  Methane emissions from wetland trees
  Prof S Johnston, Assoc Prof D Maher
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wetlands are among earth’s most efficient ecosystems for carbon sequestration, yet this capacity can be offset by emission of methane.
  PhD in Chemistry: Tracking the source and history of methane using novel isotope systems
  Prof F Stuart, Dr M Clog
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the obvious importance of methane (CH4, natural gas), and decades of study, we still have little understanding of how and when it forms in sedimentary source rocks, what drives it into reservoir rocks, and what happens along the way to make the deposits economic or not.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Application of non-thermal plasma-assisted heterogeneous catalysis for the upgrading of methane
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr X Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  PhD in nanomaterials for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr S Eslava
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funding is available for a PhD studentship to start as soon as possible. The project will be based in the group of Dr Salvador Eslava in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London and will be linked to a recently awarded EPSRC Fellowship project to Dr Eslava.
  PhD in nanomaterials for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr S Eslava
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of artificial leaves is crucial to exploit the solar energy and meet the increasing population energy demand, which is rising 10% per year.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Multiscale modelling of shale gas flows
  Dr M Borg, Dr L Gibelli
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Edinburgh is seeking an excellent student to award a prestigious PhD scholarship to investigate the behaviour of methane gas inside porous rock media.
