  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  PhD studentship – Climate change impacts on infrastructure earthworks
  Mr B Young
Application Deadline: 29 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. ABCE19/Achilles. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2019. Closing date of advert. 29 May 2019. Interview date.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: How is atmospheric CO2 captured by steel slag
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the crystallinity and crystallography of calcite which has precipitated during sequestration of atmospheric CO2 by steel slag.

  Prof T Barrows
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level rose by 0.19 m over the last century (1901-2010) and glaciers accounted for 90% of sea level rise from melting of the cryosphere from 1971-2010.
