  Constraining mantle dynamics with seismic data
  Prof J H Davies, Dr J Wookey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. Dynamics, Mantle, Convection, Circulation, Seismology, Mineralogy. Project Background. Earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains result from the dynamic Earth, driven by mantle convection.
  The application of Eurocode 8 Part1 around the world
  Prof C Georgopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method.
  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  Onshore/Offshore Seismic Imaging of the New Zealand Subduction Zone
  Dr N Harmon, Prof L McNeill, Dr C Rychert
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The behaviours and processes that occur at subduction zones inform our global understanding of plate boundary interaction at a variety of scales with broad implications for plate tectonics, volatiles cycling, seismic hazard and climate.
  The deep roots and internal structure of active and extinct seafloor massive sulphide deposits
  Dr G Bayrakci, Prof T Minshull, Dr B Murton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrothermal polymetallic seafloor massive sulphide (SMS) deposits form when seawater circulates within oceanic rocks driven by heat from below.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Re-evaluation of the Volcanic, Sedimentological and Structural nature of the Scott/Telford Fields within the Central North Sea:A route to extended field life?
  Dr N Schofield, Prof D Jolley, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The North Sea has provided a highly important resource to the UK and its economy for over the last 50 years. With the basin in overall production decline, it is important to examine ways of prolonging and extended the life of this now mature basin.
  A new monitoring tool for Coastal Landslide Observatories (JOHNSONUENV20ARIES)
  Dr J Johnson, Prof R. Nicholls
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the face of climate change, our coasts are becoming increasingly vulnerable due to more extreme weather events as well as sea-level rise.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Mathematical and statistical analysis of time series data to quantify trends and events in ocean noise
  Dr M Nunes
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the University of Bath is offering a PhD studentship in the field of mathematical and statistical analysis of time series data obtained from deep-ocean noise measurements.
