To reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions globally, there is a considerable push to decarbonise the existing and/or future transportation and propulsion systems with carbon-free or low carbon energy carriers such as hydrogen (H2), and ammonia (NH3), e-fuels and other renewable energy resources. The current research group at UoB has been successfully awarded governments and industrial funding for decarbonising heavy transportation in both rail and marine sectors. These have created an exciting and innovative partnership between the UoB and industrial partners working on pioneering research on developing advanced fuel and propulsion systems for cleaner marine, train, road and heavy-duty vehicles resulting in an impact on global commerce, the economy and the environment.
The selected candidate for the funded PhD opportunity will be embedded within a team of specialist researchers and academics at UoB and will regularly liaise with other academic and industrial partners associated with this project to shape the transition to a clean and sustainable net-zero emissions environment. As a PhD student at UoB, the candidate will benefit from involving in high-impact research by accessing high-performance computing facilities and state of the art experimental laboratories at one of the prestigious UK institutions. The candidate will be strongly encouraged to present and publish work in national/international conferences and high impact factor leading journals. The position will also offer opportunities to engage in teaching activities in the school of engineering.
Funding for 3 years would include:
a) UK students: tuition fees plus maintenance allowance,
b) EU and International students: tuition fees.
