  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.
  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.
  KESS2 PhD Scholarship: Research into Microbially Enhanced Mine Water Geothermal Energy
  Dr A Mitchell
Application Deadline: 23 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low enthalpy geothermal heat recovery and storage in abandoned flooded coal mines is an area of increasing interest as we move towards decarbonised heating and energy systems in both domestic and industrial settings.
  PhD Scholarship in thermochemical energy storage materials for concentrating solar thermal power
  Dr M Paskevicius
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This Research-only PhD is directed towards developing high temperature materials that store thermochemical energy for large-scale solar thermal plants so they can operate 24/7.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Radionuclides in soils in urban regions.
  Prof G Gillmore, Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD concerns the collection, analysis and health impact assessment of soil geochemical data in order to.
  North Tyne Crayfish Investigation.
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/.
  Modern use of gypsum as inorganic binder for constructions (Advert Reference: SF18/ABE/PESCE)
  Dr G Pesce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gypsum-based mortars for outdoor coating were widely used in the past centuries in a number of European countries such as Italy, Spain, Portugal and France.
  Methane emissions from wetland trees
  Prof S Johnston, Assoc Prof D Maher
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wetlands are among earth’s most efficient ecosystems for carbon sequestration, yet this capacity can be offset by emission of methane.
