  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: How is atmospheric CO2 captured by steel slag
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the crystallinity and crystallography of calcite which has precipitated during sequestration of atmospheric CO2 by steel slag.
  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper makingThis project will investigate the composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making, using a case study site at Milngavie, Scotland.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Delivery of water to early Earth by carbonaceous meteorites
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project asks whether the Earth’s hydrosphere could have come from outer space via water-rich meteorites. The focus of this work will be on analysing the abundance and hydrogen isotopic composition of water in Mighei-like (CM) carbonaceous chondrites.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: How life and steel slag interact – physical, chemical and biological breakdown of slag and the implications for remediation
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. Worldwide, it is estimated that steelmaking produces up to 250 million tonnes of waste slag per year.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Space weathering of carbonaceous asteroids and its astrobiological implications
  Prof M Lee, Dr C Persano, Dr L Daly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two missions are currently en route to collect samples from carbonaceous asteroids and return them to Earth. The OSIRIS-Rex mission (NASA) will sample Bennu, whereas Hayabusa2 (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) will visit the asteroid Ryugu.
  Space weathering of carbonaceous asteroids and its astrobiological implications
  Prof M Lee, Dr LH Hallis, Dr C Persano, Dr L Daly
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

Two missions are currently en route to collect and return samples from carbonaceous asteroids and return them to Earth. The OSIRIS-Rex mission (NASA) will sample Bennu, whereas Hayabusa2 (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) will visit the asteroid Ryugu.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Dr S M Sait, Dr K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Feedback-responsive protocells
  Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feedback in chemical systems can give rise to clocks, bistable switches or oscillations; all of these features are employed by living cells in order to generate robust decisions and outputs while existing in a deafening background of thermodynamic noise.
  Nutrient cycling and oxygenation of shallow seas during the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction and the early Jurassic
  Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton, Dr C Little, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will examine changes in nutrient and oxygen availability across an extended period of Earth history from just before the Triassic-Jurassic (T-J) boundary extinction, through its recovery interval and into the environmental changes that characterised the early Jurassic.
