  Exploring the influence of trans-crustal magmatic systems on volcano deformation, Geology – PhD (Funded)
  Dr j Hickey, Dr B Williamson
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Dr James Hickey, University of Exeter. Professor Ben Williamson, University of Exeter. Professor Kathy Cashman, University of Bristol.
  The dynamics of magma storage and ascent beneath an active arc volcano (Villarrica, Chile)
  Dr D Ferguson, Dr D Morgan, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Volcanic arcs, formed along convergent plate margins, produce most of Earth’s subaerial volcanic activity and are responsible for the largest and most devastating historical eruptions.
  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).
  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  Holistic assessment of the impacts of an enhanced stratospheric aerosol layer
  Dr G Mann, Prof M P Chipperfield, Dr A Rap
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions can inject vast quantities of sulphur dioxide and ash into the upper atmosphere, which cools the Earth’s surface by scattering incoming solar radiation back to space.
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
  Monitoring magma rheology-seismicity feedbacks during volcanic eruptions
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Dr S De Angelis, Dr P Papale
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions are associated with a range of geophysical signals, including ground deformation and seismicity (Bean et al., 2014; Chouet and Matoza, 2013; Gottsmann et al., 2011).
  The evolution of volcanism following sector collapse
  Dr S Watt, Prof T J Reston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Sector collapses are among the largest volume events to affect volcanic systems, potentially involving the rapid displacement of tens of cubic kilometres of rock.
  Intraplate magmatism generation – A role for volatiles and heterogeneous lithospheric structure?
  Dr L L Kirstein, Prof J G Fitton
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Understanding the causes of intraplate magmatism remains an outstanding conundrum for Earth Scientists. The role of volatile enrichment and lithospheric heterogeneity in focusing intraplate magmatic activity will be investigated.
  Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes
  Dr S Ebmeier, Dr D Ferguson, Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
