PhD Studentship Adsorption refrigeration/heat pumping innovations in sorption generator design

This award is funded by the School of Engineering in support of the RCUK funded Interdisciplinary Centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy (i-STUTE).

The energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness of adsorption refrigerator or heat pump systems depend critically on the heat and mass transfer within the sorption vessel together with its thermal mass. A ‘good design’ depends on integrating the conflicting requirements of enhanced heat transfer, good mass transfer, low thermal mass , corrosion resistance, resistance to extreme thermal and pressure cycling, all with the overarching constraint of low production cost.

Awards available: 1 award available
Funding Details: The Scholarship will pay an annual stipend at the standard rate (currently £13,726) and tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for three years. Overseas students may apply and, if successful due to funding restrictions would be required to make up the difference in fees between the home and the overseas rates
Length of Award: 3 years (PhD)
Eligibility: Open to both Home/EU and Overseas applications. Please note that due to funding restrictions international/Overseas students will be required to find funding to cover the difference between home/EU fees.
Application Details: Candidates should have a minimum first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a suitable branch of Engineering, or the equivalent in a suitable Science/Engineering degree.

We ask that you submit the online application and upload your CV and transcripts. You must complete the online application form quoting scholarship reference: REC-iSTUTE
