  Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Statistical Physics of Fluid Turbulence
  Prof G Eyink
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Eyink group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University is looking to support a full-time PhD student in theoretical physics starting September 2020.
  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.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  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.
  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.
