Applications open for PhD studentships at The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources
20 December 2022
Applications are now open for proposed studentships spanning Energy, Environmental Design and Engineering, Heritage, and Sustainable Resources, as part of 60 studentships to be awarded by the UCL EPSRC DTP.
Applications are now open for 60 fully funded studentships that will be awarded at UCL as part of the UCL EPSRC DTP. Across our four sustainability-focussed Institute’s at The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources we have proposed 19 research topics for PhD students on fully funded studentships to join our 2023-24 cohort.
These 19 proposed topics, spanning our major research interests of Energy, Heritage, Environmental Design and Engineering and Sustainable Resources, forming part of a vibrant catalogue of research topics from which high-achieving candidates are welcome to apply for up to five.
Our proposed studentship topics are:
- The future role of UK refineries in a net zero transition
- Technology options for a circular Net zero Transformation of the UK steel industry: insights from a demand based perspective
- Systems Approaches in the Built Environment
- A high-fidelity coupled urban-building and microclimate modelling approach for energy-efficient and climate-responsive buildings
- An Integrated Indoor Enviromental Quality Exposure Inequalities Framework
- A novel ‘OLFACTORY’ methodology for assessing the presence of mould in buildings
- Quantifying barriers to the adoption of heat pumps to decarbonise heating
- Modelling of salt crystallisation processes in porous heritage building materials
- Warm@Home: Building stock model with customisable socio-technical parameters for home heating
- Energy demand flexibility identification and solutions
- Performance-based parametric design to tackle overheating in UK housing stock
- A net zero UK housing stock that is resilient to increased exposure to heat due to climate change
- Why don’t EPC predictions agree with metered energy consumption?
- Fuel Poverty and Smart Meters
- Understanding the true impact of moisture excess on internal wall insulation: new moisture criteria
- Data-driven techniques for low-carbon, healthy homes
- Enhancing a well-balanced Microbiome for healthier indoor environments
- The impact of fare and passenger heterogeneity on airline behaviour and aviation policy outcomes
- Addressing air quality and thermal performance issues to help tackle inequalities embedded in overcrowded UK dwellings: development of enhanced household overcrowding metrics
The EPSRC DTP studentships offer a stipend for living costs (£20,668 in 2022/23), full fees and a research support grant. Applications are welcome from students with Home and International fee status, with 30% of the studentships are available to international students and include full international fees.
These projects proposed by The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources are part of a UCL-wide competition for approximately 60 studentships that will be awarded across UCL as part of the UCL EPSRC DTP. The 60 successful proposals will be chosen following applicant interviews.
For full eligibility criteria, details on the 3-step application process, are available on the UCL EPSRC DTP website.
