  A destabilising dynamo? Tracing and explaining Earth’s magnetic field evolution through the Cenozoic
  Prof A Biggin, Prof R Holme, Dr G Paterson, Dr M Hill
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to combine palaeomagnetic measurements and numerical models to describe and explain the evolution of Earth’s magnetic field through the last 80 million years.
  Artificial Intelligence in volcano seismology and eruption forecasting
  Dr S De Angelis, Prof Y Lavallee, Dr L Zuccarello
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to combine geophysical measurements with methods of Artificial Intelligence to monitor and forecast of volcanic eruptions.
  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.
  Bringing machine learning techniques to geophysical data processing
  Dr L Uieda, Dr S De Angelis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravity and magnetic surveys offer a cost-effective method for investigating sedimentary basins, mineral deposits, active tectonics in the oceans, and overall crustal structure.
  Caprock and overburden characterisation: avoiding leakage of CO2 from CCS sites
  Prof RH Worden, Prof D Faulkner, Prof K Taylor, Dr P Armitage
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to produce unusual data to characterise the caprock and overburden to CCS sites in the UK and beyond. CCS is an essential piece of the technical jigsaw required to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
  Detecting ancient carbon leaking from permafrost soils across the Arctic
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell, Dr M Garnett, Dr J Vonk
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to establish modeling and conceptual frameworks to identify enhanced release of carbon from permafrost catchments due to climate change and landscape disturbance.
  Detecting geomagnetic reversals: How low can you go?
  Dr G Paterson, Prof A Biggin, Dr M Brown
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to identify the best experimental methods for recovering accurate measures of weak magnetic fields and apply this knowledge to 13 million years old Icelandic rocks.
  Development of a workflow for the assessment of eruption source parameters and volcanic plume rise
  Dr S De Angelis, Prof Y Lavallee, Prof B Taisne
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overarching goal of the project is to test a multi-disciplinary framework to produce accurate estimates of key eruption parameters, and to evaluate the relationships between these parameters and volcanic plume rise.
  Disentangling landuse and climatic roles in sediment delivery to upland British lakes
  Dr H Sangster, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship seeks to exploit existing datasets compiled at Liverpool for a series of catchments from around the UK and develop new sites to disentangle the competing roles of landuse and climate on sediment delivery to lakes.
  Durability of detrital grain-coating clays during sediment transport
  Dr I Verhagen, Prof RH Worden, Dr S De Angelis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to conduct a detailed, laboratory-based study investigating how grain-coating clays, crucial to sandstone reservoir quality, behave during sediment transport.
