  Development of collapse resistant Polymeric (PE-RT) liner in steel pipes for sour hydrocarbon applications at 90ºC and 1500psi (NSIRC 197)
  Dr B Craster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymeric liners are under investigation for their reliable use as permeation barriers to protect steel pipes used in the transport of fluids containing carbon dioxide and in some cases hydrocarbons.
  Coupled flow-geomechanics for prediction of propagation and collapse of wormholes in matrix acidizing
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acidizing is an established technique to stimulate enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.

  Research Group: Inflammation & Obesity
  Dr C Schiering
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded 3.5 year PhD programme available in the lab of Dr. Chris Schiering at the London Institute of Medical Sciences.

  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
