EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Carbon Capture and Storage, and Cleaner Fossil Energy

Led by The University of Nottingham in collaboration with Loughborough University, the University of Sheffield, the University of Birmingham and the British Geological Survey

This Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC) involves over 50 recognised academics to provide comprehensive supervision for up to 65 doctoral students. It provides an innovative training programme co-created with our Industrial Partners to provide its students with the advanced skill-sets that they require to help reshape the design and operation of energy-intensive technologies during times of rapid change and transformation.

Engineering Doctorate Studentships

Engineering Doctorate Studentships

Up to 20 four-year Engineering Doctorate (EngD) postgraduate studentships will start October 2017 Applicants will need either a first class or upper second class honours degree in relevant subjects to include Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials. Physics, Geology and Maths.

The EngD training provides:
  • An in-depth four-year training programme
  • For those who satisfy the UK residency requirements, a non-taxed stipend of up to £18,000p.a.
  • For EU and International students, - Home/EU fees and basic stipend
  • Approximately three years' extensive research time in close collaboration with industry
  • International travel budget

Industrial Involvement

The Centre is designed to be industrially focussed. We aim to ensure that all of the projects we undertake are targeted at meeting specific current and future needs of our partners. We work with numerous companies which cover a broad range of energy-intensive industries. Researchers will spend time working closely with one or more industrial sponsors, pursuing a research project based at one of our industrial supporters, or in a university environment with a close relationship with industry:

The Centre has excellent relationships with more than twenty industrial partners Projects will match both the interests of the researcher and industry.

Engineering Doctorate Studentships

Projects currently available for October 2017 start

We invite candidates to apply for doctorates in technology innovation in the following areas:

Successful candidates will work with academics and industry partner(s) to shape the exact scope of each doctorate.

  • Production, treatment and use of clean non-conventional gas resources
  • CO2 capture and utilisation in the manufacture of products.
  • CO2 capture and storage to abate fossil fuel emissions
  • Development and optimisation of hybrid renewables/fossil fuel energy systems
  • Adaptation of major energy-using processes to meet new environmental or market requirements
  • Adaptation of energy-intensive industrial processes to use new (low-carbon) fuels or manufacture new products
  • Integrating energy storage into fossil fuel plants to increase flexibility or improve economics
  • Development of geological storage options for CO2, natural gas and H2 – and similar gases of interest to the energy sector.
  • Next-generation technologies for distributed power generation (or combined heat and power) based on combustion or gasification of solid and gaseous fuels

In addition to a broad range of potential projects which the Centre already has under development, candidates are welcome to approach the Centre with their own ideas for research projects, provided they are consistent with the concepts outlined above.
