For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  Interaction between fluid flow and stress fields from seismicity
  Dr D Keir, Dr T Gernon
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of high-pressure fluids in the Earth’s crust commonly causes rocks to fracture, thereby causing measurable small magnitude earthquakes (micro-seismicity) to occur.
  The development of Anthropocene biodiversity
  Prof C Thomas, Prof N Milner
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to investigate the impacts of humanity on biodiversity change. You will use a combination of biological and archaeological information to identify losses and gains of species diversity over time, and hence to provide insights into future impacts of human development on biodiversity.
  Scholarships available for SECReT: The International Training Centre for Security and Crime Related Research Degrees

Funding Type

PhD Type

UCL SECReT is the international centre for training in security and crime related research degrees, the first centre of its kind in Europe.
  Arctic climate extremes: the role of changing interactions between atmospheric modes (MARSHALLUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr G Marshall, Prof I Renfrew, Dr S Hosking, Dr J Jones
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. During the past few decades the Arctic has experienced the greatest warming on Earth. the resultant sea ice loss, permafrost melting and snow cover changes have affected the regional hydrology, ecosystems and indigenous peoples.
  Unravelling the mysteries of air quality above polar snow and ice using the isotopic fingerprints of reactive nitrogen (FREYUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr M Frey, Prof J Kaiser
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Climate and environment in polar and high-altitude regions are particularly sensitive to anthropogenic perturbation.
  Quantifying the contribution of enhanced carbonate weathering to Earth system resilience. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof T Lenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Tim Lenton, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Past and future ocean productivity: Using ancient extinction crises to inform how we respond to today’s threats
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World’s ocean ecosystems may change fundamentally in the next few centuries due to the severe threats posed by present-day human activities which together are changing natural systems like never before.
  Will continental carbonates produce less or more deposition as we move into the Anthropocene?
  Dr M Rogerson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding future climate, and understanding carbon sequestration strategies, requires that we enhance our understanding of how carbon behaves in the Earth System.
  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.
  Drivers of seasonality contrasts in sea surface temperature and freshwater flux within the Intertropical and South Indian Ocean Convergence Zone – Holocene and present (CENTA2-SGGE12-ZINK2)
  Prof J Zinke, Dr A Boom, Dr P Hopcroft
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Scattered Islands are unique coral reef atolls located in the southwestern Indian Ocean along the climatologically important South Equatorial Current and Mozambique Channel ocean gateway.
  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.
  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.
  The earliest Lower Palaeolithic of the Middle Thames: Re-assessing the chronology and distribution of the high-level ancient river terraces
  Dr R Hosfield, Dr S Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of Britain’s earliest Palaeolithic sites are associated with estuaries and/or the lower reaches of major rivers. This distribution of sites suggests that the earliest colonisers may have been restricted to coastal habitats, with their milder micro-climates and distinctive resources.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
