We need the world’s brightest minds to join us in developing solutions to the environmental and engineering challenges the offshore wind industry is facing. The UK's Climate Change Act 2008 aims for an 80% cut in UK carbon emissions by 2050 – clean energy produced by offshore wind is a key player in UK renewable energy. Already providing over 10% of the UK’s electricity and growing at an unprecedented rate, by 2030 it is expected to provide over 30% of the UK’s energy needs.
The Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind and the Environment is led by the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull with partners Durham, Newcastle and Sheffield Universities. Working closely with over 20 Industry partners, the Aura CDT invites high-quality applications for 4-year taught and research PhD scholarships. These are fully funded PhD opportunities to attract exceptional graduates to this new and innovative industry.
Applications will open in Autumn 2020 for Cohort 3, who will begin studying in September 2021.
