The Centre for Interdisciplinary Sustainable Practices of Research in Energy at the University of Strathclyde invites applications for a fully funded PhD in economics, to study the economics of the transition to a sustainable, zero carbon world.
Prospective applicants should hold:
The Strathclyde Doctoral Training Centre for Interdisciplinary Sustainable Practices of Research in Energy is a cross-faculty collaboration recognising that the transition to a sustainable zero carbon world will require that social scientists and policy analysts studying this issue understand this science and technology, and conversely that scientists understand the social and economic impact of developing these technologies. See https://twitter.com/InspreC/status/1125468659386933248
The project is for the applicant to propose, but should be within the areas of economics of the energy transition and the creation of a zero carbon economy. Two examples that Dr David Comerford would be interested in supervising include:
But potential candidates should feel free to propose a project based on their own interests, and indeed could contact Dr Comerford, in advance of submitting their application, to discuss.
The Strathclyde Doctoral Training Centre in Interdisciplinary Sustainable Energy Research will support this scholarship by arranging a broad training programme in energy and in interdisciplinary best practice across all four of the University of Strathclyde's faculties: Business, Humanities, Science, and Engineering.
The project will be co-supervised by Dr David Comerford, Dept of Economics
plus one of: Dr Anuna Ivaturi, Dept of Chemistry, Dr Matthew Eisler, Dept of History, Dr Stuart Robertson, Dept of Chemistry. If you have any queries, please get in touch by contacting: [email protected] or [email protected]
The studentship covers home/EU fees and a stipend for living costs of circa £15,000 (full time) per annum for the duration of 3.5 years. Please note: international applicants will need to source additional funding to bridge the gap between home/EU and international fees.
