Application deadline is Thursday 31 August 2016

2 x PhD Funded Studentships in Engineering and Architecture

2 x PhD Funded Studentships based in:

The School of Engineering: Demand Management using in-situ Heating and Cooling Capacity for Energy Security and Sustainability
The School of Architecture: Future Cities, a socio-spatial approach and engineering

Two project studentships are available for suitably qualified and well-motivated candidates. Project titles are given above. The first is led by the School of Engineering in collaboration with Architecture. The second is led by the School of Architecture in collaboration with Engineering. Due to the strong multi-disciplinary link between the two projects it is expected that candidates will work closely in their respective research fields. Candidates will have the opportunity to work with existing industry collaborators to enhance their research impact.
Interviews are due to take place 2nd September 2016.
