  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.
  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.
  SCENARIO - Capturing extremes in physics-based modelling of near-Earth Space Weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Watt, Prof P Williams
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Space Weather is the name given to the natural variability of the plasma and magnetic field conditions in near-Earth Space. In the Earth’s outer radiation belt – a region of space between around 2.5 and 10 Earth radii surrounding our planet – high energy electrons are trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field.
  E4 DTP is Edinburgh Earth, Ecology and Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD projects addressing the most exciting. and important questions in Environmental Science.
  Our Place Our Future: Developing and testing an integrated climate risk framework for heritage sites in Scotland.
  Dr K Crowley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is not only threatening our future but destroying our past. Working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) this project will examine the impacts to heritage sites in Scotland under future extreme climate risk scenarios.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Environmental change, monsoon variability and human impact in Southeast Asia
  Dr J Lacey, Dr S McGowan
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek an excellent student to investigate environmental change, monsoon variability, and human impact in a Southeast Asian tropical lake.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Volcanological and petrogenetic research in the various eroded volcanic centres of the North Atlantic Palaeogene Igneous Province (NAPIP) have greatly informed our understanding of processes in both caldera volcanoes and flood basalt magmatism (e.g., Gooday et al., 2018).
  Hydrological and climate variability research
  Dr M Hanel, Dr I Markonis, Dr P Maca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hydrological and Climate Variability Research Group of the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (Faculty of Environmental Sciences) seeks a PhD student.
  Nature of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in Tibet, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be carried out in collaboration with the China University of Geosciences – Beijing focusing on structural geology, geochronology, igneous petrology and tectonics of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in order to better understand the evolution of the Tibetan Plateau.
  26 Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Environmental Research NERC

Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.
  Investigating subducting slabs in the Earth’s mantle transition zone with seismic data
  Dr A Nowacki, Dr A Walker, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tectonic oceanic plates are usually subducted beneath another plate and sink deep into the Earth, eventually being mixed back into the rest of the mantle.
  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
