  Feeling hot, hot, hot! Harnessing energy from magma in New Zealand
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr B Edwards, Dr G Kilgour
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Climate change, rising global populations, increasing energy consumption, and depletion of oil and gas reservoirs mean the exploitation of renewable energy resources, such as geothermal energy, is becoming increasingly important.
  Understanding and optimizing open loop geothermal systems with artificial intelligence and geophysics
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet, Prof P Pasquier
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Open loop geothermal systems have the potential to significantly reduce heating and air-conditioning costs. Geothermal systems use the ground, and more precisely the aquifer, as a heat reservoir.
  Methods and tools for the simulation and design of geothermal heat exchangers
  Prof M Cimmino
Applications accepted all year round
Context. Geothermal systems are playing an increasingly important role in ongoing worldwide efforts to develop environmentally friendly, sustainable, and efficient ways of fulfilling space heating and cooling demands.
  Seismicity induced by geothermal energy production
  Prof I Main, Dr M Naylor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Extraction of geothermal energy commonly induces micro-earthquakes, and sometimes these are large enough to be felt by the general population.
  Multi-Fluids Discontinuous Control Volume – Finite Element Methods(CVFEM) for Subsurface Geothermal Flows
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Immiscible displacement flows have been widely studied in contaminant dispersion in the subsurface (e.g., solute transport to aquifers, radionuclide’s diffusion in nuclear storage, etc) and oil & gas production (e.g., enhanced oil recovery, heavy oil production, etc) applications.
  The Stratigraphy and Emplacement of the Antrim Lavas (SEAL)
  Dr C T Stevenson, Dr S Watt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018).
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction
  Dr A Nowacki, Prof D Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our society depends on the safe extraction of energy from a mixture of natural resources, including heat from the ground in geothermal power production, and the exploitation of hydrocarbons.

  Dr A Nowacki, Prof D Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our society depends on the safe extraction of energy from a mixture of natural resources, including heat from the ground in geothermal power production, and the exploitation of hydrocarbons.
  Energy conversion in refrigerant-based district heating systems
  Prof M Cimmino
Applications accepted all year round
Context. The project consists in the study of energy conversion technologies in innovative refrigerant -based district heating systems.
  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
