Applications are invited for a PhD project to work in the efficient and cost-effective production of hydrogen i.e., using innovative electrochemistry with sustainable and long-life catalysts. To achieve the global greenhouse gas emissions targets and move both industry and society towards a net zero emission path, there is an urgent need for hydrogen to be used as feedstock for energy to fuel industrial processes, domestic heating and for transport. In the long term, hydrogen must be produced from renewable and/or low-carbon resources, in a true sustainable pathway towards a low-carbon or ‘green’ hydrogen economy. This poses numerous technical challenges as well as cost issues. This project will aim to:

Join us at a free webinar at 6 pm on Thursday 8 December for more information about the funded projects available through this cluster. You will be able to hear from PhD supervisors and ask questions about the programme
This project will be part of the interdisciplinary research cluster ‘Development of innovative hydrogen production and storage technologies for a net-zero emission society’ funded by the University of Hull PhD Cluster Scholarships Scheme 2023/24, formed by four fully-funded PhD scholarships in themes related to hydrogen production, hydrogen storage, optimisation and modelling, and industrial applications. The successful applicant will be based at the School of Natural Sciences and also be part of the wider team from the School of Engineering within the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Aura Innovation Centre. All PhD cluster students will work in close partnership with industrial partners, providing an exceptional PhD training environment.

University of Hull's Doctoral College provides support to postgraduate research students. Offering skills development opportunities and dedicated facilities, the college is here to help you achieve your potential.
Applicants should have a minimum 2:1 degree in engineering, chemistry or related subject. A taught MSc or Masters by Research in a relevant subject or relevant laboratory experience would be an advantage.
For more details on our entry requirements please visit the postgraduate admissions webpage.
This scholarship is available for full-time and part-time study.
This opportunity comes with a Home fee waiver only, which will not cover the full International fee. You will therefore need to pay the difference between the Home fee and the International fee every year and will need to provide evidence that you have sufficient funds to cover this.
The amount you will have to pay will depend on the PhD programme that you will be registered on.
Submission of your final thesis is expected within three years and three months from the start of your PhD scholarship for full-time and within five years and six months if studying part-time.
As a PhD student here at the University of Hull you will undertake the Postgraduate Training Scheme alongside your main degree, to help you develop the research skills and knowledge you’ll need in your future career. You will gain an additional Certificate or Diploma in Research Training in addition to your PhD.
