 . We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2020 covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  Novel window into old crust: How did Earth’s continents form?
  Dr M A Millet, Dr O Nebel, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The formation of Earth’s continents during the Archean eon is one of the major transformation that our planet has experienced throughout its history.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr N Santodomingo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass, Dr S Gregory
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The disposal of radioactive waste in geological disposal facilities (GDF) deep underground is being planned by several countries including the UK.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  Reconstructing the plumbing systems of mid-ocean ridge volcanoes: olivine vs plagioclase-hosted melt inclusions
  Dr C J Lissenberg, Prof K Cashman, Prof C MacLeod
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Interconnected magma reservoirs are the key driver of the dynamics of volcanic systems around the world. Understanding their nature, therefore, is an important step towards understanding how volcanoes are supplied with magma, and, ultimately, how they erupt.
  Pliocene sea level constraints for future sea level rise
  Dr C H Lear, Dr E Gasson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keyword. Climate Science. Project Background. Retreat of the Antarctic Ice Sheet due to polar warming remains the largest source of uncertainty for future sea level projections, hampering planning efforts and mitigation of sea level rise.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Volcanological and petrogenetic research in the various eroded volcanic centres of the North Atlantic Palaeogene Igneous Province (NAPIP) have greatly informed our understanding of processes in both caldera volcanoes and flood basalt magmatism (e.g., Gooday et al., 2018).
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  The influence of biogeochemistry and microbiology on Antarctic ice shelves
  Dr E Bagshaw, Dr A Jungblut, Prof I Hawes, Prof J L Wadham
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Predicting the future behaviour of ice shelves is critical for understanding how Antarctica will respond to climate warming.
