Two PhD Projects Studying Glacial Geochemistry at Northumbria University, UK

Joseph Graly
Hello Cryolist,

Are you interested in how glaciers affect climate and geochemical cycling? Do you want to study minerals, isotopes and water chemistry? Do you want to be a part of the UK's largest glaciology research group? Come start a PhD at Northumbria University (Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, United Kingdom)!

I am sponsoring two competitively funded projects:

1) The first project focuses on glaciated volcanic islands as hotspots of chemical weathering, likely focusing on Jan Mayen and Iceland.The project is supported by the UK's Natural Environment Research Council, with fieldwork in Jan Mayen supported by the Research Council of Norway. Funding covers 3.5 years, starting Fall of 2021.The application deadline is 18 January.

2) The second project focuses on Meteoric 10Be as a tracer of chemical processes in formerly glaciated terranes. Fieldwork will focus on Northern England and Scotland and cosmogenic isotope analyses will be performed at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC). The project is funded internally by Northumbria University's Research Development Fund and by the UK's National Environment Isotope Facility. Funding covers 3 years, starting Fall of 2021. The application deadline is 29 January.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are interested in either project.
