  Modelling the influence of solar activity on climate. PhD in Physics and Astronomy (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr J Manners
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr James Manners, Department of Physics and Astronomy, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  How and why is deformation localised in continental crust?
  Dr S Piazolo, Prof T Wright, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will collect and use geological field investigations of the exhumed lower crust to constrain models of strain localisation, and compare these against modern geodetic data from the India-Asia collision.
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in both strength and structure. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
  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.
  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. One way to understand how these networks function is to compare them between related species, to see which genes are common between them and which are unique.
