  Efficient discrete-element modelling of flexible elongated particles
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particulate materials are ubiquitous in nature and in industry (e.g. sand, sugar, corn, ore pellets) and are fundamental to many industrial fields (e.g.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Foam improved oil recovery
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure.
  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.
  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
  Better discrete-element simulations through detailed finite-element contact modelling
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is increasingly used in industry and academia, to simulate particulate materials. DEM models individual particles, and thus requires efficient yet realistic calculation of inter-particle forces through an appropriate contact law.
  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Lethbridge – School of Graduate Studies. Located where the Rocky Mountains meet Alberta's Prairies, the University of Lethbridge is one of Canada's leading universities and research institutions.
  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.
  CONTROL OF CAPILLARY TRAPPING BY VIBRATIONS
  Research Group: Energy Technologies
  Dr A Vorobev
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr A. Vorobev. Project description.
  Pulsed fluid pumping for remediation of leakage from geological storage
  Dr J Roberts, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 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.
  PhD opportunity: fluid-driven soil erosion
  Dr J Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research project centred around fluid-driven soil erosion. Based in Sydney Centre in Geomechanics and Mining Materials (SciGEM). PhD stipend of $35,000 per year available for 3 years.
