Apply now for the fully funded PhD studentship at the Centre for Doctoral Training for Power Electronics for Sustainable Electric Propulsion

The Power Electronics for Sustainable Electric Propulsion CDT is a collaboration between two of the UK's largest and most forward thinking research groups in electric propulsion: the Electrical Power Group at Newcastle University and the Power Electronics, Machines and Control Research Group at the University of Nottingham. Both groups are supported by over 20 industrial partners and seven industrial networks to deliver unprecedented high quality research and comprehensive training.

It is planned to train at least 50 PhD students over the next five years with more than 20 industrial partners.

How to apply for the fully funded PhD studentship
‌We are now recruiting for our next cohort and we have a minimum of ten fully funded PhD studentship awards for the next cohort starting in September 2020.  Each student will then be assigned to either Newcastle University or University of Nottingham.  When submitting your application, please ensure you have completed and uploaded the Student selection form  which is available to download from the list of attachments as below.

Who do we need?
Due to our tailored programme and research diversity we need students from many subject areas in:

Engineering:  electrical, mechanical, material, big data; and
Science:  physics, chemistry, maths.
Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of this CDT and we are looking for students from any background within an engineering or science discipline. You will have a minimum qualification of a 2:1 Bachelor’s degree.

How to apply?
Please submit an application to Newcastle University or University of Nottingham via the postgraduate application portal via the apply links as below and ensure you apply to one institution only and not to both.

A launch event will be held on Wednesday 26 February 2020 at York.
