Led by The University of Nottingham involving collaboration with the University of Birmingham and Loughborough University
This EngD Centre will produce research leaders to tackle the major national and international challenges over the next 15 years in implementing new power plant to generate electricity more efficiently using fossil energy with near zero emissions, involving the successful demonstration of CO2 capture, and reducing CO2 emissions generally from coal utilisation, including iron making.
A number of Engineering Doctorate postgraduate studentships starting October 2012 are available.
The EngD training provides:
Projects will match both the interests of the research engineer and the company. Students should be of high academic calibre and merit and must satisfy the UK residency requirement. They will also need either a first class or upper second class honours degree in a relevant subject.
Projects available starting October 2012 include;
To apply, send a CV with a covering letter to Professor Colin Snape, Director of EngD Centre in Efficient Fossil Energy Technologies, Email: efet at nottingham.ac.uk.
