About the Project

Clean Growth UK is a national business-innovation network hosted by three universities with applied research expertise across clean growth sectors. The Universities of Brighton and Liverpool John Moores have come together to establish a twin PhD programme to address the urgent issue of decarbonisation of shipping with a first cohort of one PhD being carried out simultaneously at each institution. The two PhDs will focus on different technical topics but will have the overarching theme of greening the shipping industry. The PhD student will have the opportunity to interface with the PhD subject undertaken at the other university thus widening the scope of the research and increasing knowledge transfer opportunities via a facilitated Green Shipping Knowledge Exchange programme. It is expected that industry partners will also be involved in the twin PhD research programme, also providing the opportunity for interaction with businesses leading this agenda.

The fully funded PhD candidate will work as a member of the Liverpool Logistics, Offshore and Marine Research Institute (LOOM) within the Faculty of Engineering and Technology at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). The LOOM has been actively engaged in niche and unique research in marine, offshore, and transport studies for more than 20 years. LOOM focuses on two main research areas: i) Design, manufacturing, and operation of large maritime engineering systems, and ii) Logistics optimisation modelling (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/faculty-of-engineering-and-technology-research-institute/loom). LOOM has strong connections with several government and industrial organisations in the UK.

The studentship is available for UK/EU applicants, on any or a combination of the following research areas:

1. Green shipping.
2. Life cycle assessment and environmental protection in marine operations.
3. Marine systems design based on remanufacturing.
4. Renewable energy and/or waste management in shipping.

Applicants should have a minimum 2:1 degree or Master’s degree in a related subject, and committed to study a full time PhD. If you are interested in applying and have any questions about the suitability of your degree and experience, please feel free to contact us.

Official applications should be made via LJMU’s online application process using the following link: https://uaf.ljmu.ac.uk/.
