  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.
  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.
  The Effects of Fluid Flow on the Transport Properties of Faults in Enhanced Geothermal Systems
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr S den Hartog, Dr A Busch, Dr J Buckman
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Successful operation of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGSs) requires easy flow of geothermal fluids. Pre-existing faults often provide low permeability pathways for fluid flow.
  Coupled thermo-fluid-mechanics of thermally stressed granite for Hot Dry Rock geothermal reservoir applications
  Prof A Goetz, Dr P Benson, Prof I Sass
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Professor Annette Goetz, Dr Philip Benson and Professor Ingo Sass (TU Darmstadt).
  Surface-based Modelling of Tensorial Fluid Flow in Fractured Systems – Application to Modelling Subsurface Energy from Petroleum and Geothermal Resources
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr M Bentley
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Fluid flow in the subsurface occurs in both porous rock matrices and in open fractures. Matrix flow is conventionally modelled in 3D cellular grids through which fluid flow is modelled in finite difference simulators.
  The Impact of Thermal Plumes on Aquifer Properties and Groundwater Quality
  Dr U Ofterdinger, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Global energy needs are steadily rising with a predicted increase of 45% within the next 15 years. In the long-term, sustainable energy is hoped to connect economic growth to increased social equity while preserving natural resources in line with the UN sustainable development goals.
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  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.
  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.
