  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.
  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  Molecular Understanding of the role of Surface Functionality on the properties of cellulose films and surfaces
  Prof Steve Parker, Prof J L Scott
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath has launched a joint PhD programme with Monash University, Australia.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.
  Dr M Jones, Dr G Hunter, Dr M Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren, Prof J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  ONE Planet DTP - A new 3D hydrogeological dataset for the UK to drive projections of hydrological extremes under climate change (OP20296)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physically based (PB) hydrological models are essential for flood and water resources management under changing climate and land use patterns.
  ONE Planet DTP - Coastal geohazard analyses and decision making tools for asset management (Ref: OP20240)
  Dr M Lim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Significant investment (~£50m in the UK) is made into mitigating the risks posed by coastal geohazards to buildings, infrastructure, utilities and ecosystems.
  ONE Planet DTP - Impact of Arctic tundra snowpack insulation on soil temperatures and carbon fluxes (Ref: OP202013)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Arctic tundra, snowpacks play a critical role in mediating energy exchanges and carbon fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere.
  SALine INtrusion in coastal Aquifers (SALINA): Hydrodynamic Assessment and Prediction of Dynamic Response
  Dr G A Hamill
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently 53% of people live on the 10% of the earth’s surface that is within 200km of the coast. Meeting the needs of coastal communities forms one of the major challenges facing society in the 21st Century and in particular an engineering solution is needed to the provide sustainable fresh water supplies.
