  Tomographic imaging for geophysics and medical physics
  Dr L Lok, Prof C Paoloni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tomography is an imaging modality that is widely exploited across the electromagnetic spectrum in diverse fields such as geophysics and biomedical engineering.
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the restoration of UK Carbon sinks using geophysics and microbiology
  Dr R Doherty, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Occupying just 3% of the Earth’s land surface, peatlands are our largest carbon store on land. Worldwide they store 550 gigatonnes of carbon, representing 42% of all soil carbon and exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the world’s forests.
  PhD in Engineering: Developing the next generation of gravity sensors for volcanic eruption forecasting
  Dr R Middlemiss
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project you will develop a new type of gravity sensor that will be used to help forecast volcanic eruptions. You will be involved in the design, fabrication, and field testing (at Mt Etna, Sicily) of this cutting-edge technology.
  QUADRAT DTP: Monitoring environmental change with ambient seismic noise
  Dr D Cornwell, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Measuring changes in large-scale natural phenomena in high resolution is difficult, particularly in remote or hazardous locations.
  Nonlinear acoustic-gravity wave theory
  Dr U Kadri
Applications accepted all year round

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.
  Monitoring and Modelling of Ground Vibration Activity from Onshore Wind Farms
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Prof C MacBeth, Prof O Laghrouche
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The influence of wind turbines on local seismic stations, sensitive seismological observatories and gravitational wave observatories is recognised to be of growing importance as these renewable energy sources are further developed and promoted worldwide.
  Fully funded PhD opportunity in Seismology which aims at characterizing the active tectonics along with the seismic and volcanic hazards in the Red Sea and western Saudi Arabia, with particular focus on the transform fault systems
  Dr L Parisi, Dr S Jonsson, Dr M Mai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a highly motivated PhD student to join our research teams in Computational Earthquake Seismology (CES) and Crustal Deformation and InSAR (CDI) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
  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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Basal meltwater channels on ice shelves (Ref: OP20299)
  Dr M Haseloff
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Increased melting due to warming ocean waters has been linked to ice shelf thinning and break-up, and subsequent speed up and retreat of adjoining ice sheets.
  ONE Planet DTP - Temporal oscillations of West Antarctic ice streams and implications for ice sheet deglaciation (Ref: OP20300)
  Dr M Haseloff
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. The West Antarctic ice sheet contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by several metres and is considered particularly vulnerable to changing climatic conditions.
  QUADRAT DTP: Source-to-sink dynamics and palaeo-environment reconstruction from a dynamically evolving glacial foreland
  Mr A Ruffell, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathways of glacial meltwater, from surface ablation through to proglacial discharge, are a key component in understanding the role of hydrology and its influence on glacier dynamics.
  Earthquake Forecasting Using Machine Learning and Statistics
  Dr G Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the occurrence time of individual earthquakes cannot be predicted exactly, statistical models are able to give relatively accurate forecasts for the long-term probability of large earthquakes occurring in particular geographic regions.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Field to Forest: Relict Field Systems in East Berkshire.
  Prof M Bell, Dr D Garrow
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flemming, 1987; Yates, 2007). The primary method for identifying these field systems has been aerial photography, which has identified extensive relict field systems on the Berkshire Downs (Ford, Bowden, Mees, & Gaffney, 1988; Levick, 2015; P.
  ONE Planet DTP - Causes of heavy precipitation in Europe (OP20286)
  Prof H Fowler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme rainfall events cause substantial damage to infrastructure and endanger people, while lack of rainfall affects agriculture and can deplete water resources.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
