  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  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.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Understanding current and future impacts of public water supply on macronutrient cycles around the world
  Mr M Ascott, Dr B Surridge
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, huge investment is made in infrastructure to obtain, process and distribute clean water to human society. These public water supply (PWS) processes also alter the movement of a wide range of chemical elements within the Earth system.
  CO2 weathering of glacial till as nutrient source for Cryogenian biospheric oxygenation 720-635 million years ago (CO2-CryoBiophere)
  Dr E Chi Fru, Dr AC Smith, Dr E Bagshaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. It has been suggested that the release of glacial flour phosphate to the Neoproterozoic Ocean, 712-635 million years (Myr) ago, stimulated the Neoproterozoic Oxygenation Event (NOE) and emergence of photosynthetic eukaryotic algae to prominence.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr E John
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  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).
  Microbial survival and activity in bentonite clay: relevance to the safety case for geological disposal of radioactive waste
  Dr H Sass, Dr S Gregory
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The disposal of radioactive waste in geological disposal facilities (GDF) deep underground is being planned by several countries including the UK.
  Novel window into old crust: How did Earth’s continents form?
  Dr M A Millet, Dr O Nebel, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. The formation of Earth’s continents during the Archean eon is one of the major transformation that our planet has experienced throughout its history.
