accepted all year round
One of the main reasons for failure of cancer therapy today is an inability to control tumour dissemination, with secondary tumour deposits the cause of morbidity.
  (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.
  Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes
  Dr S Ebmeier, Dr D Ferguson, Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
  Unravelling early teleost relationships: diversification at the dawn of the most successful fish radiation
  Dr S Giles, Dr Z Johanson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
With over 30,000 living species ubiquitous in all aquatic environments, teleost ray-finned fishes represent the largest living vertebrate group.
  Nitrogen as a building block of life in subsurface serpentinizing systems and early life on Earth
  Dr P Lam, Dr J Matter
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. In recent years, serpentinization – the water/rock reactions coupling oxidation of ferrous iron to the generation of hydrogen – has been hypothesized to be central to the emergence of life.
  NERC GW4 FRESH CDT - The electric ecology of freshwater habitats
  Prof D Robert, Prof M Genner
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Essential to all biomes, freshwater is put under pressure by urbanisation and human populations, by demands of intensive agriculture, and various damages incurred through anthropogenic pollution.
  Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy
  Dr N Gardiner, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life.
  White dwarfs, exoplanets and fundamental physics
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof M Barstow, Dr S Casewell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
White dwarfs are the end products of the life cycles of more than 90% of all stars. This makes them important laboratories for studying stellar evolution and the behavior of matter at extremes of temperature and density.
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
