  Reading the molecular fine print: Ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry and the environmental impact of the Athabasca oil sands industry
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  Investigations into the impact of emissions reduction technologies in advanced combustion engines on oil dilution– In collaboration with the Ford Motor Company.
  Dr C Bannister
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre (PVRC) at the University of Bath is seeking a PhD candidate for an experimental/modelling project, backed by the Ford Motor Company, investigating how state of the art aftertreatment systems utilised within advanced vehicle powertrains impact on oil dilution rates.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Big data of multiphase flow measurement for optimising oil and gas production
  Dr Y Yang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Oil and gas occupies a significant sector in the world’s energy structure. The trend to construct digital oil fields based on internet of things has raised increasing demand for accurately monitor the health and production of the entire oil field down to individual wells in a real-time manner.
  Design of an emission reduction system for electricity generators with biodiesel from waste cooking oil
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round
Waste cooked oil, containing fat and grease, is widely available at pubs, cafes, canteens and restaurant and has a large influence on the environment.
  Experimental study and data mining of microbial enhanced oil recovery processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Enhanced oil recovery processes have been developing fast over the last 2 decades to improve both the economics and efficiency of hydrocarbon recovery.
  Surface complexation modelling of the zeta potential at oil-brine and brine- rock interfaces: the application to wettability characterisation and EOR via controlled salinity waterflooding
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Controlled salinity waterflooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The incremental oil recovery by the controlled salinity waterflooding yields up to 40% of oil originally in place to be recovered in addition to initial primary waterflooding.
  PhD Studentship: Downhole Wireless RF Communications for Deployment in Oil and Gas Wells
  Dr S Podilchak
Applications accepted all year round
There is an industry desire to create and extend the usage of RF wireless technologies to develop future digital-based oil fields.
  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  Carbon Down the Drain: Controls on DOC production and transport in oil palm plantations and forests on tropical peatland
  Prof S Page, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical peatlands are dense, long-term stores of carbon (C) that are vital components of global C soil-atmosphere exchange processes.
