  Development of advanced adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This experimental project will face the global challenge of reducing emissions from industrial activities. The research candidate will develop advanced adsorbent materials aiming at the separation of undesired species and/or impurities from industrial gas mixtures.
  Interplays of Compressible Gas, Liquid Phase and Organic Pore Surfaces in Shale Pores, and their Impacts on Shale Gas Production: a Pore-scale Modelling Study
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr J Ma
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
The transport behaviours of highly compressible shale gas in presence of a liquid, either as wetting or non-wetting phase, within mechanically weak organic pores are poorly understood although their impacts on shale gas production are believed to be great.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round
The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Velocity Map Imaging of the Dynamics of Gas-Liquid Surface Reactions
  Dr SJ Greaves
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The project will study reactions at the gas-liquid interface using novel experimental strategies combined with unique computational techniques.
  Direct Elucidation of the Gas Adsorption Behaviour of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) by In-situ Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction
  Dr M Attfield, Dr I Vitorica-Yrezabal, Dr G Whitehead
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
An EPSRC DTG funded 42 month PhD Studentship is available in the Centre for Nanoporous Materials, School of Chemistry for an outstanding chemist in the field of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
  Greenhouse Gas Cycling in Supraglacial Debris Covers (Ref: OP19_63)
  Prof B Brock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Debris-covered glaciers extend over 4000 km2 in the high Asian Mountains and are significant and expanding features of most of the World’s glacierized mountain ranges.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  High Sensitivity, Multispecies Gas Sensing in Hollow Core Fibres
  Dr N Wheeler
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019
This project aims to develop an ultra-high sensitivity, multispecies Raman-based gas sensor. This sensor would be suitable for applications such as environmental sensing (e.g.
