Offshore Wind Energy Sustainability and Resilience

Apply now for a Funded PhD Studentship at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy Sustainability and Resilience

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy Sustainability and Resilience supports exceptional graduates into exciting research projects that aid the sustainable growth of the offshore wind industry.

Join a growing industry

The UK is committed to the use of offshore wind energy to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The Offshore Wind CDT enables delivery of this target by developing environmental and engineering solutions to key offshore wind sector challenges, supporting a sustainable future.

Supportive research environment

The Offshore Wind CDT is led by the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull with partner universities Durham, Loughborough and Sheffield. It integrates the core strengths of each institution in environment, engineering, economics and energy, providing training. The successful applicant to our co-funded project with EDF, will also benefit from the support of industry-based supervisors.

Impactful research with strong industry links

Your research could make a real impact to the environmental and engineering challenges facing the offshore wind industry. The Studentship is co-hosted by EDF and the CDT works closely with over 40 international industry partners. We seek high quality, innovative people whose backgrounds, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team and the offshore wind sector.
