  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flow
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Multi-Fluids Discontinuous Control Volume – Finite Element Methods(CVFEM) for Subsurface Geothermal Flows
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Immiscible displacement flows have been widely studied in contaminant dispersion in the subsurface (e.g., solute transport to aquifers, radionuclide’s diffusion in nuclear storage, etc) and oil & gas production (e.g., enhanced oil recovery, heavy oil production, etc) applications.
  Exploiting Innovative Synergies Between Environment, Health, Heritage, Business and Tourism to Improve the Maintenance and Financial Stability of Inland Waterways Infrastructure
  Prof S Chastin, Prof J Lennon, Prof J Harris
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This is a prestigious Scholarship awarded for four years with generous travel and research funds. It is a collaboration between the Centre for Living and Moffat Centre in GLASGOW.
  Development and Evolution of the West Greenland Passive Continental Margin
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Prof J Underhill, Dr R Jamieson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Passive continental margins record the rifting, breakup and thermal subsidence of divergent margins and therefore their study is a key components in developing our understanding of large scale tectonic processes.
  DL-Assisted Interpretation and Upscaling of Petrophysical Properties in Carbonate Rocks
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr Z Jiang, Dr H Lewis
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Resources. SEM/CT images, in-house software tools (pore network model, Lattice-Boltzmann method, Tensorflow/ PyTorch/ Scikit-learn libraries).
  Fast Algorithms for Cluster Dynamics in Multi-phase Flow Pore-networks
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr R van Dijke
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Recent 3D micro-CT visualisations of two-phase flow in porous media have revealed and confirmed pore-scale displacement mechanisms, such as trapped ganglion movement, as well as sudden interface advance (Haines jumps) and retraction (Berg et al., 2013; Reynolds et al., 2017.).
