TW:eed Master’s research projects at the University of Leicester


Are you a 3rd year undergraduate student at the University of Leicester? If so then read on….

We are currently advertising three TW:eed Master’s research projects for the academic year 2013/14. Each project will investigate the palaeoenvironments in which tetrapod fossils are found.
  1. Sedimentology and carbon isotope geochemistry in the Early Carboniferous of the Tweed Basin.
  2. The evolution of fluvial systems in the Early Carboniferous of the Tweed Basin.
  3. The evolution of marginal marine depositional systems in the Early Carboniferous Northumberland-Solway Basin. 
All the projects involve primary data collection (field work or the study of BGS boreholes). Lab work includes isotope sampling, preparation of sediments for thin section, micropalaeontological techniques and use of the SEM. Successful applicants will be trained in the relevant research techniques and will have the opportunity to work with members of the TW:eed team from other institutions.

If you are interested in applying then please contact Dr Sarah Davies.
