We are seeking a post-graduate research student for a 4 year Engineering Doctorate (EngD) exploring biomass densification starting in October 2019. The EngD will be based at the University of Nottingham.
The project will include an enhanced tax free stipend of £18,527 p.a. over 4 years, plus fees paid. The project is sponsored by the Biomass Fossil Fuel Research Alliance (BF2RA) with anticipated industry supervision from Drax Power Ltd.
The project will
EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry or an industrially focused PhD. Students will conduct their research in academia and industry, spending time working directly with a company and receiving advanced training from a broad portfolio of technical and business courses.
BF2RA is funded by a consortium of UK energy providers aiming to promote research and other scientific studies into the production, distribution and use of biomass and fossil fuel and their derivatives, and the minimisation of by-products arising from the use of biomass and fossil fuel and to assess the environmental impact caused by such materials and the development of products thereof.
This project is available only to UK/EU applicants.
This 4-year (including CDT taught-courses) project is funded by the EPSRC CDT in Resilient Decarbonised Fuel Energy Systems Centre for Doctoral Training in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham and the Industrial Sponsor BF2RA. The annual tax free stipend is £18,527 which includes an enhancement from the Industrial Sponsor. A substantial consumables and equipment budget is provided by a concurrent EPSRC grant and all fees are paid. Travel funding for conference presentations is available.
