  Instrumentation for Mars Sample Return
  Research Group: Planetary Science
  Prof J Bridges
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mars Sample Return MSR has the aim of bringing back cored samples of different rock types to Earth’s laboratories to make detailed analyses, including searching for traces of ancient life.

  (STFC DTP) Sources and processing of volatiles in the highlands lunar regolith
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. Apollo 16, the fifth of six manned missions that landed on the Moon (8.59°S, 15.30°E), returned rocks and soils from the central nearside Descartes Mountains and Cayley Plains Formations.
  (STFC DTP) Combining neutron diffraction experiments and microstructural analyses to investigate the fracturing of pyroxenes
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
The link between aqueous fluids and potential habitability means that assessing the distribution of liquid water at or near the surface of Mars throughout its history remains a strong focus of missions to Mars.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences: Antarctic glaciers and rock weathering: Using meteorites to explore ice sheet dynamics and climate change
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis
Applications accepted all year round
Antarctica is our most important source of meteorites. These extraterrestrial rocks have accumulated within glaciers over millions of years, and have been recovered in large numbers from ‘blue ice fields’, which are regions where meteorites are concentrated by the ablation of glacial ice.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the water and volatile inventory of unequilibrated ordinary chrondrites
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Introduction. One of the vital ingredients that allowed the emergence of life on the Earth is liquid water. Therefore,understanding the origin(s) of Solar System water, together with other volatile species, is of primaryimportance for the study of life in the universe.
  PhD Geographical and Earth Sciences: Meteorite bombardment of Earth at the Triassic/Jurassic boundary
  Prof M Lee
Applications accepted all year round
The history of Earth has been punctuated by a series of highly energetic impact events, some of which have significantly affected the terrestrial biosphere.
  Source to Sea: Soil carbon transport from forested environments to coastal waters (Ref IAP2-18-72)
  Dr C Schroeder, Dr W Austin, Dr C Smeaton, Dr N Shah
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Scotland is a carbon (C) nation with significant stores held in both terrestrial and marine environments. Scotland’s peatlands, for example, hold Europe’s largest organic carbon (OC) reserves, and recent research has shown that Scotland’s sea lochs are even more effective carbon stores [1,2].
  PhD Geographical and Earth Sciences: Meteorites from the Australian outback: A new terrestrial climate proxy?
  Prof M Lee, Dr L Daly
Applications accepted all year round
The goal of this project is to test the novel idea that meteorites can provide a detailed record of changes in the Earth’s climate.
  Probing the molecular composition of planet-forming regions with ALMA
  Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is a state-of-the-art telescope in Chile. It has the resolution and sensitivity to observe emission from dust and gas on size scales similar to that of the Solar System in nearby young exoplanet-forming systems.
