The School of Engineering & Physical Sciences has an international research reputation and close connection with the professional and industrial world of science, engineering and technology.
We are seeking motivated and enthusiastic people to work with us to assess the technical potential of several carbon dioxide removal technologies. Carbon dioxide removal is recognised as an important part of meeting climate targets, but the merits and drawbacks of many approaches remain poorly understood. Upon completion of these ambitious projects, the research team will have completed ground-breaking research on the performance assessment of several CDR approaches and provided the field with a framework for best practice that will form the standard for the field.
