  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  (STFC DTP) Xenon isotopes and the chronology of the solar system
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science

Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Xenon isotopic signatures in extraterrestrial material that dates back to the early solar system record radioactive decay of now-extinct radioisotopes (244Pu and 129I), affording a means of dating processes that occurred as they formed or as they were processed on planetesimals.
  Volcanic seismicity and eruption forecasting at the basaltic caldera volcanoes of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
  Dr A Bell, Prof I Main
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will undertake the first systematic study of seismicity of the basaltic volcanoes of the Galapagos Islands, providing new insights into their behaviour, and methods for forecasting future eruptions.
  Deconstructing the Falkland sediment drift – Implications for Patagonian Ice Sheet and Antarctic Circumpolar Current evolution during the Plio-Pleistocene. PhD in Geology (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020
