  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.
  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.
  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.
  Waterloo Uncovered: Using large-scale geophysical survey to investigate the world’s most famous battlefield
  Dr S Eve
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.
  Characterisation of human respiratory exposure to automotive particulate matter emissions
  Dr S Aleksandrova
Application Deadline: 11 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Increasing urbanisation of developing countries means that most communities suffer from air pollution.
  Impact of Soil Hydrophobicity on Flooding and Erosion Hazards
  Dr R Holtzman
Application Deadline: 11 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Water repellency (hydrophobicity) is widespread in natural and agricultural soils.
  Swirling flows for air and water filtration
  Dr S Aleksandrova
Application Deadline: 11 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Swirling flows are commonly present in flow separation devices used for air and water filtration (e.g.
  GeoNetZero CDT

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) entitled GeoNetZero is a new program of PhD research and training created to address key areas in Geoscience and its role in the Low Carbon Energy Transition and Challenge of Net Zero.
  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.
  Dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere and aurora
  Dr S Badman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are entering a new era of understanding of giant planet environments thanks to the Juno mission at Jupiter, and concurrent Hubble Space Telescope images of Jupiter’s UV aurora.
  Arctic-sourced mineral dust fluxes: quantification, drivers and impacts

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.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2020/21

Funding Type

PhD Type

The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
