  Correlation, Provenance and Reservoir Quality of Triassic Strata in the Central North Sea
  Prof A Hartley, Prof D Jolley, Prof J Howell
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triassic fluvial successions form important primary and secondary reservoirs in the Central North Sea (CNS) and contain significant future exploration potential.
  Reservoir modelling of Triassic fluvial strata in the Central North Sea
  Prof J Howell, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triassic fluvial successions form important primary and secondary reservoirs in the Central North Sea (CNS) and contain significant future exploration potential.
  Combine Digital Rock Technology and AI to Identify Remaining Hydrocarbon potential
  Dr K Wu, Dr A Starkey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in multiscale digital rock technology have made it possible to quantify the spatial distribution of wettability and model the heterogeneous 3D microstructures of reservoir rocks at large scale.
  The impacts of heterogeneity of reservoir rock property on the multiphase flow and oil recovery from pore scale to reservoir scale
  Dr K Wu, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the subsurface materials, such as reservoir rocks, soils and other porous media are highly heterogeneous with a wide range of length scales.
  Evaluating the effectiveness of rangeland resting initiatives in communal grazing systems in South Africa
  Dr J Bennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, most rangeland systems in communal areas of South Africa are subject to limited collective management and tend to be continuously grazed as a result (Palmer and Bennett 2013).
  Geological and geomorphological characterisation of West Cumbria
  Dr J Lawrence
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Description. One PhD scholarship funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is open for applications at Imperial College London.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  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.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
