  How and why is deformation localised in continental crust?
  Dr S Piazolo, Prof T Wright, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will collect and use geological field investigations of the exhumed lower crust to constrain models of strain localisation, and compare these against modern geodetic data from the India-Asia collision.
  The inner workings of the earthquake cycle: New insight from integrating geophysical observations and microstructures
  Dr L Gregory, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slip behaviour at and around faults has been shown to be highly dynamic with variability in behaviour occurring both spatially and temporally.
  QUADRAT DTP: Trace element behaviour in surface environments on enriched shales, Britain and Ireland
  Prof J Parnell, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical aspect of environmental studies is the understanding of how trace elements are distributed in surface deposits where they can cause toxicity in the water supply, animals and foodstuffs.
  Tracking radionuclide pollution
  Dr M Andersen, Dr D Richards
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Pollution by anthropogenic radionuclides is ubiquitous in the environment. In particular, Wales and the southwest of England have experienced the legacy of the atomic age from the spread of toxic radionuclides from a range of now-decommissioned nuclear power plants (e.g.
  Incorporation of contaminant metals into waste derived nanoparticles
  Dr I Burke, Dr A P Brown
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction and rationale. The production and refinement of metals ores produces a multitude of heterogeneous wastes (e.g. during steel manufacturing, aluminium extraction and chromium ore processing).
  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
  Assessing the effects of microplastics on marine benthic communities
  Dr D Mayor, Dr J Godbold, Dr B Thornton, Dr A Horton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Continental shelf sediments are biogeochemical hotspots. Interactions between benthic invertebrates and bacteria drive the remineralization of organic matter, returning inorganic nutrients to the overlying waters and stimulating primary production.
  Catastrophic change to Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr C Xuan, Prof P Wilson, Dr G Hellio
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
  QUADRAT DTP: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  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.
  Earth and Environmental Materials at Extreme Conditions: Recycling Light Elements through Earth
  Prof S Redfern
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to start August 2020 to work with Simon Redfern on the mechanisms of light element incorporation into the minerals that make up Earth’s interior and other related materials.
  ONE Planet DTP - Evaluating time-varying hazard and risk from proglacial lakes in Lunana, Bhutan. (OP20288)
  Dr R Carr
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bhutan is highly vulnerable to Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs), as hydroelectric power (HEP) supplies ~100% of its power and accounts ~60% of its GDP.
  Weathering of Clays under Extreme Conditions: Implications for the Biosphere and Extraterrestrial Environments
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining molecular modeling and experiments to build an understanding of weathering of minerals on ancient Earth and extraterrestrial environments, and its effect on the evolution of carbon-cycles and habitability of planets.
  Modelling the Cambrian Explosion
  Dr R Wood, Dr A Curtis
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. We propose to model the depositional and diagenetic contributions to poorly understood geochemical proxies that are of importance to understanding the ‘Cambrian Explosion’ and modernisation of Earth’s biogeochemical cycles.
