  Deposition prevention for future power stations – an international collaboration with USA
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concern over the environment impact of burning fossil fuels for power generation and fluctuations in the fuel price have led to the power plants increasingly using variable fuels and biomass.
  Developing advanced models for future power generation technologies
  Prof M Pourkashanian, Prof L Ma
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a competitive fully funded PhD Studentship starting in 2019. The studentship will support a highly motivated researcher to undertake cutting edge research on developing advanced models that are relevant to future energy and power generation technologies.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Machining Science (IDC in Machining Science)

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC) in Machining Science is a unique collaboration between industry, the University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and the Faculty of Engineering.
  Next Generation Aero-Engine Sealing Technologies
  Dr M Marshall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Are you interested in pushing the boundaries of metal additive manufacturing? We have an exciting PhD opportunity within the MAPP Future Manufacturing Hub to develop the next generation of laser based additive manufacturing systems.
  Power Generation in rural communities
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

For electrification projects to be successful, they must be suitable for the needs of the communities using them.
  Virtual reality energy system simulation for future zero mission power generation
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the steady increase in the penetrations of wind and other renewable energy to the power generation mix, conventional power generations are required to operate with more flexibility, wider fuel date and substantially lower emission.
  Wheel/Rail Interface Tribology PhD - ’Influence of Microstructural Properties on wheel and Rail Wear and Damage’
  Prof R Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is funded by the Virtual Vehicle Research Center in Graz, Austria and will involve close collaboration with another PhD student based there.
  Zero emissions power plants through combustion optimisation
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The combustion of fossil fuels for power generation will remain to play a significant role to meet the increasing energy demand in the foreseeable future.
