No more applications being accepted
Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
We are seeking candidates with an undergraduate degree in materials science and engineering or a related discipline with a strong interest in sustainable functional materials and devices to work on the development of intermediate temperature oxide fuel cells in collaboration with Johnson Matthey PLC. The successful candidate will undertake materials synthesis, structural and microstructural characterisation and electrical characterisation. You will possess the ability to work independently but you will be required to interact with a wider research group as required. If you are passionate about sustainable functional materials and have the essential requirements, we would love to hear from you.
This studentship will pay tuition fees in full and a stipend for living expenses for four years. This stipend will be at the RCUK minimum which for the 2019/20 academic year is £15,009pa. An enhanced stipend could be available for outstanding candidates.
Funding covers home tuition fees and annual maintenance payments of at least the Research Council minimum for eligible UK and EU applicants. EU nationals must have lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the programme to be eligible for a full award (fees and stipend).
