Deadline: 31st August 2018
ETP’s Energy Industry Doctorate programme has awarded over 100 high quality PhD studentships, all with strong company engagement.
6 studentships are available to start before the end of March 2019.
This programme is addressing the strategic demands of industry and government for ‘industry-ready’, post-doctoral researchers to enhance energy industry innovation and knowledge exchange effectiveness. A defining characteristic of the programme is strong industry engagement where companies are co-investors, support project specification and engage with the research directly.
Project proposals are sought from ETP member universities, for projects that support the themes of the Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy. These can include technological, numerical, environmental, legislative, economic, and policy aspects.
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.
Guidance notes and an application form can be downloaded from the box to the right.
The deadline for receipt of applications for the next evaluation is August 31st 2018.
