  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.
  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.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
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.
  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.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, 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.
