  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At present, future GrIS changes (e.g. estimates of sea level contribution which feature in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - IPCC - assessment reports) are predicted using ice sheet models which do not fully account for the feedback processes outlined above.
  Fully funded PhD Scholarships in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD Scholarship Opportunities, Potential immediate start. School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. Scholarship opportunity's with immediate or early 2019 start for applicants with exceptional tertiary qualifications.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: Experimental constraints on the magnitude of stable isotope fractionation during the development of banded iron formations.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: New insights by applying a coupled stable isotope approach in banded iron formations
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Understanding the evolution of Archean mafic rocks: Amphibolite inclusions as a window to understanding the past.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Using the composition of tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite magmas from the Pilbara and Yilgarn cratons to understand early crustal growth.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The granitoids of the Pilbara and Yilgarn cratons of Western Australia include the tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite suite, sanukitoids and potassic granites and provide a record of development of the Earth’s continental lithosphere during the Archean.
  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 - The rocky road to recovery – The role of microbialites in coral reef recovery after abrupt environmental change (OP20321)
  Dr C van der Land
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reef microbialites are excellent recorders of past sea-level and water chemistry, especially during times of environmental stress when skeletal corals (normal reef builders) are less likely to survive.
  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.
  ONE Planet DTP - Glaciers and ice sheets: pressurized nutrient bioreactors for the oceans (OP202061)
  Dr J Telling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subglacial water outflowing from under glaciers and ice sheets can be an important source of otherwise limiting nutrients such as P, Si and Fe for supporting productivity and CO2 drawdown in marine ecosystems (Death et al., 2014 Biogeosciences, 11, 2635-2643).
  ONE Planet DTP - : Qualitifying stocks and fluxes of organic carbon in the Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth and the threats posed by climatic change. (Ref: OP20235)
  Dr M Deary
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Atlantic saltmarshes of the Solway Firth represent nearly 25% of the UK total. These wetlands support internationally important biodiversity yet are highly vulnerable to coastal squeeze; eroded by the sea and reclaimed for our use inland.
  ONE Planet DTP - : Wide scale monitoring of permafrost coast erosion (Ref: OP20241)
  Dr M Lim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climatic changes have been particularly pronounced across Arctic coastlines, reducing the sea-ice season and intensifying storm activity.
  ONE Planet DTP - Climate of the past interglacials in Central Europe (Ref: OP202011)
  Dr V Ersek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Speleothems such as stalagmites and flowstones are terrestrial environmental archives that can be dated precisely and accurately using uranium series techniques, and can be analysed at very high temporal resolution.
  ONE Planet DTP - Coastal geohazard analyses and decision making tools for asset management (Ref: OP20240)
  Dr M Lim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant investment (~£50m in the UK) is made into mitigating the risks posed by coastal geohazards to buildings, infrastructure, utilities and ecosystems.
  ONE Planet DTP - Exploring human-climate interactions in the wider Caucasus region during the Mid-to-Late Holocene (Ref: OP202010)
  Dr V Ersek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Caucasus Mountains and neighbouring Anatolia are thought to be one of the key localities in the development of modern human societies.
