PhD Type

 . 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.
  The origin of layering and platinum ores in the Flatreef of the Bushveld Complex: reactive porous flow in a sill complex?
  Prof W Maier, Dr S Tapster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The Flatreef is a world-class platinum-group element (PGE) deposit recently discovered down-dip from existing mining and exploration operations on the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex.
  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).
  Constraining mantle dynamics with seismic data
  Prof J H Davies, Dr J Wookey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains result from the dynamic Earth, driven by mantle convection. This fundamental process that underlies all these very important phenomena is very poorly understood.
  The Oxidation State of the Earth’s Mantle
  Dr D Muir, Dr C J Lissenberg, Prof J Blundy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The mantle acts as the tape recorder of Earth’s history, preserving a record of early continent formation and the subsequent plate tectonic recycling of crustal material.
