Dear Sir/Madam, Goodmorning!
Thank you for your question
Geology is very good course and having promising future in coming days. Lot of opportunities are opened up in many areas nowadays. Regarding your question about your Ph.D, Indian IIT s (IIT, Bombay, Kanpur, Kharagpur etc) offering Ph.D course. For admission to these you have to appear for GATE. In addition to IIT s, many Indian Universities including IISC, offering Ph.D either directly or by simple entrance test.
Regarding admission of Ph.D in to foreign Universities, Australia, USA (Princeton University, Okalohama etc), and German (Ruhr University) Universities offering Ph.D degrees. But to complete Ph.D course in Foreign countries it will take much time and pure dedication.
Regarding Faculty, After getting score in GATE, You can approach any Guide in Geology at your choice, provided some vacancy is there with him.
In foreign Universities, Only University will provide you the guide.
Applications of Geology i.e petroleum Geology, Engineering Geology, Rock Mechanics, Geotechnical Engineering are good fields you can choose.
with regards and hoping for the best.
