  Earthquake-proofing of a new well stimulation technology
  Dr S Pytharouli
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project looks into the short and long-term impact that an emerging technology for well stimulation (pulsed injection) has on the rock and subsurface relative to induced seismicity.
  Evaluating the long-term activity and sediment delivery of large, soft-rock landslides in New Zealand
  Dr ST McColl, Prof I.C. Fuller, Dr H Smith
Application Deadline: 5 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD available in the Geosciences Group at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand, on the topic of.
  Pulsed fluid pumping for remediation of leakage from geological storage
  Dr J Roberts, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological energy (geoenergy) options such as CO2, hydrogen or compressed air energy storage and hydrogen or natural gas extraction are deemed fundamental to achieving the necessary transition to a low carbon future.
  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.
  Nature of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in Tibet, PhD project based at Monash University, Australia
  Prof R Weinberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be carried out in collaboration with the China University of Geosciences – Beijing focusing on structural geology, geochronology, igneous petrology and tectonics of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in order to better understand the evolution of the Tibetan Plateau.
  Developing a constitutive model for rock fracture under hydraulic fatigue loading through XCT experiments.
  Dr S Yang
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fracturing of rocks is an important part of several geological engineering applications geothermal energy, unconventional hydrocarbons, water resources).
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  Trajectories of soil structural change
  Prof J Quinton, Dr R Killick
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linked to the NERC/NSF funded (2020-2023) ‘Detecting soil degradation and restoration through a novel coupled sensor and machine learning framework’(Soil Change) project.
