PhD position at Plymouth University (UK) on brittle-viscous deformation cycles in quartz veins
Please see the following fully funded PhD studentship at Plymouth University on brittle-viscous deformation cycles in quartz veins:
Deadline: 12 noon 16th November, for a January or April start. Applications must be submitted through Plymouth University website (follow one of the links above).
The project will investigate a network of quartz veins emplaced along brittle-viscous fault zones in the Baltic Shield in Finland. The material comes from a site chosen for the disposal of high-grade radioactive waste in an underground repository (Onkalo, Finland). The project will be based at Plymouth University, UK (supervisors Luca Menegon and Mark Anderson) and will be conducted in collaboration with the University of Bologna, Italy (Giulio Viola and Paolo Garofalo) and with Posiva Oy, the Finnish expert organisation in radioactive waste management (Jussi Mattila).
Please forward the advert to potential candidates.
