Fully funded PhDs: Recruitment for October 2020 is now closed.
The programme of study:
Students undertake a four-year (FT) PhD at either Loughborough, UCL or MaREI in one of three themes:
- Flexibility and resilience: the interaction between buildings and the whole supply system, through new generation and storage technology.
- Technology and system performance: demand reduction and decarbonisation of the built environment through design, construction methods, technological innovation, monitoring and regulation.
- Comfort, health and well-being: buildings and energy systems that create productive work environments and affordable, clean, safe homes.
Funded students will receive a stipend which is tax free, plus UK/EU fees for four years (conditions apply). Part-time study is also possible.
We do not accept applications outside of the main recruitment phases or by CV only.
