The new EPSRC CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) brings together established energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL together with the MaREI Research Centre (MaREI) (Ireland).
We provide a unique opportunity to work with leading researchers on projects integrated with industry and a comprehensive skills and development programme, including interdisciplinary courses and skills training.
You will undertake your PhD at either Loughborough, UCL or MaREI in one of three themes:
Applications to UCL and Loughborough are invited from UK graduates with a good first degree (1st or 2:1) in one of the following areas: physics, mathematics, engineering, chemistry, natural sciences, materials science, data analytics, computer science, statistics, psychology, social science, architecture or other building and energy-related disciplines.
Limited funding is available for EU and overseas students with these or equivalent qualifications, and they are also encouraged to apply. Applicants with other relevant qualifications or extensive relevant industry experience who can show evidence of a scientific and engineering research capability may also apply.
Loughborough and UCL are offering a number of fully funded studentships for entry into the 2019/2020 academic year.
If eligible, you will receive a stipend which is tax free, plus UK/EU fees for four years (conditions apply). The stipend for UCL and Loughborough University will be approx. £17,009 (exact amounts to be confirmed).
We also accept applications from students who wish to self-fund, are in receipt of an independent scholarships or who are fully industry-funded; this must be indicated clearly on your application.
