  PhD in Engineering: Improving Heat Transfer Performance through Advanced Simulation Methods
  Dr M Vezza
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Engineering of the University of Glasgow is seeking a highly motivated graduate to undertake an exciting 3.5-year PhD project entitled “Improving Heat Transfer Performance through Advanced Simulation Methods” within the Aerospace Sciences Research Division.
  Valorisation of biomass waste for sustainable production of fuel and chemicals
  Dr J Li, Dr L Lue
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global biomass waste production has significantly increased over the years. It is recognised that the development of alternative, cleaner sources of fuels and chemicals from biomass waste can secure energy sources and address environmental concerns.
  Well integrity under hydraulic pulses
  Dr S Yang, Prof Z Shipton
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will examine the integrity of the well casing and cement containment under conditions of pulsed flow within the well. Under pulsed stimulation, it is possible that wells might deteriorate faster than in conventional working conditions.
  Data-driven micro-seismic signal analysis
  Dr S Pytharouli, Dr V Stankovic
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this PhD is to develop a method for optimal acoustic and microseismic sensor placement for accurately detecting microseismic activity.
  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  Optimising organic feedstock properties for thermal applications
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic wastes are valuable for energy, nutrients and fuels; however, in many parts of the world, these materials remain an “untapped resource” ― treated as waste.
  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  Geophysical assessment of Lime/Clay grout injection of estuary and reservoir embankments subject to badgers burrows erosion
  Dr P Sentenac
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to studies, 46 % of dams and embankments failures are due to severe internal erosion (Foster et al., 2000). Animal burrowing can lead to a preferential path for the water flow and seepage through the flood embankments that could lead to a partial or total collapse of the structure.
  Improved Water Treatment via Densification of Flocs
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water, whether it is required for domestic consumption, for industry or for agriculture, is essential for life. Increasingly however many parts of the world are facing issues of water stress and/or water scarcity.
