  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.
  Global Cd and Pb signal in the Pan-Arctic - Influence of local and distant sources
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Prof V Chrastný, Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to define Cd, Pb isotope signals dominating in the Northern Hemisphere and its historical development.
  Isotope fractionation as a tool for evaluating the behaviour of Cd and Zn in contaminated soils
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of Cd and Zn isotopes is a powerful and novel tool for tracing the fate of these pollutants in the environment.
  Reducing the negative impact of agricultural drought by applying biochar to soil
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr VS Sipek, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This topic offers a multidisciplinary solution to currently highlighted issues such as drought, sustainable agriculture, limitation of nutrient leakage from soil, and also reducing CO2 emissions into the air.
  Reuse of purified grey waste water as an irrigation for the intensive green roofs containing biochar
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr AS Sochacki, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the topic is laboratory testing of sorption of selected (commonly occurring) grey water contaminants on biochar resp. biochar mixed with a substrate suitable for intensive green roofs.
  Revisiting the use of sewage sludge in agriculture and the role of emerging pollutants
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Assoc Prof M Vítková, Prof M Komárek
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sewage sludge has been commonly used for improving the nutrient status of agricultural soils. The development of various advanced analytial techniques has identified new risks associated with the so-called "emerging pollutants".
  Vineyard treatment using co-composted biochar in order to increase its soil retention capacity
  Research Group: Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group
  Dr L Trakal, Dr MH Hendrychova, Assoc Prof MP Pohorely
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim is to use compost with already proven and tested biochar for use in vineyards previously affected by drought. Specifically, the experiment will take place in a vineyard created as part of the reclamation of the brown coal dump near the city of Most.
  Natural Language Processing for knowledge modelling, discovery and reasoning systems
  Prof N Wiratunga
Application Deadline: 4 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are now accepting applications for a 3-year PhD studentship on Knowledge Modelling, Discovery and Reasoning with focus on Natural Language Processing in the School of Computing Science and Digital Media, Robert Gordon University.
  Sticky biomolecules - from sediments to astrobiology
  Dr D Benoit
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion of biological material to igneous rocks and silicates is still a poorly understood phenomenon at a molecular level. Yet such information is crucial in many domains where biological material comes into contact with rocky formations.
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
