  Modelling uncertainties in fracture models: From micro to field scale
  Dr J Roberts
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fracture data are used to populate geological models which can inform decision making on reservoir properties, rock strength, seal integrity, and anticipated fluid flow.
  Characterisation of background seismicity in the UK: putting induced seismicity into perspective
  Dr S Pytharouli, Prof R Lunn
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK has committed to a net zero carbon emission target for 2050. With industry being one of the largest emitters and heating being the most challenging area to decarbonise, technologies such as CO2 capture & storage and geothermal energy will play a crucial role in the transition to a low carbon economy.
  Carbon geological storage: understanding micro-mechanisms of CO2 capillary breakthrough and localized pathways to assess caprock CO2 leakage hazard
  Dr M Pedrotti, Prof A Tarantino
Application Deadline: 21 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of Carbon Capture and Storage will occur at global scale, and considering the amount of CO2 that will be captured and stored underground, long-term leakage of CO2 into the atmosphere is one of the most crucial concerns for CO2 repositories.
  Understanding Hydrate Formation in Porous Rock for Enhanced Geothermal Systems Applications
  Dr A Hamilton, Dr K Johnston
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An enhanced geothermal system (EGS) is a renewable energy technology that extracts energy from a naturally occurring heat source.
  Exploiting thermally and microbially induced carbonate precipitation to improve reservoir storage integrity
  Dr K Dobson, Prof V Phoenix
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use of subsurface storage is a key part of the transition towards a low carbon energy system, allowing for both reduction of existing atmospheric CO2 though carbon capture & storage, and implementation of other low carbon contributions to the energy mix including compressed air energy storage (CAES) and hydrogen storage.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences - Volatiles and Volcanoes on Proto-planets
  Dr LH Hallis, Dr L Daly, Prof M Lee
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Achondrite meteorites are derived from the crustal surfaces of proto-planets that were large enough to have differentiated into a core-mantle-crust during the early solar system.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences - Understanding the lifespan of impact-induced hydrothermal systems from X-ray tomography and numerical modelling
  Dr t Keller, Dr A Macente, Dr A Pickersgill, Prof M Lee
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrothermal systems likely played an essential role in the origin of life, both on Earth and potentially on other planets [1–4].
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences - A data driven multiscale approach for understanding the Solar Systems oldest materials
  Dr L Daly, Dr J Einsle
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ca-Al-rich inclusions, or CAIs for short, are the oldest solar system materials that formed at incredibly high temperatures near the young Sun [1].
  From fines migration to filter cake formation and back again: state-of-the-art in situ observation to understand pore scale processes
  Dr K Dobson
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest 4D (3D + time) imaging methods to capture the porosity networks within the geological samples, and then track flow, and the transport of the suspended fine particles through that pore network.
