The University of Strathclyde's Centre for Energy Policy (CEP) is seeking applications for four funded PhD opportunities beginning in March 2024.

These projects align with the CEP's goals to investigate the economy-wide and societal outcomes of different pathways and actions to reach net zero.

The four projects are:

Successful candidates will undertake a PhD project that will contribute to providing policy and decision-makers with the evidence to effectively address the challenge of transitioning to a prosperous, sustainable, and more equitable net-zero economy in the UK.

It is an opportunity for candidates to join the CEP's growing team of researchers, academics and knowledge exchange professionals at the University of Strathclyde’s Centre for Energy Policy (CEP). CEP was part of the School of Government and Public Policy’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF), which Times Higher Education has ranked as number 1 across the UK in the Politics and International Studies Unit of Assessment.

Virtually all of the School’s research outputs were rated as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ and 100% of the impact of this research, which included a CEP impact case study, was rated as outstanding (4*).

At CEP, students will have access to a team of researchers working across the Net Zero space and would benefit from interaction with them, as well as access to a personal development training fund which is provided centrally from the University.

The deadline for applications is December 1st 2023.
