  Triassic Sedimentology, Stratigraphy and Basin Development in the Ula Field Area, Norway - Aker BP
  Prof A Hartley, Prof D Jolley
Application Deadline: 29 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triassic strata remain a potentially untapped resource in the Ula Field and surrounding areas of the Norwegian sector. To date only limited sedimentological and stratigraphic information are available for the Triassic strata in this area.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  Carbon footprint of novel uses of organic wastes for sustainable production of chemicals and materials
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 23 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent global need to develop new and innovative strategies for the sustainable production of chemicals and materials using renewable feedstocks and renewable energy.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 4 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Unravelling the Joint Evolution of Dispersal and Mating Behaviours in Spatially-Structured Populations Using Experimental Evolution
  Dr G Bocedi, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 25 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use experimental evolution on the seed beetle model species, Callosobruchus maculatus, to study the joint eco-evolutionary dynamics of dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 23 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  Efficient upgrading of biogas via plasma catalysis
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Application Deadline: 23 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  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.
  Heat pump assisted distillation for the energy efficient separation of the liquid phase products from anaerobic digestion
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr A Majumder
Application Deadline: 23 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a wider research programme into biological routes for the synthesis of chemical products. A key element of this approach is the separation of the chemical products from the aqueous broths produced by the bioreactors/anaerobic digestors, which is commonly achieved via distillation.
  Hybrid Catalytic Systems for Sustainable Chemical Processing
  Dr X Wang, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 23 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysis plays a critical role in modern society, where 90% of all chemical processes involve heterogeneous catalysts. Nevertheless, heterogeneous and biological catalysis is still considered as one of the top 24 challenges in chemistry when asking “what’s next”.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
