  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
  DL-Assisted Interpretation and Upscaling of Petrophysical Properties in Carbonate Rocks
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr Z Jiang, Dr H Lewis
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Resources. SEM/CT images, in-house software tools (pore network model, Lattice-Boltzmann method, Tensorflow/ PyTorch/ Scikit-learn libraries).
  The greening of peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round
Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold mineralisation in the Zambezi and Lufilian belts of Zambia: part of a major polymetallic magmatic-metallogenic province?
  Dr DA Holwell, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) deposits are a diverse and complex type of hydrothermal ore systems that are the focus of much current scientific research in economic geology.
  Understanding the Catalytic Conversion of Sustainable Feedstocks via Operando Spectroscopy
  Dr J McGregor
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This project will develop more efficient heterogeneous catalytic processes for the conversion of sustainable feedstocks to alleviate societal dependence on fossil resources.
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  Surface complexation modelling of the zeta potential at oil-brine and brine- rock interfaces: the application to wettability characterisation and EOR via controlled salinity waterflooding
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Controlled salinity waterflooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The incremental oil recovery by the controlled salinity waterflooding yields up to 40% of oil originally in place to be recovered in addition to initial primary waterflooding.
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
