PhD Research Positions - Energy and Environment
University of Strathclyde, Scotland

Scholarship / Financial aid: Two fully funded PhD studentships available

Date: one year

Deadline: N/A

Open to: candidates with a background in engineering, science or related disciplines

Announcement follows

The mitigation of climate change effects necessitates a major transition towards an energy system that can provide energy services through low carbon technologies and processes. The recent award of a 4 year GBP 2.1M grant through an EPSRC/e.on UK strategic partnership to the Universities of Bath, Loughborough, Strathclyde, Surrey, East Anglia, Leeds, Imperial College and the Policy Studies Institute will focus on researching the nature and drivers that will facilitate this transition.

Two fully funded PhD studentships are immediately available at the University of Strathclyde as part of this grant. These posts will involve integrated modelling and simulation of the UK energy sector to explore and investigate transition pathways in realising a low carbon future with particular focus on network infrastructure. The research work will include development of national scale energy resource flow models for bulk and distance energy transportation, and analysis of the energy system infrastructure at multiple transition staging points. This research activity will support the development of feasible, low carbon energy enabling infrastructures for the UK.

This project offers an excellent opportunity for successful applicants to address fundamental challenges faced by the UK energy sector and influence their solution. The successful candidates will engage in high-priority research in the power and energy sector, and develop the necessary skills for a career in this area.

Research Candidates
High calibre candidates are sought with a background in engineering, science or related disciplines and a desire to contribute to cutting-edge developments in the areas outlined above. Candidates should possess a good first degree (1st or 2:1) or equivalent, excellent communication and team-working skills and a high level of initiative. Experience of modelling large scale physical systems would also be advantageous. The student will receive a (non-taxable) stipend of 12,940 per annum for up to 36 months.

Further information can be found at
Informal enquiries on the project can be made to Dr Stuart Galloway ( ) at the University of Strathclyde.

To apply, please email your CV, which should include the contact details of at least two academic referees, directly to Dr Galloway.
