  PhD: Microbial activity at the ice-soil interface in a High-Arctic setting
  Dr J Bradley, Dr A Jungblut, Prof K Heppell
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The Arctic is currently experiencing amplified effects of climate change, including dramatic warming, the widespread retreat of glaciers, and the thawing of permafrost.
  How ’orogenic’ is orogenic gold? Field-based study of the Scottish Grampian
  Dr T Torvela, Dr R Chapman, Dr D Morgan, Dr J Harvey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use a holistic approach, including a novel method of looking into gold particle characteristics, to distinguish between magmatic and orogenic (non-magmatic) sources for gold.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Onshore/Offshore Seismic Imaging of the New Zealand Subduction Zone
  Dr N Harmon, Prof L McNeill, Dr C Rychert
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The behaviours and processes that occur at subduction zones inform our global understanding of plate boundary interaction at a variety of scales with broad implications for plate tectonics, volatiles cycling, seismic hazard and climate.
  Hydrological and climate variability research
  Dr M Hanel, Dr I Markonis, Dr P Maca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hydrological and Climate Variability Research Group of the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (Faculty of Environmental Sciences) seeks a PhD student.
  The Rise and Fall of the Lower Mantle: Modelling Thermal Conductivity in Earth’s Interior
  Dr S Stackhouse, Dr A Walker, Dr J Mound
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. The Earth’s lower mantle is convecting, with cold slabs subducting and hot plumes rising. Surface expressions of this large-scale convection include earthquakes, volcanism, oceanic trenches, mid-ocean ridges and island arc chains.
  Ultra-low frequency waves in the terrestrial magnetosphere (GEO/2020/YEO2)
  Prof T Yeoman, Dr D Wright
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Within the Terrestrial space environment, such waves manifest themselves as Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves with periods ranging from tens to thousands of seconds.
