  Modelling growth, deposition and breakage of dynamic particle structures (EPS2020/52)
  Dr V Francia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigation of the structure of cohesive powders under various flow regimes. Combining AI driven tools with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element methods (DEM), we will look into how dynamic particle structures form in complex systems.
  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Craig Magee (Leeds), Dr William McCarthy (St Andrews), Dr Douglas Paton (Leeds). Overview. Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  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.
  Volcanic seismicity and eruption forecasting at the basaltic caldera volcanoes of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
  Dr A Bell, Prof I Main
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will undertake the first systematic study of seismicity of the basaltic volcanoes of the Galapagos Islands, providing new insights into their behaviour, and methods for forecasting future eruptions.
  How hot is the bottom of Earth’s mantle?
  Dr A Walker, Dr C Davies, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Can you combine geophysics, fluid dynamics and mineralogy to construct a deep-Earth thermometer and better constrain Earth’s energy budget?.
  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.
  Exploring combined geothermal power and mineral extraction potential of the Galway granite complex
  Dr D Mcnamara, Prof J Wheeler, Prof D Faulkner, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to carry out a detailed structural analysis of the fracture networks in and around the Galway granite, determine through flow modelling how it may operate as an enhanced geothermal system, and explore ore mineralisation related to hydrothermal flow within existing structural networks.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Forecasting the Spatial-Temporal Evolution of Natural Hazards
  Dr M Naylor, Prof F Lindgren, Prof I Main
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. You will develop a new Bayesian framework for forecasting the occurrence and evolution of natural hazards by adapting a cutting edge spatio-temporal modelling package, originally developed for ecological systems.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren, Prof J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  Forecasting the future of Earth’s magnetic field using artificial intelligence
  Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life on the surface along with modern electrical infrastructure from harmful solar radiation.
  Fractures and Fabrics in Glacier Ice: Sensitivity of Seismic Anisotropy for Antarctic Ice Masses
  Dr A Booth, Dr M Hildyard, Dr A Nowacki, Dr S de Ridder
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With an Antarctic field deployment and access to novel seismic data, could you explore new applications of seismic anisotropy to address pressing questions for Antarctic ice-mass stability?.
