  Low temperature, rare earth element (REE) minerals in the Welsh Basin: applying micro-analytical techniques to the study of monazite formation (CENTA2-SGGE10-ZALA)
  Dr J A Zalasiewicz, Dr T Barry
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large, long-lived, mud-dominated sedimentary basins are the sites of some of the most economically and societally-significant processes in geology, including the generation of oil and gas, and the formation of metallic mineral deposits.
  Organism responses to environmental change – testing hypotheses of dietary niche shifts in cichlid fishes over historical and longer timescales (CENTA2-SGGE14-PURN2)
  Prof M A Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cichlids provide textbook examples of speciation driven by dietary specialisation. The link between diversity and trophic niche partitioning should mean that periods of environmental change, colonization events, and introductions of invasive fish species have a significant impact on the dietary ecology of cichlids.
  Plastic in rivers: transport, behaviour and fate (CENTA2-SGGE16-GABB)
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr C Russell, Prof S Rice
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rivers feed the world’s oceans with freshwater, sediment and more recently with large quantities of plastic. Estimates of the amount of plastic entering the environment via fluvial systems are challenging to constrain and range from 4.8-12.7 million tonnes in 2010 (Jambeck et al., 2015).
  Pteraichnites’ and their implications for pterosaur terrestrial palaeoecology and evolution (CENTA2-SGEE8-UNWI)
  Dr D Unwin, Prof M A Purnell, Dr R Butler, Dr PL Falkingham
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pterosaurs, Mesozoic flying reptiles, were long considered to have been almost exclusively confined to aerial niches, with only limited mobility when on the ground (Unwin, 2005).
  The Anthropocene geochemical footprint in the Great Barrier Reef (CENTA2-SGGE11-ZINK1)
  Prof J Zinke, Dr T Barry
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many geo-ecosystems around the world are increasingly modified by Humans. Coral Reefs are no exception. Geologists are currently debating the formalisation of the term Anthropocene as a new chronostratigraphic geological unit.
  The early Palaeozoic evolution of Vietnam (CENTA2-SGGE18-HARV1)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr J A Zalasiewicz
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project follows in the footsteps of the French Indochinese Geological Survey, who in the first decades of the 20th century discovered many new Palaeozoic fossils in northern Vietnam and southern China.
  Understanding and mitigating the environmental impacts of metal ore processing wastes produced using “green” solvents (CENTA2-SGGE9-JENK)
  Dr G Jenkin, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional mineral extraction from mined ores (e.g. for metals) is often an energy-intensive process, requiring either smelting or leaching at elevated temperature, or the use of large quantities of strong acids or bases that are energy intensive to produce.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
