  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements in the lithosphere
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements between minerals (sulfides and silicates) and melts and how they relate to volatile elements.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in the diamond stability field
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our knowledge of the melt compositions that can be produced in the Earth’s mantle is very good in the depth range up to 130km, but much more rudimentary at higher pressures because experiments have not yet been done following a close raster of realistic melting conditions.
  Geochemistry of Germanium in igneous rocks, minerals and melts
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard, Assoc Prof E Belousova, Prof D Jacob
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent analytical developments in trace element geochemistry have made it possible to accurately analyse the fractionation of germanium from silicon during partial melting of rocks and in igneous crystal fractionation series.
  Metasomatic products of alkaline melt infiltration in the continental lithosphere
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alkaline incipient melts produced by melting at 100-200km depth beneath continents carry dissolved H2O and CO2 into the shallower mantle where they solidify, modifying the sources of later volcanic melts.
  Stability of minerals containing potassium and water in deeply subducted continents
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In large continental collision zones such as the Himalayas, continental crust may be pushed down to depths as great as 200–300km where the usual minerals of the continental crust are no longer stable.
