Geoscience PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

We have 29 Geoscience PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

PhD Project: Could in service life concrete carbonation lead to negative emissions?

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
Concrete is a fundamental building material essential to economic development and a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions during its production. Read more

PhD project: Hydrogen and carbon dioxide storage and transport for net-zero industrial clusters

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
This project focuses on establishing reliable, cost-effective, large hydrogen or carbon dioxide storage and distribution hubs. In collaboration with industrial partners, we aim to identify and reduce the hurdles for geological storage of hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Read more

Undercover Mineralisation – Identifying mineral enrichments beneath glacial deposits in northeast Scotland utilising machine learning

The University of Aberdeen is an internationally recognised centre for excellence for research addressing the global challenges of energy transition, environment and biodiversity, social inclusion and cultural diversity, health, nutrition and wellbeing, and data and artificial intelligence.

Development of a Wireless Sensor for Measuring Water Storage in Glaciers

PROJECT OVERVIEW. An exciting opportunity to develop a new instrument to study water storage in glaciers. You should have either a background in engineering or environmental science, but with a keen enthusiasm to design, build and field-test an instrument that will need to work in a harsh environment. Read more

Studying Glacier Hydrology using new Wireless Instruments

PROJECT BACKGROUND. Are you keen to pursue a research career in glaciology? We have a rare opportunity for a fully-funded studentship with flexibility to define your own research project. Read more

Evaluation of the Holocene Azorean tephra dispersal into Europe and its links with atmospheric circulation patterns in the North Atlantic

Explosive volcanic eruptions produce ash clouds that affect large areas of land, ocean, and airspace. Atmospheric circulation patterns play a key role in the dispersal pattern of the volcanic ash as it depends on both wind directions and speed. Read more
