Description of the thesis topic

As part of the ERC-funded HolyEarth project, the objective of this thesis is to model the chemical evolution of the Earth during its accretion. The numerical simulations provided as part of the HolyEarth project will indicate the origin of the material delivered to Earth and the timescales of accretion events. The PhD candidate will then model the chemical evolution of the Earth, including the partition of elements between the core and the silicate mantle, following the approach of Rubie et al. 2015, Icarus, 248, 89. The partition of the W between mantle and core will also be considered, which will test the accretion time scale provided by the simulations with the epsilon182W characterizing the Earth's mantle.

Work Context

The PhD student will carry out his/her thesis as part of the HolyEarth project: "a holistic approach to understand Earth formation", funded by the ERC (PI: A. Morbidelli). The candidate will interact with the project team (about 4-5 people in Nice) and more generally with the theoretical planetology team of the Lagrange Laboratory (~30 people), located on the historic site (Mont Gros) of the Côte d'Azur Observatory, in Nice (France). theory and modelling.
