The architecture and fluid flow properties of shallow fault systems: implications for environmental monitoring

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline

  • Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This is an exciting opportunity to engage in international research to reduce risks of geological engineering such as Carbon Capture and Storage and to inform environmental monitoring. The PhD will explore fault zone heterogeneities and the effect on fluid flow (particularly groundwater, CO2, or reservoir brines) in the shallow crust through the study of unique data from two contrasting faults in Australia, and relevant analogues. The research will improve modeling of fluid flow in and around fault zones.

Funding Notes

Home Fees and UKRC level stipend. Essential: Minimum of an upper second class BSc Honours degree in subjects relevant to Physical Sciences. Desirable: Experience or skills development relevant to geoscience. The ideal candidate should have a desire to work in an interdisciplinary, applications-focused field of recognised international importance in geoscience. They will be a practical self-motivated person who will lead the development and direction of their project. They should have some programming experience in analytical languages such as MATLAB or R. Candidates with some prior research and/or work experience in the geological/structural/hydrological/modelling sciences will be given priority.
