groundwater PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 11 groundwater PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Modelling groundwater flow in a quarried limestone catchment: Dove Holes, Derbyshire, UK

Highlights. ·      Opportunity to combine practical field hydrogeology with numerical modelling;. ·      Develop scenarios for water movement through a quarried catchment to assess the implications of changing climate and local variations in stratigraphy. Read more

Elucidating Steel Corrosion Rates in High-salinity Groundwater - A Multi-technique Approach

This exciting CDT/PhD project is centred on elucidating the corrosion rate of steel and stainless steel when exposure to high-salinity groundwater environments, relevant to deep geological disposal conditions. Read more

Fully-funded PhD Studentship in Automated Beta-emitting Radioisotope Identification and Monitoring in Boreholes

Proposed here is the development of an automated detection and fingerprinting method using machine learning and spectra unfolding techniques for the real-time, in-situ monitoring and determination of weak beta-emitting radionuclides found in groundwater around nuclear sites without the need for sampling. Read more

Impact of grain roughness on porous media flows under conditions relevant to the subsurface

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Hydrological controls on the Vaiont landslide

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event. Read more

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Native tree reinforcement of slope stability during establishment at the A83 Rest and Be Thankful

This 4-year project, funded through Forest Research, aims to evaluate mechanical and hydrological mechanisms of slope stabilisation during the ongoing establishment of native tree species at A83 Rest and Be Thankful, an area prone to extensive and disruptive debris flows that are widely reported in the media. Read more

Enhancing mixing and reaction in porous media with viscoelastic instabilities

Many industrial processes involve the mixing and reaction of non-Newtonian fluids in complex geometrical configurations. Often in such settings, the geometric confinement or high fluid viscosities suppresses inertial turbulence, and the mixing it promotes. Read more

New methods for removal of pollutants from water

Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
