ETP’s Energy Industry Doctorate programme has approved over 130 high quality PhD studentships, all with strong company engagement. 6 studentships are available to start before the end of March 2018.
The programme includes our key energy research areas including wind; marine; solar; bio-energy; energy conversion and storage; grid and networks; energy use in buildings; carbon capture and storage; oil and gas; energy systens; heat energy; as well as cross-cutting economics, environment, policy and law issues. Proposals on a low carbon energy technology not included above are considered on a case by case basis. Consideration will be given specifically to collaborative research activity relevant to realising the technologies, systems and services implied in the Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy.
The programme requires industry (or equivalent) partners who will help to define new projects relevant to their business aims and be prepared to make a financial contribution.
Participation in the programme provides a cost-effective means of supporting high quality, applied R&D that is directly relevant to industrial development challenges.
