Project Description

About the project

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to research on energy transducer for rail track power harvesting. The project aim to develop bespoke and deployable energy transducers for rail track energy harvesting.

As PhD candidate you will have the unique opportunity to develop piezoelectric and electromagnetic energy transducers that will be used for large geographical rail track monitoring. The aim is no need for mains power or batteries for energy supply of the monitoring system.

The project will involve design, modelling, implementation, and experimental lab and industrial field activities to validate the new designs. You will have an exciting opportunity to work with the University of Exeter’s world-leading energy harvesting research team and collaborate with Network Rail in the UK.

Funding Notes

The studentship, funded by the University of Exeter, is available to Home, EU and overseas students for 3.5 years. The studentship is fully funded for Home/EU/international students with the UKRI equivalent stipend of at least £15,009 p.a (tax free) and University fees for the full Home/EU rate or for the full international rate.The student will be based in Harrison Building in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
