A studentship is now available for one of three planetary science PhD projects in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). The STFC is a world-leading multi-disciplinary science organisation with a clear mission: to deliver economic, societal, scientific and international benefits to the UK and to the world.
