  Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they have to move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opportunity to pursue a PhD in solid-state materials chemistry. The project will involve the synthesis of novel nano-scale materials for applications in thermoelectric energy harvesting.
  NEW THERMOELECTRIC MATERIALS FOR WASTE HEAT ENERGY RECOVERY
  Dr P Vaqueiro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of functional inorganic materials. The project concerns the discovery of new thermoelectric materials, which can be used in devices for the direct conversion of heat into electrical power.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
  Control of Smart Grid Systems to Address the Energy Trilemma
  Dr B Potter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ensuring a secure and affordable supply of electrical energy, whilst also reducing emissions, is a key challenge faced by governments all over the world.
  Flexibility in Energy Demand - the role of technology
  Dr S Smith, Prof J Torriti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Change in electricity generation sources and increasing energy demand are bringing into question the ability of existing energy distribution networks to cope with greater variation in supply by network management measures.
  Low energy domestic buildings: the impact of mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) systems
  Assoc Prof E A Essah, Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date the majority of studies using low energy buildings for experimental measurements have looked at the buildings energy conservation and the reduction of energy use.
  Machine learning for healthy building design
  Dr Z Luo, Dr Z Shu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The 2003 heatwave caused over 2000 heat-related deaths in the UK and more than 30,000 across Europe. With climate change, heatwaves are becoming more intense, frequent and longer duration in the UK.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
