  Correlation, Provenance and Reservoir Quality of Triassic Strata in the Central North Sea
  Prof A Hartley, Prof D Jolley, Prof J Howell
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triassic fluvial successions form important primary and secondary reservoirs in the Central North Sea (CNS) and contain significant future exploration potential.
  Reservoir modelling of Triassic fluvial strata in the Central North Sea
  Prof J Howell, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triassic fluvial successions form important primary and secondary reservoirs in the Central North Sea (CNS) and contain significant future exploration potential.
  Combine Digital Rock Technology and AI to Identify Remaining Hydrocarbon potential
  Dr K Wu, Dr A Starkey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in multiscale digital rock technology have made it possible to quantify the spatial distribution of wettability and model the heterogeneous 3D microstructures of reservoir rocks at large scale.
  The impacts of heterogeneity of reservoir rock property on the multiphase flow and oil recovery from pore scale to reservoir scale
  Dr K Wu, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the subsurface materials, such as reservoir rocks, soils and other porous media are highly heterogeneous with a wide range of length scales.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Evaluating the effectiveness of rangeland resting initiatives in communal grazing systems in South Africa
  Dr J Bennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, most rangeland systems in communal areas of South Africa are subject to limited collective management and tend to be continuously grazed as a result (Palmer and Bennett 2013).
  PhD Fellow in Soil Environmental (Bio)Geochemistry (m/f/x)
  Prof L G Benning
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association we are part of the largest German scientific organization.
  Geological and geomorphological characterisation of West Cumbria
  Dr J Lawrence
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Description. One PhD scholarship funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is open for applications at Imperial College London.
  Fully funded PhD opportunity in Seismology which aims at characterizing the active tectonics along with the seismic and volcanic hazards in the Red Sea and western Saudi Arabia, with particular focus on the transform fault systems
  Dr L Parisi, Dr S Jonsson, Dr M Mai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a highly motivated PhD student to join our research teams in Computational Earthquake Seismology (CES) and Crustal Deformation and InSAR (CDI) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.

  Prof J E Bullard, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. CENTA20-LU3. Start date. 1 October 2020. Closing date. 10 January 2020. Interview date. Week beginning 3 February 2020.
  Elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements in the lithosphere
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements between minerals (sulfides and silicates) and melts and how they relate to volatile elements.
