PhD Studentship in Power Plant Technologies - Cranfield University

Fully Funded International (Overseas) PhD Studentship

PhD Studentship in Modelling and Simulation of Coal-fired Supercritical Power Plants with CO2 Capture Ability (in the Context of Carbon Capture and Storage)

Cranfield University - School of Engineering

The Process Systems Engineering Group at School of Engineering, Cranfield University is a small vibrant multidisciplinary team. We are seeking to strengthen the research team in the area of modelling and simulation for energy processes such as power plants and CO2 capture technologies.

A project is funded by Biomass and Fossil Fuel Research Alliance (BF2RA). The project is aimed at investigating whether a supercritical power plant with post-combustion CO2 capture plant can satisfy the UK Grid requirements. The study will be carried out through modelling and simulation. A major power generation company in the UK will be closely involved.

The candidate sought is expected to have a strong interest in modelling and simulation for power generation systems and preferably with thermal energy or chemical engineering background. Good understanding of power generation principles and exposure to chemical engineering are desirable. The PhD studentship is expected to start from 1st Nov. 2010.

Academic Qualifications:

We are looking to recruit a very high calibre PhD student. The candidate must be able to demonstrate "a capability to undertake and benefit from research training through to completion, to the standard necessary to qualify for a PhD." This normally requires an upper second class honours degree, or a combination of qualifications and/or experience equivalent to that level.

Residence Requirements:

This fully funded PhD Studentship (including overseas tuition fee and stipends for a period of three years) is open to all applicants (i.e. including candidates from Overseas). In other words, there is no restriction for nationality or residence status. For an informal discussion, please contact Dr. Meihong Wang on Tel: +44 (0)1234 754655 or Email: cranfield.

Application deadline: 30th Oct. 2010
