  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
  Tectonomagmatic formation of Earth’s first continents, the Slaufrudalur Pluton, SE Iceland
  Dr A R Hastie, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve.
  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.
  Quantifying the contribution of enhanced carbonate weathering to Earth system resilience. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof T Lenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Tim Lenton, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Investigating subducting slabs in the Earth’s mantle transition zone with seismic data
  Dr A Nowacki, Dr A Walker, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Discover the secrets that tectonic slabs take with them as they plunge into the Earth, using big data sets of seismic recordings.
  Proglacial landscape evolution across the Antarctic Peninsula with Holocene climate change
  Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ice sheet margin around the Antarctic Peninsula receded rapidly from its Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) position on the continental shelf edge ~ 18 ka (Davies et al., 2012) to a position towards the head of fjords, and in some cases onto land.
  Pteraichnites’ and their implications for pterosaur terrestrial palaeoecology and evolution (CENTA2-SGEE8-UNWI)
  Dr D Unwin, Prof M A Purnell, Dr R Butler, Dr PL Falkingham
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pterosaurs, Mesozoic flying reptiles, were long considered to have been almost exclusively confined to aerial niches, with only limited mobility when on the ground (Unwin, 2005).
  Fault systems and fluid-rock interactions in the oceanic lithosphere: Implications for carbon capture
  Dr E Mariani, Dr P Gonzales, Prof J Wheeler, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to unravel the controls of hydrothermal fault activity on fluid pathways in the oceanic lithosphere and on the timing, rate and distribution of serpentinisation and carbonation reactions in mantle rocks.
  Magma Ascent Down Under: Magma Flow in Basaltic Fissure Systems
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr E Mariani, Dr T Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this study is to improve volcanic hazard assessment models by developing new methodologies in scaled laboratory experiments to inform the interpretation of field, geophysical and geodetic observations of basaltic fissure eruptions.
  Volcanic plumbing system dynamics and their impact on communities living near active volcanoes
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr H Sangster
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop a coupled physical and social volcanology model to inform and impact volcanic hazard assessment and management.
