  Eruption source vents and subsidence patterns in exhumed caldera volcanoes, English Lake District (CENTA2-SGGE15-BRAN)
  Prof M J Branney, Dr J A Zalasiewicz, Dr T Barry
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How explosive caldera volcanoes erupt and collapse is essential to understand some of the most catastrophic events that affect the Earth’s surface.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  How ’orogenic’ is orogenic gold? Field-based study of the Scottish Grampian
  Dr T Torvela, Dr R Chapman, Dr D Morgan, Dr J Harvey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use a holistic approach, including a novel method of looking into gold particle characteristics, to distinguish between magmatic and orogenic (non-magmatic) sources for gold.
  Fractionation of iron-titanium oxide minerals in mafic-ultramafic magmatic systems: Case studies from Greenland and South Africa.PhD in Geology (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr J Andersen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Jens C. Andersen, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  Exploring combined geothermal power and mineral extraction potential of the Galway granite complex
  Dr D Mcnamara, Prof J Wheeler, Prof D Faulkner, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to carry out a detailed structural analysis of the fracture networks in and around the Galway granite, determine through flow modelling how it may operate as an enhanced geothermal system, and explore ore mineralisation related to hydrothermal flow within existing structural networks.
  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  For A Better Quality of Life in China: Planning Incentivisation in Housing Development
  Dr Y Xu, Dr O Sykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It becomes central to China's pursuit of quality development to re-emphasise functional instead of investment attributes of housing given problems related to housing over-speculation.
  ONE Planet DTP - Palaeoenvironmental investigation into the origin of the domesticated landscapes of southwestern Amazonia (Ref: OP202026)
  Dr B Whitney
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contrary to popular conceptions, the Amazon was not a pristine landscape prior to European arrival, but contained large human populations that created complex landscape management systems for the production of food and industrial crops.
  Testing the links between magmatic, tectonic and climate controls on hydrothermal activity at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr B Murton, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. High temperature hydrothermal activity at mid-ocean ridges is driven mainly by magmatic heat and crystallization and responds to structural processes that open-up and maintain fluid pathways from the interior of the ocean crust to the seafloor.
