  • EPSRC/NERC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment

    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 has committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and clean energy produced by offshore wind will be a cornerstone in reaching this target. 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 funded PhD opportunities are for exceptional graduates from a range of STEM backgrounds and could unlock a career in this new and innovative industry.
