  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  PhD Studentship: Next-Generation Fracture Modelling
  Dr A Paluszny
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractures transform Earth materials. They change their mechanical and flow properties and create intricate subsurface networks that enhance permeability at local and regional scales.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Master/PhD Project: Undersea permafrost characterization using seismic attenuation
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extensive offshore areas all around the world are underlain by terrestrial permafrost. The frozen ground traps potent greenhouse gases like methane.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems - 4 year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems invites high-quality applications for up to 9 fully funded 4-year PhDs at Newcastle University and University of Nottingham.
