  Quaternary and methylated amine cycle in coastal oceans: new genes, novel microbes and unexpected pathways
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr K Purdy
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. New genes and novel microbes. Unexpected pathways. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
  Reconstructing lost worlds – Quaternary continental Ostracoda as tools in geoarchaeology
  Dr P Frenzel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ostracods are one of the main palaeontological proxies in Quaternary continental systems because of their ecological sensitiveness, wide distribution, often high abundance and high diversity.
  Landscape change in Northern Norway: impacts of climate, biotic interactions and anthropogenic disturbance
  Prof ME Edwards, Prof AG Brown
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Humans arrived early into arctic Fennoscandia, and their actions have subtly shaped the landscape for thousands of years. At the same time, climate variations and natural biotic processes (such as herbivory, competition, and soil development) have also driven change.
  The sedimentology associated with subglacial drainage pathways beneath a soft bedded glacier
  Prof JK Hart
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
One of the main drivers of glacier response to climate change is the rate at which surface water can reach the bed of the glacier.
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  The inner workings of the earthquake cycle: New insight from integrating geophysical observations and microstructures
  Dr L Gregory, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Slip behaviour at and around faults has been shown to be highly dynamic with variability in behaviour occurring both spatially and temporally.
  Miocene Evolution of the Asian Monsoon
  Dr A Boom, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project will reconstruct rainfall amounts by using state of the art proxies and will contribute to or understanding of the global climate system.
  Funded Geography PhD opportunities
For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  Neanderthal evolution in Pleistocene Gibraltar: reconstructing the environmental context
  Prof Ed Rhodes, Dr K Penkman
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The aim of this project is to unlock records of high magnitude rapid environmental change in the Gibraltar region using coupled amino acid racemization and luminescence dating of sediment archives, in order to better understand the context in which Neanderthal occupation and evolution took place.
  Pushing back the frontiers of luminescence dating – IAPETUS DTP PhD Studentship (Durham University and Glasgow University)
  Prof I Bailiff
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
University of Durham and the University of Glasgow. Luminescence - especially optically stimulated luminescence - dating is an established and important tool for dating events during the Late Pleistocene and latter part of the Middle Pleistocene.
