(STFC) BUILDING ROCKY PLANETS – CONSTRAINING MAGMA OCEAN BEHAVIOUR WITH EXPERIMENTAL PETROLOGY

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
This project will investigate the evolution of rocky planets, with a particular focus on investigating how evolving magma oceans produce the source regions from which different suites of planetary rock samples are ultimately derived. Read more

Linking exoplanet detection to formation: population synthesis

The possibility of planets orbiting other stars has been a topic of fascination for centuries. We are the first generation that has brought these planets – now known as exoplanets – from the realm of science-fiction into that of science. Read more

(STFC) HISTORY OF THE LUNAR SURFACE

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. The Moon’s surface has been shaped by multiple impacts and so records the impact history of the inner solar system. Read more

Co-crystal Minerals on Titan: Structure, Spectroscopy, and Photochemistry.

Opportunities are available for international or New Zealand candidates to perform laboratory-based research in the Ennis Lab toward the characterization and chemistry of co-crystal minerals located on Saturn’s moon Titan. Read more

(STFC) BIOAVAILABILITY OF ORGANICS FOR LIFE IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM

  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
Project overview. Our understanding of planetary habitability is necessarily limited to our knowledge of life on Earth. A fundamental and as yet underexplored component of habitability is the availability of organic chemical energy for growth. Read more
