  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Automated 3D Data Analysis using Artificial Intelligence - (studied by Distance Learning)
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oil & gas sector and health sector has massive data sets in the form of seismic data and the health sector in MRI data that it needs to analyse in order to identify the location of hydrocarbons and also to assess the risk for drilling operations in a particular area, or to diagnose underlying health conditions.
  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.
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr A Helden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG) - https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Numerical simulation of water repellent soils
  Prof P Cleall, Prof A D Jefferson
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3 Years October 2020. This industrially supported project will focus on representing the processes related to, and assessing the impact of, hydrophobicity on soil behaviour via the development of novel models and their solution utilising established numerical techniques.
  Smart Energy Infrastructure for Future Power Networks PhD
  Dr X Zhang, Prof W Guo
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship to cover tuition fees* plus stipend of £18,000 per year for three years, to be undertaken in the Centre of Energy Systems and Strategy at Cranfield University, in the field of power and energy systems.
  Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.
  Dr M Jones, Dr G Hunter, Dr M Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
  Tomographic imaging for geophysics and medical physics
  Dr L Lok, Prof C Paoloni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tomography is an imaging modality that is widely exploited across the electromagnetic spectrum in diverse fields such as geophysics and biomedical engineering.
  Arctic-sourced mineral dust fluxes: quantification, drivers and impacts
  Prof J E Bullard, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. CENTA20-LU3. Start date. 1 October 2020. Closing date. 10 January 2020. Interview date. Week beginning 3 February 2020.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems - 4 year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

University of Nottingham and Newcastle University, supported by Ordnance Survey, invites high-quality applications from UK and EU nationals for three fully funded 4-year (1+3) PhDs in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems for September 2020 entry.
