  Change lives and shape futures with a funded PhD in Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences
Join a research community that transcends disciplinary boundaries to tackle the biggest challenges facing humanity. United, we're tackling global challenges such as environmental sustainability, climate change, business innovation, social justice, poverty and conflict response.
  (MERI) Can stratigraphic sequences at all scales be explained by autogenic processes?Applying theory to a real world deltaic succession from the Pyrenean Foreland, Spain.
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Jerrett, Dr R Duller
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
In sequence stratigraphy, the interpretation of organisation or patterns in stratigraphic successions relies heavily on the assumption that allogenic mechanisms (e.g.
  (MERI) Cascading effects of fisheries policy through seabird communities and the terrestrial environment (Supervisors: Prof D Johnson, Prof L Gilbert and Dr M Spencer)
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Changes in coastal management, such as fisheries, may alter terrestrial processes through biological vectors, such as inland-nesting seabirds and waders that transfer coastal-derived nutrients.
  (MERI) Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
  (MERI) Environmentally-dependent mutation rates across evolutionary scales
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Dr D Gifford, Dr R Krašovec
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
How natural selection depends on the environment has long been studied, but evolution relies on other mechanisms too. In particular, evolution depends on mutations.
  (MERI) Extreme Convective Storms
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  (MERI) Investigating the presence of a recycled component in the Azores mantle source
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof R Burgess, Dr G Holland
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The Azores archipelago is considered unusual as an example of oceanic intraplate volcanism for a variety of reasons1,2. One is the extreme range in trace element and radiogenic isotope (Sr-Nd-Pb-Hf) signatures that its basalt products exhibit.
  (MERI) Irrigation poverty traps in the Eastern Gangetic Plains
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Foster, Prof D Polya
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Agriculture is central to the livelihoods of millions of rural households across South Asia. For the majority of smallholder farmers in this region, the dominant source of irrigation water supply is groundwater.
  (MERI) Is regional metamorphism the cumulative result of many short ‘hot’ events each induced by a mobile hydrofracture passing by?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
A hot topic of current research concerns the timescales of regional metamorphism – do regional metamorphic facies record a sustained period of elevated…
  (MERI) Magama chambers or mush?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr J Mecklenburgh, Prof E Rutter, Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof M Burton
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The classical view of large volume magma chambers containing close to 100% melt below volcanoes has been the paradigm for over a century.
