 Are you aware that you may have an ideal skillset for a PhD studying Earth's environment?. Environmental research is often multi-disciplinary, involving multiple specialists (including chemists) working together on a question.
  Up in smoke! Terrestrial carbon cycle feedbacks during warm climates
  Dr J Whiteside, Dr I Harding
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Organic carbon preserved within sedimentary rocks (fossil OC) is a major carbon reservoir and plays a crucial role in the long-term evolution of atmospheric CO2 and O2, and thus global climate.
  Molecular mechanisms of adaptation in globally successful cyanobacteria
  Dr I Tews, Prof E Achterberg, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Cyanobacteria are the most abundant photosynthetic organisms on the planet. Their success is rooted in a diversity of strategies that allow them to adapt to the highly varied physical and chemical marine.
  Some theories are more equal than others: A Bayesian approach to glacial-interglacial changes in ocean carbon storage
  Dr A Marzocchi, Dr S Josey, Dr M Jansen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s climate has undergone large transitions between cold “glacial” and warm “interglacial” stages.
  Tiny fractals in the sea: the biogeochemistry of particle shape
  Dr B Cael, Dr P Lam
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Particles* are a critical aspect of life and chemistry in the ocean. Marine particles are hotspots of biological activity, and their sinking mediates a major vertical transport of mass and energy that connects the sunlit and dark ocean ecosystems and fundamentally influences global biogeochemistry.
  Antarctica before ice sheets: polar climate history of past greenhouse worlds.
  Dr S Bohaty, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof R Levy, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. During the extremely warm global ’greenhouse’ period 50 million years ago, Antarctica was mostly ice free and hosted temperate forests in coastal regions of the continent.
  Provision or Poison? Biogeochemistry of sediments in a warming ocean
  Dr A Annett, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The importance of sediment processes in driving biogeochemical cycles, from blue carbon storage, to nutrients (silica, iron) and pollutants (lead, arsenic), are becoming increasingly recognized, from local to global scale [1].
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  Can enhanced weathering provide an effective climate change mitigation strategy?
  Dr C Pearce, Dr G Andrews, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Anthropogenic inputs of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere are the primary cause of global warming.
  Holocene reconstruction of terrestrial habitats and dispersal pathways in the Antarctic Peninsula and sub-Antarctic Islands
  Dr S Nogue-Bosch, Prof Peter Convey, Prof ME Edwards, Dr D.A. Hodgson
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Terrestrial environments of the sub-Antarctic and Antarctic present extreme challenges for life.
  Hydrate formation from CH4 released during serpentinisation. How important it is on Earth?
  Dr H Moreno, Dr G Bayrakci, Dr I Falcon Suarez, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that forms at high pressures and low temperatures when sufficient methane is available in continental margins and deep ocean sediments.
