Dear all,


Please circulate among students who may be interested.

We are advertising a series of PhD and MRes projects starting next academic year in our Environmental Sciences Research Institute.




There are several focussed on the Quaternary glacial record in Ireland; the following ones are supervised by me and colleagues at Durham University (UK), Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin.


PhD: Variability of the British-Irish Ice Sheet in the Rockall Trough (North Atlantic) through ice-rafted debris and micro-faunal record.


PhD: Late Quaternary glaciation of the continental shelf offshore of west Ireland


MRes: Glacial processes on the Irish continental shelf



A few more on Irish glaciations are supervised by other members of staff.


Detailed project outlines can be downloaded from the above links.


Deadline for applications is 23 March 2012.
