  Constraining mantle and crustal contributions to the Cretaceous Antarctic Peninsula Arc (CENTA2-SGGE17-BARR)
  Dr T Barry, Dr D J Smith, Dr P Leat, Dr J Smellie
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The poorly understood Antarctic Peninsula continental volcanic arc was active between Late Jurassic and Early Miocene times.
  The origin of layering and platinum ores in the Flatreef of the Bushveld Complex: reactive porous flow in a sill complex?
  Prof W Maier, Dr S Tapster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The Flatreef is a world-class platinum-group element (PGE) deposit recently discovered down-dip from existing mining and exploration operations on the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex.
  Layers? No Layers? Or both: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s magnetic field is essential for life on Earth and is produced in Earth’s outer core. Numerical models of the geodynamo show that a combination of chaotic convection of the liquid iron-nickel alloy and Earth’s rotation produces the flow structures essential for the geodynamo process.
  Seismicity, fault rheology, and fault evolution across Africa
  Dr T Craig, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the seismicity associated with the major tectonic regimes of Africa using a combination of earthquake seismology, satellite geodesy, and structural geology.
  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.
  Large-scale mapping of the thickness of the crust from satellite gravity and gravity gradient data
  Dr L Uieda, Prof R Holme
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geophysical methods offer a window into the deep Earth through indirect observations, such as disturbances in the Earth’s gravity field.
  The effect of cyclic subsurface hydrogen storage on the mechanical and transport properties of reservoir rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr S den Hartog, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen storage is a promising technology to account for fluctuations, e.g. seasonal, in the global energy demand. However, little is known about the response of the reservoir rocks to the related fluctuations in pore fluid pressure and chemistry.
  Combining magma flow models and deformation measurements to understand magma ascent at silicic volcanoes
  Prof J Neuberg, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volcanic deformation can be caused by a broad range of processes related to the movement and evolution of magma. The type of processes detectable depends on the temporal and spatial resolution of the measurement method.
  The past as the key to the future: assessing ecological and landscape response to rising sea level (CASE funded)
  Dr N Barlow, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to develop a large-scale palaeo landscape dataset from the North Sea, which may be used to better forecast future coastline response to changing sea level.
  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.
