  (STFC DTP) Using minerals analogues to understand effects of sterilisation procedures and applications for Mars Sample Return
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr K Joy, Dr S Nixon, Prof M Patel, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future missions aim to collect samples from a range of planetary bodies. NASA and ESA are working on plans for a series of Mars missions to collect, transport and return rocks and soil samples to the Earth.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Dynamics of carbon capture in Scottish and Irish peatlands over the past centuries
  Dr M Blaauw, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store and potentially release large amounts of carbon, and thus it is essential to predict their role in future warming (e.g., Gallego-Sala et al., 2018; Ferretto et al.
  QUADRAT DTP: Landscapes of Production: Exploring the Palaeaoenvironmental Context of Stone Tool Quarrying, Manufacture, Use and Deposition on Neolithic Shetland
  Dr W Megarry, Dr J E Schofield
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Landscapes of Production project will explore the palaeoenvironmental context of felsite tool quarrying in Neolithic Shetland.
  QUADRAT DTP: PALLADIA: ParAíba do suL deLtA seDImentary dynAmics
  Dr R Flood, Dr C North
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half a billion people live on or near deltas, often in megacities with deltas understood as sensitive environments under pressure.
  (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.
  Geomorphic and sedimentological evidence for long term earthquake and flood hazard in the Kathmandu Basin, Nepal
  Dr H Sinclair, Dr M Attal, Prof S Mudd
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project analyses evidence for long-term earthquake and flood hazard from the geomorphology of river profiles and terraces, and the sedimentological records of floods and debris flows in the Kathmandu region.
