  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Dr J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  Developing new environmentally-friendly solutions for well plugging and abandonment (well P&A)
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrocarbon leakage from subsurface environments has been a critical concern for groundwater resources and atmospheric pollutions.
  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.
  Living in the dark: Impact of winter warming on ecosystem stability in the terrestrial high Arctic
  Prof D Chadwick
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The high Arctic is warming at an alarming rate, disrupting soil carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles. This is resulting in increased soil microbial activity with subsequent increases in nutrient availability and hence plant productivity and nutrient losses to the wider environment.
  Impact of sea level rise on atmospheric CO2 concentration over glacial-deglacial periods
  Dr T Rippeth
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
One of the great under-answered questions in the geosciences relates to the cause of the big drop in the concentration of CO2 in the preindustrial atmosphere during ice ages.
  Sea salt from blowing snow above sea ice - variability and magnitude of a new particle source in a warming world
  Dr M Frey, Prof E Wolff, Dr X Yang, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Importance of the area of research concerned. Atmospheric aerosols represent the largest source of uncertainty in global climate predictions.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership
We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2019 and covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  Geochemical controls on the dermal absorption of organic soil contaminants
  Dr C Vane
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
This CASE PhD studentship is a unique opportunity to make significant advances in the field of organic geochemistry and risk-based land management of post-industrial brownfield land.
