  (STFC DTP) Analysis and modelling of planetary atmospheres
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr G Allen
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This exciting PhD project will bring together an interdisciplinary supervisory team to investigate weather and climate on other planets within our solar system.
  (STFC DTP) Combining neutron diffraction experiments and microstructural analyses to investigate the fracturing of pyroxenes
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
The link between aqueous fluids and potential habitability means that assessing the distribution of liquid water at or near the surface of Mars throughout its history remains a strong focus of missions to Mars.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the water and volatile inventory of unequilibrated ordinary chrondrites
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Jones
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Introduction. One of the vital ingredients that allowed the emergence of life on the Earth is liquid water. Therefore,understanding the origin(s) of Solar System water, together with other volatile species, is of primaryimportance for the study of life in the universe.
  (STFC DTP) Sources and processing of volatiles in the highlands lunar regolith
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Introduction. Apollo 16, the fifth of six manned missions that landed on the Moon (8.59°S, 15.30°E), returned rocks and soils from the central nearside Descartes Mountains and Cayley Plains Formations.
  (STFC DTP) Volatile processing during planetary differentiation: insights from Asteroid 4 Vesta
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof R Burgess, Dr R Garwood
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Introduction. Image looking down at Vesta’s north pole. This image of Vesta was taken from the last sequence of images of NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, looking down at Vesta’s north pole.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  [EPSRC iCASE] Biotechnological production of metal nanoparticles for catalysis
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof J Lloyd, Dr V Coker, Dr S Haigh, Dr R Kimber
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
