  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Craig Magee (Leeds), Dr William McCarthy (St Andrews), Dr Douglas Paton (Leeds). Overview. Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  Investigating subducting slabs in the Earth’s mantle transition zone with seismic data
  Dr A Nowacki, Dr A Walker, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tectonic oceanic plates are usually subducted beneath another plate and sink deep into the Earth, eventually being mixed back into the rest of the mantle.
  Layers? No Layers? Or both: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s magnetic field is essential for life on Earth and is produced in Earth’s outer core. Numerical models of the geodynamo show that a combination of chaotic convection of the liquid iron-nickel alloy and Earth’s rotation produces the flow structures essential for the geodynamo process.
  Seismicity, fault rheology, and fault evolution across Africa
  Dr T Craig, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the seismicity associated with the major tectonic regimes of Africa using a combination of earthquake seismology, satellite geodesy, and structural geology.
  Using high resolution SAR imagery for volcano monitoring in SE Asia
  Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Susanna Ebmeier (Leeds), Cosupervisors. Yosuke Aoki (University of Tokyo), Andy Hooper (Leeds).
  Bringing machine learning techniques to geophysical data processing
  Dr L Uieda, Dr S De Angelis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravity and magnetic surveys offer a cost-effective method for investigating sedimentary basins, mineral deposits, active tectonics in the oceans, and overall crustal structure.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Forecasting the future of Earth’s magnetic field using artificial intelligence
  Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life on the surface along with modern electrical infrastructure from harmful solar radiation.
  Constraining mantle dynamics with seismic data
  Prof J H Davies, Dr J Wookey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains result from the dynamic Earth, driven by mantle convection. This fundamental process that underlies all these very important phenomena is very poorly understood.
  Nonlinear acoustic-gravity wave theory
  Dr U Kadri
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the linear theory, gravity waves are virtually decoupled from acoustic (compression) waves, because the propagation speed of acoustic waves far exceeds the maximum phase speed of gravity waves.
  The effect of cyclic subsurface hydrogen storage on the mechanical and transport properties of reservoir rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr S den Hartog, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen storage is a promising technology to account for fluctuations, e.g. seasonal, in the global energy demand. However, little is known about the response of the reservoir rocks to the related fluctuations in pore fluid pressure and chemistry.
  Space weather at mid-latitudes: climatology, dynamics and drivers of atmospheric Joule heating
  Dr A Grocott, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth experiences ‘space weather’ that impacts the planetary environment in a variety of ways. These impacts are a recognised environmental hazard, as detailed in the UK National Risk Register.
  Archean tectono-magmatic evolution of the Yilgarn Craton, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD project integrating field-work, structural geology, petrology, geochronology and geophysics based at Monash University, Australia and in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Western Australia.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren, Prof J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  Deluge or drought? Climate change and South Asian Monsoon rainfall (WEBBERUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Prof M Joshi, Dr AG Turner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
