  DOC-SWEET - Deep Ocean Circulation during Super-Warm Early Eocene Temperatures
  Dr T van de Flierdt, Dr D Lunt
Applications accepted all year round
Knowledge of our future climate rests almost entirely on the accuracy of complex numerical models of the Earth system. These models are rooted in our understanding of the current climate state, and therefore require evaluation when simulating the substantially warmer climates expected in the future.
  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
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.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  The predictability and perils of woolly mammoth hunting during the European Gravettian
  Dr A Pryor, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Global warming in the geological past: understanding the dynamics of an ancient Antarctic glaciation
  Dr B Fox
Application Deadline: 25 April 2019
Six new fully funded PhD research studentships are offered in the School of Applied Sciences for a 23 September 2019 start. The School is made up of the Departments of Biological and Geographical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Archaeology
The Department of Archaeology at York is a vibrant research community and a centre of excellent research-led teaching.
