PhD opportunities in Palaeoclimatology and Organic Geochemistry, University
of Glasgow. 
Students interested in palaeoclimatology and organic geochemistry are
eligible to compete for PhD studentships which provide a full stipend and
tuition. All projects concern the development and application of molecular
biomarker proxies to answer important questions concerning climatic and
environmental processes and change. Successful candidates will have access
to world class preparative and analytical facilities at the new Glasgow
Molecular Organic Geochemistry Laboratory (G-MOL) housed at the Department
of Geographical and Earth Sciences (GES) at the University of Glasgow (GU)
and at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC).
Several funding sources and projects are available: through SAGES (Scottish
Alliance for Geoscience the Environment and Society)
(http://www.sages.ac.uk/sages/studentships/themes/oceanatmos/) and through
the University of Glasgow
(http://web.ges.gla.ac.uk/opportunities/PhD_ops.htm). Overseas students can
apply in parallel for GU scholarships which fully cover international
tuition fees (http://www.gla.ac.uk/R-E/pub/pgr/ors/). Applicants should have
a 1st class bachelors or masters degree in geology, geography, chemistry or
a related discipline and should send requests for further information
(accompanied by a CV) to Dr James Bendle ([log in to unmask]).
