Full Project Detail:

The ERBE CDT is an integrated, four-year programme, which will provide the knowledge, research, and transferable skills to enable outstanding graduates from physics to social sciences to successfully pursue research in one of three themes:

  1. Flexibility and resilience
  2. Technology and system performance
  3. Comfort, health, and well-being

By providing training in a rigorous, world-leading, stakeholder-shaped, outward-facing, and multi-centred research environment, the ERBE CDT will help the UK achieve the goals in the government's industrial strategy and clean growth plan.

You are welcome to apply with a research proposal based on a self-generated project idea, or you can write a research proposal based on one of the project ideas here.

Entry requirements:

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Applicants having a background in STEM subjects, architecture or other building and energy-related disciplines are particularly welcomed. A relevant master’s degree and/or employment experience will be an advantage.
