  Prediction of proppant distribution during hydraulic fracturing process
  Dr M Manzari, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Shale reservoirs are one of the important unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and play an increasingly significant role among energy resources worldwide.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi, Dr Y Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration
  Dr A Helden
Applications accepted all year round

  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.
  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.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  The environmental trade-offs of mining in a biodiversity hotspot
  Dr S Willcock
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Historically nations have traded-off environmental degradation to achieve economic development. However, a turning point is sometimes observed above a certain level of wealth where countries invest in pro-environmental efforts.
