  (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.
  (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.
  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.
  (MERI) The geochemistry of chert fossils in deep time
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Tartese, Prof R Wogelius, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Chert is a key lithology for the preservation of Precambrian life. These rocks, which are composed primarily of microcrystalline silica, host a myriad of important remains of early life.
  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.
