  (STFC DTP) Planetary Impact Distributions
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr K Joy, Dr G Evatt, Dr A Smedley, Prof D Abrahams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the Earth have a uniform impact rate of extraterrestrial material? If not, then why? Going further, how do the causes of Earth’s rate vary from planet to planet and moon to moon? Or indeed, can observations of impact cratering tell us about historical information about the orbits of the planet/moons? These seem quite fundamental questions, but answering them has proven much harder.
  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) Isotopic tracers of geological processing in the lunar regolith
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr K Joy, Dr J Pernet-Fisher, Prof J Gilmour
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) Using minerals analogues to understand effects of sterilisation procedures and applications for Mars Sample Return
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr K Joy, Dr S Nixon, Prof M Patel, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future missions aim to collect samples from a range of planetary bodies. NASA and ESA are working on plans for a series of Mars missions to collect, transport and return rocks and soil samples to the Earth.
  (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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Northwest Africa (NWA) 7034 and paired stones are unique martian meteorites that provide us with our first and only samples of the martian surface regolith (Agee et al.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Dynamics of the Antarctic Atmosphere – From the Surface to the Edge of Space
  Prof N J Mitchell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  (STFC DTP) The atmospheric evolution of Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Prof R Burgess, Dr L Ruzie, Dr G Holland, Prof J Gilmour
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mars atmospheric evolution was marked by an early, dense CO2-rich atmosphere giving sufficient greenhouse warming to enable liquid water at the surface; followed by atmospheric loss leaving a less dense atmosphere with cold, arid surface conditions.
  Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler, Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG), Global Sustainability Institute (GSI). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Temporal variability of the carbon system across the Atlantic Ocean; causes and implications
  Dr S Hartman, Dr R James, Dr P Brown, Dr A Schaap
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 25% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by fossil fuel combustion enters the ocean. Without this sink, the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere would be larger than it is.
  The death of oceanic mesoscale energy at western boundaries of ocean basins
  Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr G Evans, Dr L Clement
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mesoscale eddies – swirling vortices of water 100-200 km across—are highly energetic and ubiquitous in the world’s oceans, acting to redistribute energy and properties and potentially modulating the strength of the large-scale ocean circulation.
