  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  Biomolecular taphonomy: the use of biomolecules to estimate post-mortem interval for forensic applications (RDF19/HLS/AS/PROCOPIO)
  Dr N Procopio
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The estimation of the time since death (or post-mortem interval, PMI) is one of the most debated topics in forensic anthropology and, despite the great number of studies conducted on this subject, it still suffers from poor precision and reliability, in particular in cases of advanced decay and/or dry remains.
  (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.
