  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  Slope stability and climate change in high-mountain regions: Understanding and predicting geo-hazards.
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Dr J West, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIGHLIGHTS. ------------------. Timely project. a game changing approach is urgently needed to improve understanding, model and forecast landslides in mountainous areas.
  Landslide early warning: developing novel geophysical monitoring approaches to ‘see inside’ unstable slopes
  Dr J Chambers, Prof A M Binley
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g.
  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation (CENTA2-SGGE13-PURN1)
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  Heat Transfer between the ocean and the seabed: implications for the effective operation of marine high voltage cables.
  Dr J Dix, Dr G Callender, Dr J Pilgrim, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The temperature of the sediments that surround buried marine high voltage cables play a critical role in their design, operation and maintenance.
  Constraining mantle dynamics with seismic data
  Prof J H Davies, Dr J Wookey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains result from the dynamic Earth, driven by mantle convection. This fundamental process that underlies all these very important phenomena is very poorly understood.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty, Prof P Wilson, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof H Scher
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
  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.
  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).
