  Sensing tribology within heavy machines
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Robert Wood. Co-supervisor Terry Harvey. Project description. This PhD is aligned with a major EPSRC funded research being conducted at the national centre for advanced tribology at Southampton (nCATS) in collaboration the machine learning and sensors research groups in ECS.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

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

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.
  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

Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  Materials for Next-Generation Batteries
  Dr T Schoetz
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Theresa Schoetz. Co-supervisor Professor Themis Prodromakis. Project description.
  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

Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean. Part of this transport is via the ‘solubility carbon pump’ whereby CO2 dissolved in seawater is transported into the interior ocean.
  The death of oceanic mesoscale energy at western boundaries of ocean basins
  Dr E Frajka-Williams, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr G Evans, Dr L Clement
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mesoscale eddies – swirling vortices of water 100-200 km across—are highly energetic and ubiquitous in the world’s oceans, acting to redistribute energy and properties and potentially modulating the strength of the large-scale ocean circulation.
  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

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.
