  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 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.

  Nature of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in Tibet, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be carried out in collaboration with the China University of Geosciences – Beijing focusing on structural geology, geochronology, igneous petrology and tectonics of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in order to better understand the evolution of the Tibetan Plateau.
  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).

  Image classification based disease and pest detection in agriculture
  Dr S Chakraborty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing image clarification models using tools such as Google Tensorflow. The models need to be capable of identifying different diseases and insect infestations in specific crops such as cotton.
  Controls on tidewater glacier retreat in Alaska
  Prof T Barrows
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level rose by 0.19 m over the last century (1901-2010) and glaciers accounted for 90% of sea level rise from melting of the cryosphere from 1971-2010.
  Identifying Drivers and Mechanisms of Cliimate-Related Tree Mortality
  Dr B Smith
Application Deadline: 7 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tree mortality is of high concern globally, and may be exacerbated by an increasing frequency and intensity of meteorological extremes such as droughts and heat waves.
  Improved Modelling of Plant Competition through Traits
  Dr B Smith
Application Deadline: 7 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Competition between individuals and species of plants growing together in local stands is fundamental to the structural and compositional dynamics of vegetation, with critical effects on ecosystem function.
