  Flow in porous media (EPS2020/48)
  Prof M Maroto-Valer
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reactive flow in porous media (experimental studies and/or numerical simulations) of manufactures porous replicas.
  Synthesis and functional studies of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) derived from high oxidation state metal ions
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr K Afarinkia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers which are known secondary building units or SBUs.
  PhD in Chemistry - Metal oxides by Design
  Dr L Vilà-Nadal
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek to recruit a highly motivated and talented PhD student in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow within the research group of Dr Laia Vilà-Nadal http://www.chem.gla.ac.uk/wp/lvn-group/ The successful candidate will be part of a multidisciplinary effort aimed at applying the concept of ‘materials by design’ to metal oxide chemistry synthesis.
  Low-field NMR studies to probe motion and dynamics in rock pore structures
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantification of transport and dynamics in rock pore structures is essential for understanding, optimising and enhancing oil and gas recovery as well as assess the capacity and effectiveness for CO2 storage.
  Sustainable conversion of biomass-based wastes into porous bio-carbons and their application in CO2 capture - LEVERHULME
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current most difficult challenge of biomass-based wastes is the lack of a volume-balancing set of applications and valorisation techniques which can decrease the large volumes that are sent to the landfill.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Model of the Regenerative Heat Exchangers (Regenerators) for low temperature applications (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/PEREIRA)
  Dr C Costa Pereira, Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for highly efficient, reliable, and affordable low temperature cooling systems without using sophisticated cascade compressors or expensive liquid nitrogen infrastructure, keeps increasing in various industrial sectors.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Nature-Inspired Low Friction Lubricated Surfaces
  Prof G McHale
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of the world’s disposable energy is lost through friction and drag. This project will create new types of liquid and liquid-like surfaces which remove liquid friction and drag.
  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.
