  (MERI) 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.
  Constraining the petrogenesis and timing of the youngest magmatic events in the British Palaeogene Igneous Province
  Dr A Kerr
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Modern geochemical techniques have greatly increased our understanding of the timing of the magmatism and nature of the mantle source region(s) during the earliest magmatic expressions of the Iceland plume, ca.
  Olivine, magma and fluids: exploring the origin(s) of platinum-group element mineralization in the Main Zone of northern Bushveld Complex of South Africa.
  Dr I McDonald, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Long considered barren of metalliferous ore deposits, the gabbronorite dominated Main Zone of the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex of South Africa is now established as a new frontier for Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization [1].
  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 C J Lissenberg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  The true heterogeneity of the depleted mantle revealed by crystal-scale analyses in the lower oceanic crust
  Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Earth’s mantle is heterogeneous as a result of early planetary differentiation and subsequent crustal recycling during plate tectonics.
  Impact of sand dams on local aquifers in Kenya
  Dr A Parker, Mr P Hutchings
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  Tectonomagmatic formation of Earth’s first continents, the Slaufrudalur Pluton, SE Iceland
  Dr A R Hastie, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve.
  The Stratigraphy and Emplacement of the Antrim Lavas (SEAL)
  Dr C T Stevenson, Dr S Watt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018).
  Unravelling the process of subduction initiation: style, mechanism, and timing
  Dr M Maffione, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Subduction is a key step in the solid Earth cycle that allows tectonic plates to move.
  Examining the erratic record of Scotland’s glacially and fluvially modified landscape
  Dr L L Kirstein, Dr R Walcott, Prof S Mudd, Dr A Hein
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. Scotland’s land surface is the product of plate tectonics modified by surface processes and extensively reconfigured by glacial erosion.
