  Investigating the Interactions between Drilling Mud and Surrounding Soil in Horizontal Directional Drilling
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round
Horizontal directional drilling is a technique that offers the ability to install pipes and cables without the need for open cut excavation.
  Rift fault activity and interaction at high resolution using geophysical and drilling data analysis from Greece and East Africa
  Prof L McNeill, Dr D Keir
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Active continental rifts and the faults that control their deformation are the source of earthquakes and create some of our most important sediment sinks.
  Formulation of Novel Drilling Fluid for Deep Water and Unconventional Hydrocarbon Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Since production from conventional, easy-to-produce, hydrocarbon reserves has started to decline, extraction of unconventional resources has then become the focus of oil and gas industry.
  Anatomy of subduction megathrust: a unique view from deep drilling into the Nankai Trough, Japan
  Prof D Faulkner, Dr J Bedford, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Subduction zone megathrust earthquakes are the largest and most destructive on earth, with many rupturing the seafloor and generating devastating tsunamis such as that produced after the M9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in 2011.
  Fault systems and fluid-rock interaction in the Samail peridotite: implications for carbon capture in mantle rocks.
  Dr E Mariani, Prof J Wheeler, Prof L Crispini, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Samail peridotite in the Oman Mountains is namely one of the largest peridotite bodies exposed on land and it was emplaced by obduction of oceanic lithosphere between 95 and 70 Ma (e.g Searle et al.
  Tracing environmental impacts associated with hydrocarbon production with novel geochemical techniques
  Dr Z Zhou
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With recent government green light for Lancashire fracking, concerns have arisen over the potential environmental impacts associated with drilling and shale gas production.
  Design and development of new non-threaded drill pipe connector
  Dr N Faisal, Dr J Njuguna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Fully-funded MRes Studentship. (Reference ENG18-NF). School of Engineering, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. Closing Date. Monday 7th January 2019.
  Machining of advanced materials.
  Dr R Hood, Dr L Soo
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are accepted for a PhD project in the area of Machining of Advanced Materials (titanium alloys, nickel based superalloys, composite materials and nuclear materials).
  Drought history of Southern Africa from windblown dust in ocean sediments and links to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr A Crocker, Dr S Bohary
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. As Earth heats up this century because of human forcing, precipitation patterns will change globally.
  Evolution of Antarctic circumpolar oceanic circulation and high-latitude climate
  Dr S Bohary, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic basins.
