  Experimental melting of hydrous pyroxenite: reactions between crust and mantle in subduction zones
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrous pyroxenite is believed to be a common reaction product produced by the interaction of subducted materials with peridotite in the mantle wedge above subducting slabs.
  Experimental melting of the Earth’s mantle in reduced conditions
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Melting of mantle peridotite has been thoroughly studied with high-pressure experiments with and without the volatile components H2O and CO2.
  The petrological and geochemical behaviour of nitrogen during subduction
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although nitrogen is well known as the most abundant gas species in the atmosphere, more than half the Earth’s nitrogen is sequestered in the solid Earth.
  The potential of olivine and spinel as indicators of magma source regions
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Minor and trace elements in olivine phenocrysts have been used recently as tracers to identify the mineral assemblages present in source regions of the magmas.
  Transport of elements in the deep continental crust
  Prof S Foley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of trace element distribution between minerals, fluids and melts at depths of 20-50km in the Earth.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.

  Trace element and isotopic signal in hominid teeth in the Pleistocene
  Dr R Joannes-Boyau
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In teeth, mineralisation of enamel and dentine occurs incrementally and thus retains a sequential record of an individual’s early-life chemical exposure - both external and internal (e.g., metabolites).
