Our goal is to create a gender-balanced multidisciplinary team from a broad range of races, cultures, and social backgrounds. As well as your academic ability we are interested in your life experience as we believe listening to different perspectives informs and improves our research. This diversity helps us challenge theories and improve understanding in order to design optimal hydrogen-based solutions in a vibrant and creative environment.
Investment in you
Our integrated PhD is a 4-year programme which, in addition to your research project, will include a combination of taught skills and experiential learning. The programme provides the training you’d expect with addtional classes which will develop your entrepreneurial, managerial, project and communication skills.

Applicants with backgrounds in all disciplines will be considered as a wide variety of projects are available. We also welcome applications from candidates who have taken a non-traditional route, for example those who may have spent time in industry and are looking to return to education. International applicants will need to meet the relevant English language requirements.
