  Methane emissions from wetland trees
  Prof S Johnston, Assoc Prof D Maher
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wetlands are among earth’s most efficient ecosystems for carbon sequestration, yet this capacity can be offset by emission of methane.
  Coupled flow-geomechanics for prediction of propagation and collapse of wormholes in matrix acidizing
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acidizing is an established technique to stimulate enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.
  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.
  Numerical modelling and design of geothermal heat recovery from subsurface systems
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geothermal energy technology, this is a common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system.
  Evaluation of Uranium Retention in Geological Minerals at the Sub-Micron Level
  Dr L Natrajan, Prof S Shaw, Prof N Kaltsoyannis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Uranium (U) is a key contaminant at many nuclear sites and its remediation remains a significant issue, as its speciation and mobility is complex.
  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Geography PhD opportunities

Funding Type

PhD Type

For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  Testing compositional-frequency-climate linkages across the caldera cycle: a case study from Campi Flegrei
  Dr E Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many volcanic systems exhibit remarkable cyclic behaviour, starting with eruptions of less evolved magma and transitioning to infrequent eruptions of more evolved magma before culminating in cataclysmic eruption.
  Molecular Understanding of the role of Surface Functionality on the properties of cellulose films and surfaces
  Prof Steve Parker, Prof J L Scott
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath has launched a joint PhD programme with Monash University, Australia.
  Effects of microplastic on ecosystem services in salt marshes (NOLTESU20SCI50)
  Dr S Nolte, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr A Mayes
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastic (MP) pollution has generated huge scientific and public interest in recent years. Early research mainly focused on the marine environment, studying MP abundance and impacts on fauna.
  Isotopic fingerprints of novel sources and sinks for atmospheric nitrous oxide (N2O) (KAISERJU20SCIO)
  Prof J Kaiser, Dr P Suntharalingam
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is the third-most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas and the most important currently emitted ozone-depleting substance.
  Using underwater robots to measure the breathing of the ocean (ROBINSONCU20SCIO)
  Prof C Robinson, Dr G Dall'Olmo
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The problem. The ocean is running out of oxygen, thereby reducing the volume of water in which oxygen breathing fish can live. Yet our understanding of how microbial respiration, the main process removing oceanic oxygen, is affected by increasing temperature, is severely limited.
  Informing Design of Novel Materials for Drug Pollution Remediation through Molecular Modelling
  Dr V Erastova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. In this project, molecular modeling will be used to bring atomic-level understanding to the retention and release of contaminants by soils.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
