  Exploring tephrostratigraphic links of climate records in southern England with continental Europe for the last 15,000 years
  Dr S Wulf, Dr M Hardiman, Dr D Giles
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the Department of Geography and will be supervised by Dr Sabine Wulf, Dr Mark Hardiman and Dr Dave Giles.
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  Understanding regional basin evolution through integrated global palaeo-Earth systems models and numerical stratigraphic forward modelling
  Prof P Burgess, Prof D Faulkner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeo-Earth systems models (PESMs) calculating palaeoclimate, denudation and palaeo-oceanic tides and currents could potentially provide important input parameters useful for process-based forward modelling approaches to reservoir prediction.
  Resolving the timescale of south-central African palaeoenvironments and their impact on human behaviour and evolution
  Dr K Penkman, Prof L Barham, Dr T S White
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Timing is everything. accurate dating of the geological record is essential to understand our planet’s history, but beyond the limit of radiocarbon dating (~50,000 years) material becomes difficult to date.
  Past, present and future of permafrost peatlands
  Dr P Morris, Dr G Swindles
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The Arctic is experiencing more rapid warming than anywhere else on the planet (Cohen et al., 2014), and this trend is projected to accelerate in coming decades, even under modest emissions scenarios (Collins et al., 2013).
  Reconstructing lost worlds – Quaternary continental Ostracoda as tools in geoarchaeology
  Dr P Frenzel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ostracods are one of the main palaeontological proxies in Quaternary continental systems because of their ecological sensitiveness, wide distribution, often high abundance and high diversity.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  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: High Resolution Palaeoenvironmental Reconstruction from Lake Suigetsu, Japan
  Dr R Staff, Prof M Leng
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
In light of 21st century anthropogenically-influenced climatic change, one of the main scientific endeavours of our generation is to gain a fundamental understanding of the earth’s climate system.
  Miocene Evolution of the Asian Monsoon
  Dr A Boom, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project will reconstruct rainfall amounts by using state of the art proxies and will contribute to or understanding of the global climate system.
