  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
  Forams in the laser sights – getting the most out of laser ablation ICPMS analysis of planktic foraminifera
  Dr T Ezard, Prof G Foster, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Planktic foraminifera are unicellular protists that secrete a 100-1000 m multi-chambered shell during their four week life cycle.
  Does mountain building control long-term climate?
  Dr B Mills, Prof A Haywood
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the famous uplift-weathering hypothesis. Raymo and Ruddiman (1992) proposed that the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau over the last 50 million years has been the principal driver of the substantial global cooling over this interval.
  Multimodal imaging of airborne particulate matter (PM) pollution as a means of source apportionment
  Prof G Foster, Dr M Loxham, Dr R B Cook, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Airborne particulate matter (PM) is a key risk factor for premature death (8.9 million per annum worldwide) and reduced quality of life due to a range of diseases of the respiratory and cardiovascular system, with growing evidence for roles in metabolic and cognitive impairments [1].
  (STFC DTP) FORMATION CONDITIONS OF REFRACTORY INCLUSIONS AND CHONDRULES IN CHONDRITIC METEORITES
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Jones, Dr R Tartese
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chondrite meteorites contain the earliest solid material that formed within our Solar System, 4.6 billion years ago. These meteorites are predominantly made up of millimetre-sized particles known as chondrules, and very fine-grained (sub-micrometre) matrix [1].
  (STFC DTP) Halogen behaviour during shock metamorphism and alteration on Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Dr P Clay, Prof J Day, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The heavy halogens (Cl, Br and I) are incompatible and fluid-mobile, making them excellent tracers of volatile evolution and transport processes on planetary bodies.
  (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: 4 December 2019

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.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Space weathering of carbonaceous asteroids and its astrobiological implications
  Prof M Lee, Dr C Persano, Dr L Daly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two missions are currently en route to collect samples from carbonaceous asteroids and return them to Earth. The OSIRIS-Rex mission (NASA) will sample Bennu, whereas Hayabusa2 (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) will visit the asteroid Ryugu.
  From vent to exposed communities: understanding the spread and impacts of toxic metal pollution from large volcanic eruptions
  Dr E Ilyinskaya, Dr J Harvey, Prof F Pope, Dr D Fecht
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 29 million people live within 10 km of active volcanoes, and ~800 million within 100 km where they can be exposed to multiple volcanic hazards.
  Where did all the sulphur go? Understanding reactions of sulphur with iron and organic matter in anoxic oceans
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock, Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decades, it has emerged that increased CO2 in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution is one of the main drivers of accelerated global climate change.
