  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.
  Achieving Net-Zero - Hydrogen as a key factor for energy resilience and emission reduction for the UK water sector
  Prof B Jefferson, Dr L Alibardi
Application Deadline: 6 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting fully-funded PhD, with an enhanced stipend of £19,000 per annum and working in collaboration with Scottish Water and Anglian Water, will research the means of developing an evidence-based strategy for the UK water sector to switch towards a hydrogen economy aligned to achieving carbon neutrality.
  Polymer EOR in Carbonate Reservoirs
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Prof K Sorbie
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the oil recovery process, it is common for a significant percentage of oil in place to remain after initial operations. To increase the oil recovery, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes may be applied – which can consist of gas, thermal, chemical or modified salinity methods.
  The synthesis of novel alkaline materials for carbon mineralisation to prevent climate change
  Assoc Prof P Renforth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available at the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions at Heriot-Watt University.
  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.
  NUAcT PhD Studentship in Biological self-healing for Sustainable Building and Smart Heritage Conservation
  Dr M Theodoridou
Application Deadline: 20 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 28 September 2020 for 3 years. Overview. We are pleased to announce a PhD studentship in the world’s first Hub for Biotechnology in the Build Environment.
  Deciphering the Built Environment Microbiome (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SHERRY)
  Dr A Sherry
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact that the construction of new dwellings has on our rural and urban environments is still in its infancy. Understanding this is of the utmost importance as the UK government has pledged to build half a million homes between 2020 and 2022 to meet the demand of a growing population.
  Screening and analytical applications of novel triazine ligands for selective extraction of uranium (Ref: SF20/APP/MA)
  Dr R Ma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Elemental and particularly isotopic analysis of uranium, e.g.
  The indoor home dust biome: characterising and communicating chemical hazards within our home (Ref: SF20/APP/DEAN)
  Prof J Dean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a gap in our understanding of physical, chemical and biological characteristics of household dust, which has direct relevance to human health.
  Coupled flow-geomechanics for prediction of propagation and collapse of wormholes in matrix acidizing
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acidizing is an established technique to stimulate enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.
  Low-field NMR studies to probe motion and dynamics in rock pore structures
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantification of transport and dynamics in rock pore structures is essential for understanding, optimising and enhancing oil and gas recovery as well as assess the capacity and effectiveness for CO2 storage.
