  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.
  (STFC DTP) Combining neutron diffraction experiments and microstructural analyses to investigate the fracturing of pyroxenes
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The link between aqueous fluids and potential habitability means that assessing the distribution of liquid water at or near the surface of Mars throughout its history remains a strong focus of missions to Mars.
  Landslide nowcasting using advanced data analytics
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast proliferation of new satellite, aerial and terrestrial remote sensing techniques has provided new technological and scientific opportunities to investigate geohazards during the last decade.
  Developing a constitutive model for rock fracture under hydraulic fatigue loading through XCT experiments.
  Dr S Yang
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fracturing of rocks is an important part of several geological engineering applications geothermal energy, unconventional hydrocarbons, water resources).
  ONE Planet DTP - Antarchitecture: constraining East Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics with radar-derived englacial stratigraphy and structure (OP202028)
  Dr N Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Antarctic ice sheet contains a significant potential contribution to future global sea level rise. Satellite-observations of ice sheet change, numerical modelling and geological evidence demonstrates that several parts of the ice sheet could undergo unstable collapse, unlocking this sea level potential.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  (STFC DTP) The atmospheric evolution of Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Prof R Burgess, Dr L Ruzie, Dr G Holland, Prof J Gilmour
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mars atmospheric evolution was marked by an early, dense CO2-rich atmosphere giving sufficient greenhouse warming to enable liquid water at the surface; followed by atmospheric loss leaving a less dense atmosphere with cold, arid surface conditions.
  (STFC DTP) The Halogen Budget of Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Dr P Clay, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asteroid 4 Vesta is the second largest body in the Asteroid Belt, second to the dwarf planet Ceres. Unlike most asteroids, but similar to Earth, Vesta is differentiated into a silicate crust, mantle and core.
  (STFC DTP) Xenon isotopes and the chronology of the solar system
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Prof J Gilmour, Dr G Holland, Dr P Clay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Xenon isotopic signatures in extraterrestrial material that dates back to the early solar system record radioactive decay of now-extinct radioisotopes (244Pu and 129I), affording a means of dating processes that occurred as they formed or as they were processed on planetesimals.
  Testing compositional-frequency-climate linkages across the caldera cycle: a case study from Campi Flegrei
  Dr E Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many volcanic systems exhibit remarkable cyclic behaviour, starting with eruptions of less evolved magma and transitioning to infrequent eruptions of more evolved magma before culminating in cataclysmic eruption.
