PhD Opportunities with Bristol and the BGS

A number of PhD positions are now available to study applied geophysics, working jointly between myself (and colleagues) at Bristol University and the British Geological Survey.

We have 4 projects advertised. Click the links to see more information about each project:

Use this page to apply for any of these projects. The "slope stability" and "characterising fractures" projects will be hosted by the BGS. For more information about BGS-hosted projects, please see here, and note that in addition to the application process above, they must also send their application (CV, references, personal statement) to bufi "at" bgs.ac.uk.

We're really excited about these projects, so please forward on to anyone you know who will soon be finishing their undergrad or masters degree in subjects such as geoscience, physics, computer science or mathematics. 

* Please note the following regarding eligibility for DTP funding:

Applicants should have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a Master’s degree. Applicants with a minimum Upper Second Class degree and significant relevant non-academic experience are encouraged to apply.  All applicants need to comply with the registered University’s English language requirements.  The majority of the studentships are available for applicants who are ordinarily resident in the UK and are classed as UK/EU for tuition fee purposes, however, up to 9 fully funded studentships across the DTP are available for EU/EEA applicants not ordinarily resident in the UK.  Applicants who are classed as International for tuition fee purposes are not eligible for funding.
