  The planetary graveyard - searching for the remnants of exoplanet systems around dead stars
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr M Burleigh, Dr S Casewell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
There is growing evidence that planetary systems are ubiquitous throughout the galaxy. Ground and spaced based surveys have found thousands of planets around stars.
  (STFC DTP) Volatile processing during planetary differentiation: insights from Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll
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.
  Exploring the general principles governing the circulation of planetary atmospheres, focusing on terrestrial planets
  Prof G Vallis, Prof J Thuburn
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in their intensity and spatio-temporal properties. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  (STFC DTP) Analysis and modelling of planetary atmospheres
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr G Allen
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
This exciting PhD project will bring together an interdisciplinary supervisory team to investigate weather and climate on other planets within our solar system.
  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.
  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.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
