  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.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Nuclear Energy Futures

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for four-year fully-funded PhD studentships starting in October 2019 at either Imperial College London, University of Cambridge, University of Bristol, The Open University or Bangor University.
  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.
  Controls on the distribution and chemistry of pyrophyllite-quartz alteration in high sulphidation epithermal ore deposits: developing vectoring and fertility tools for project assessment
  Dr J Wilkinson, Dr A Wurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a talented and highly motivated PhD candidate for an exciting and novel project fully-funded by Barrick Gold Corp.
  Multidisciplinary PhD Programme (3.5 years) Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multidisciplinary PhD Programme (3.5 years). Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies. The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies at the University of Bath is now accepting applications for the October 2019 intake.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Atmospheric dispersion of greenhouse gases using novel tracers - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof S O'Doherty, Dr M Rigby, Prof P Simmonds
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Emissions of greenhouse gases are now widely recognised as a potential threat to the long-term stability of the Earth’s climate.
  Can Glacial Flour Stimulate N Cycling in Croplands? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Glacial flour produced from the erosive force of glaciers contains a multitude of minerals that if applied to cropland soils it could chemically weather in situ, potentially increasing soil fertility and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
  Extreme Events in the Anthropocene Ocean - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr O Andrews
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the Project. There is growing recognition that, in the ocean just as on land, climate change might stack the deck in favour of more intense and longer lasting extreme events.
