  Deep, dark and dynamic: Converted-wave seismology to explore the physical properties of Antarctic glacier ice
  Dr A Booth, Dr R Clark
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Could you be converted to glacier seismology?! Join our group at Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment, collaborating with the British Antarctic Survey, to apply seismic methods - from field survey through to interpretation - to some of the most pressing issues in glaciology today! Full project description here.
  Assessing the value of data for engineering seismology
  Dr J Douglas
Applications accepted all year round
The shaking that occurs in the epicentral region of large earthquakes can be highly destructive to civil engineering infrastructure.
  Using Volcano Seismology to Study the New Zealand Supervolcano System
  Prof M Savage, Prof C Wilson, Dr F Illsley-Kemp
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
PhD students are sought to join the multi-institution ECLIPSE Supervolcano programme hosted at the School of Geography, Environment, and Earth Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington (VUW; http://www.victoria.ac.nz/sgees).
  Stratified or not-stratified or somewhere in between: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s outer core, the source of Earth’s magnetic field, is considered to be well mixed due to the fast convection (with velocities on the order of 10s km/yr) and the low viscosity of the liquid iron-nickel alloy.
  Imaging the lithosphere of the British Isles using Virtual Deep Seismic Sounding
  Dr D Thompson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Mohorovicic discontinuity, or Moho, is one of the most important boundaries within the Earth and is located at the transition from the crust to the underlying mantle.
  Forecasting the spatio-temporal evolution of natural hazards
  Dr M Naylor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. You will develop a new Bayesian framework for forecasting the occurrence and evolution of natural hazards by. adapting a cutting-edge spatio-temporal modelling package, originally developed for ecological systems.
  Seismic monitoring of bedload transport in mountain rivers
  Dr M Naylor, Dr H Sinclair, Dr M Attal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. You will develop and utilise a seismic monitoring system to monitor the mobilisation and transport of bedload in mountain rivers to understand impacts on flood hazard and fluvial erosion rates.
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction
  Dr A Nowacki, Prof D Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our society depends on the safe extraction of energy from a mixture of natural resources, including heat from the ground in geothermal power production, and the exploitation of hydrocarbons.

  Seismicity and Structure of Subducting Slabs
  Dr T Craig, Dr S Rost
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the distribution of seismicity associated with internal deformation in shallow subducting slabs. Subduction zones are well known to host the largest and most damaging earthquakes, but also a wide variety of smaller events.
