  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Flickering switches in the landscape: searching for tipping-points, system noise and bifurcation in Natural Flood Management catchments
  Prof T Coulthard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural Flood Management (NFM) is an upcoming approach to managing flood risk in river basins – by modifying the hydrology through naturally sympathetic methods (such as small wooden dams, bunds and re-forestation).
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Prof J Dash, Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  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.
  (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].
  Rough bottoms on deep-water sandstones: using sole structures to improve flow and environmental prediction, and geohazard understanding — Featuring fieldwork in Canada/Poland, and experiments in Illinois, USA
  Prof J Peakall, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding geohazards in submarine systems is challenging because we can only measure the most dilute of flows, and even then we don’t have data close to the bed.
  Unlocking Western Tropical Indian Ocean temperature and hydroclimate back to the Little Ice Age and the Holocene, reconstructed from coral geochemistry
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indian Ocean sea surface temperatures (SST) play an important role in determining the location of precipitation over the tropics and the Indian Monsoon regions.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Impacts of weathering, redox cycling and microbial activity on the formation of kaolinite (china clay). PhD in Mining and Minerals Engineering (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr L Newsome
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Laura Newsome, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  The inner workings of the earthquake cycle: New insight from integrating geophysical observations and microstructures
  Dr L Gregory, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slip behaviour at and around faults has been shown to be highly dynamic with variability in behaviour occurring both spatially and temporally.
