Centre for Doctoral Training
EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems and Structures The Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Strathclyde is looking to recruit and train researchers to PhD level in wind and marine energy United Kingdom | University of Strathclyde Date posted: 07 May 2020 Job type: Research facilities Disciplines: Energy & renewables | Earth & environmental science Developing Future Leaders in Wind and Marine Renewable Energy Engineering A new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Strathclyde will train researchers to PhD level in wind and marine energy. Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), a total of 70 PhD students will be recruited for four years of training and research. These research students will enjoy a comprehensive training programme and an accredited IET/IMechE scheme leading to CEng status. The new CDT joins together two successful EPSRC CDTs, Wind & Marine Energy Systems and Renewable Energy Marine Structures, their industrial partners and strong track records of training more than 130 researchers to date in offshore renewable energy. It is a collaboration between the universities of, Edinburgh, Oxford and Strathclyde, and will create a comprehensive, world-leading centre covering all aspects of wind and marine renewable energy, both above and below the water. It will produce highly skilled industry-ready engineers with multidisciplinary expertise, deep specialist knowledge and a broad understanding of pertinent whole-energy systems. Our graduates will be future leaders in industry and academia world-wide, driving development of the offshore renewable energy sector, helping to deliver the Government’s carbon reduction targets for 2050 and ensuring that the UK remains at the forefront of this vitally important sector. Course details Our CDT offers a unique programme, combining training and research which will aid graduates in transitioning into careers in the wind and marine energy sectors. With proven and rapidly growing international demand for highly qualified engineers and researchers, this course offers high level training which is attractive to industries. To prepare for this exciting future, graduates will work closely with manufacturers, developers and researchers. This multidisciplinary programme brings together graduates from various science and technology disciplines to create a unique community of researchers. Training covers all aspects of wind and marine renewable energy systems including the wider socio-economic context. The Centre for Doctoral Training currently has students from the following backgrounds Electronic & Electrical Engineering Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Civil & Environmental Engineering Physics Mathematics Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management Chemical & Process Engineering Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering Renewable Energy Entry requirements Studentships are available to UK and eligible EU citizens with (or about to obtain) a minimum of a 2.1 Masters or 1st Class Bachelor’s degree in the Physical Science or Engineering. These competitive Studentships will commence each year in October and will cover University fees and provide a highly competitive stipend. Applicants must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm, creativity, resourcefulness and a mature approach to learning. Research is of central importance in everything we do. It informs our teaching and helps us to make a difference to business, industry and society as a whole. We're in the UK’s top 20 universities for research intensity according to the Times Higher Education’s analysis of REF2014. We are also delighted to have won Times Higher Education University of the Year 2019 – the only university to be awarded the UK-wide award for a second time ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences is a research centre devoted to the science and technology of light. Our research thrusts target the global forefront of photonics, and aim to tackle important challenges faced by society at large. We focus on current and future problems in health, energy, information, safety, security and caring for the environment Cardiff University, School of Physics and Astronomy Our world-leading research in physics and astrophysics helps us to better understand the physical world around us and informs the education of our students to ensure we produce highly employable graduates TWI is one of the world’s leading independent research and technology organizations, with expertise in materials joining and engineering processes.
