  Improving the aerodynamic performance of offshore wind turbines.
  Prof S Hogg, Dr G Ingram
Applications accepted all year round
Fully-Funded Doctoral Studentship in improving the aerodynamic performance of offshore wind turbines. Supervisors. Prof Simon Hogg & Dr Grant Ingram.
  Mechanics of lightweight inter-array cables for offshore renewable installations
  Prof C Augarde, Dr W Coombs
Applications accepted all year round
Fully-Funded Doctoral Studentship in Offshore Wind Energy related to Geotechnical Engineering. Supervisors. Prof. Charles Augarde and Dr Will Coombs.
  Robust power converter design and analysis
  Dr C Crabtree, Dr P Matthews
Applications accepted all year round
Fully-Funded Doctoral Studentship in Offshore Wind Energy Power Converters and Reliability. Department of Engineering, Durham University.
  Hybrid devices comprising of solar panels and structural energy storage
  Dr N Shirshova
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Interest in renewable energy as a research subject, despite significant number of publication, does not show any indication of decline.
  Ferroelectric solar cells for Terra Watt electricity generation
  Dr B Mendis
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Electricity generation on a large Terra Watt scale requires solar cells that consist of abundant, non-toxic and cheap materials. Materials selection has been inspired by geological minerals, such as Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) and Sb2Se3.
  Understanding ion mobility mechanisms in solid electrolytes
  Dr K Johnston
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
The rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is now considered the technology of choice for energy storage in a wide array of portable electronic devices.
  Low-Dimensional Hybrid Materials for Energy Storage Technologies
  Dr M Hunt
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
An important obstacle to adoption of clean energy technologies is energy storage. Green generation from wind and solar may be intermittent and peak demand can coincide with reduced output.
  Solid State Transformers for Distributed Micro Generation
  Dr A Horsfall
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Reliable, flexible grid connection of renewable energy sources is a key enabling technology. The development of small, inexpensive, highly efficient power converters will enable new topologies in smartgrids that will offer higher levels of resilience at a distribution grid level.
  Enabling the rational design of Tandem OPVs with efficiencies >20%
  Dr C Groves
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Organic Photovoltaic diodes (OPVs) have been the subject of intense research for more than 20 years due to the possibility of cheap, scalable manufacture of a renewable energy source which is well-suited to small-scale generation.
