  Re-evaluation of the Volcanic, Sedimentological and Structural nature of the Scott/Telford Fields within the Central North Sea:A route to extended field life?
  Dr N Schofield, Prof D Jolley, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The North Sea has provided a highly important resource to the UK and its economy for over the last 50 years. With the basin in overall production decline, it is important to examine ways of prolonging and extended the life of this now mature basin.
  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.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Constraining mantle dynamics with seismic data
  Prof J H Davies, Dr J Wookey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. Dynamics, Mantle, Convection, Circulation, Seismology, Mineralogy. Project Background. Earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains result from the dynamic Earth, driven by mantle convection.
  Early evolution of the Palaeogene Mull volcano: An integrated volcanological, geochemical and geochronological approach
  Dr A Kerr, Dr D Brown, Dr I McDonald, Dr H Hughes
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. volcanology; igneous geochemistry; geochronology. Project Background.
  Novel window into old crust: How did Earth’s continents form?
  Dr M A Millet, Dr O Nebel, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. Continent formation, Magmatic processes, Petrology, isotope, geochemistry, fieldwork. Project Background. The formation of Earth’s continents during the Archean eon is one of the major transformation that our planet has experienced throughout its history.
  Pliocene sea level constraints for future sea level rise
  Dr C H Lear, Dr E Gasson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keyword. Climate Science. Project Background. Retreat of the Antarctic Ice Sheet due to polar warming remains the largest source of uncertainty for future sea level projections, hampering planning efforts and mitigation of sea level rise.
  Reconstructing the plumbing systems of mid-ocean ridge volcanoes: olivine vs plagioclase-hosted melt inclusions
  Dr C J Lissenberg, Prof K Cashman, Prof C MacLeod
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. petrology, melt inclusion, mid-ocean ridge. Project Background. Interconnected magma reservoirs are the key driver of the dynamics of volcanic systems around the world.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project keywords. magma chamber, mid-ocean ridge, crystal mush, deformation, igneous processes, petrology, geochemistry, ophiolites.
