  Past and future ocean productivity: Using ancient extinction crises to inform how we respond to today’s threats
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World’s ocean ecosystems may change fundamentally in the next few centuries due to the severe threats posed by present-day human activities which together are changing natural systems like never before.
  Before the Inner Core? Palaeomagnetic field intensity measurements from Proterozoic-aged Scandinavian igneous and baked Rocks
  Prof A Biggin, Dr G Paterson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is measure the strength of Earth’s magnetic field between approx. 1000-2500 million years ago and thereby test the published hypothesis that the Earth’s solid inner core first formed during this time.
  The earliest Lower Palaeolithic of the Middle Thames: Re-assessing the chronology and distribution of the high-level ancient river terraces
  Dr R Hosfield, Dr S Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of Britain’s earliest Palaeolithic sites are associated with estuaries and/or the lower reaches of major rivers. This distribution of sites suggests that the earliest colonisers may have been restricted to coastal habitats, with their milder micro-climates and distinctive resources.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Volcanological and petrogenetic research in the various eroded volcanic centres of the North Atlantic Palaeogene Igneous Province (NAPIP) have greatly informed our understanding of processes in both caldera volcanoes and flood basalt magmatism (e.g., Gooday et al., 2018).
  Depositional architecture and deformation of an active interbasinal relay zone: Corinth Isthmus, Greece
  Dr R Collier, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Relay zones in active rifts are areas where strain is distributed between overlapping normal faults. At the scale of the major basin-bounding faults, interbasinal relay zones (or accommodation zones) separate depocentres along the rift axis.
  Unravelling the mysteries of plate tectonics
  Dr M Maffione, Dr A R Hastie
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plate tectonics is the most unifying and revolutionary theory in Earth sciences. However, 50 years after its formulation fundamental questions about how plate tectonics works still remain unanswered.
  A hidden record of early animal evolution? Exploring the Cambrian diversity of acritarchs and small carbonaceous fossils (CENTA2-SGGE19-HARV2)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr B Pedder, Dr S Jensen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microfossils offer a rich record of early animal evolution and the attendant reconfiguring of ecosystems.
  The early Palaeozoic evolution of Vietnam (CENTA2-SGGE18-HARV1)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr J A Zalasiewicz
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project follows in the footsteps of the French Indochinese Geological Survey, who in the first decades of the 20th century discovered many new Palaeozoic fossils in northern Vietnam and southern China.
  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.
