When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  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.

  Statistics of porous media attributes and mixing processes state variables across scales
  Dr M Mousavi-Nezhad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typical observations of porous media attributes arise from a variety of techniques which have their own spatial resolution and associated uncertainty.

  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).
  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.
