  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  Tracing environmental impacts associated with hydrocarbon production with novel geochemical techniques
  Dr Z Zhou
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With recent government green light for Lancashire fracking, concerns have arisen over the potential environmental impacts associated with drilling and shale gas production.
  A fully coupled XFEM model for hydraulic fracturing in multi-phase porous media, Engineering – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Javadi, Prof J Coggan
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. Engineering, Streatham Campus. The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in February 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  De-risking unconventional hydrocarbon exploration through novel biogeochemical approaches: towards a systematic understanding of organic matter processes in the subsurface and their impact on the environment
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof T Wagner, Dr S Flynn, Dr E Hough, Dr R Pereira
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Shale gas is a major new energy source but is yet to be commercially exploited in Europe. Depending on how this opportunity develops, the new source of gas could contribute to decarbonising of energy with the potential to support the transition to a localised hydrogen economy.
  Optimal expansion planning of integrated energy networks under uncertainty
  Dr M Qadrdan
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Project start date. January, April, July or October 2019 - Duration. 3.5 Year. The GB gas and electricity networks play crucial roles in delivering energy to end users.
  Advanced methods for shale characterisation
  Dr E Mangano, Prof S Brandani
Applications accepted all year round
Shale gas has been recently recognised as a strategic energy source with the potential to revolutionise the worldwide energy layout and bridge the transition to a low-carbon future.
  (MERI) Assessment of fugitive methane gas emissions from UK fracking operations using unmanned aerial vehicle surveys and fixed-site monitoring (CASE studentship)
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr G Allen, Dr P Williams, Dr H Ricketts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ENVIROTECH LIMITED. Measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industry informs many environmental process studies, ranging from shorter-term assessments of air quality and its impacts on human health, to longer term understanding of climate change.
  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.
  What can hydrocarbon fingerprints tell us about fracking in organic-rich shales?
  Prof P S Monks, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The accurate estimation of the hydrocarbon content of potential source rocks is increasingly important as unconventional sources of hydrocarbons become economically viable and we look manage of our environment responsibly as we try to meet our energy needs.
  Prediction of proppant distribution during hydraulic fracturing process
  Dr M Manzari, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Shale reservoirs are one of the important unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and play an increasingly significant role among energy resources worldwide.
