  (STFC DTP) Halogen behaviour during shock metamorphism and alteration on Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Dr P Clay, Prof J Day, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The heavy halogens (Cl, Br and I) are incompatible and fluid-mobile, making them excellent tracers of volatile evolution and transport processes on planetary bodies.
  (STFC DTP) Isotopic tracers of geological processing in the lunar regolith
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr K Joy, Dr M Nottingham
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The European Space Agency is sending an experiment package called PROSPECT to the Moon on the Luna 27 mission. The mission will analyse soils and determine the abundance and isotopic composition of light elements and noble gases.
  (STFC DTP) The Halogen Budget of Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Dr P Clay, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asteroid 4 Vesta is the second largest body in the Asteroid Belt, second to the dwarf planet Ceres. Unlike most asteroids, but similar to Earth, Vesta is differentiated into a silicate crust, mantle and core.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the organic record of early Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Garwood, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

  Thinking of doing a PhD? Become a Postgraduate Researcher at Birkbeck, University of London

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research with impact. Birkbeck is a research-intensive university based in central London. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) Birkbeck was ranked 30th nationally for research excellence and intensity with 73% of our research rated 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
  (STFC DTP) Magma storage and crystallization in rocky planets: Magma chambers on the Moon?
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr M Hartley, Dr D Neave, Dr K Joy, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Moon records volcanism on a small rocky planet. Lunar lavas were dominantly erupted between ~4.35 and 3 billion years ago. These lavas were sourced by partial melting of different regions of the lunar mantle, giving rise to a range of chemical affiliations and crystallization histories.
