CREDS invites applications for interdisciplinary doctoral energy demand research studentships from suitably qualified individuals. Applications will include the candidate’s CV and a research proposal. They must have the support of a prospective host supervisor employed in a university that is a participant in the CREDS consortium.

Successful applicants will be encouraged to participate in CREDS networking activities and those of any successor consortium funded by UKRI for the period after March 2023.

Applicants will hold, or expect to achieve by 30 September 2022, a good undergraduate degree (at least a 2:1) or a Master’s degree from a UK university or equivalent overseas academic qualifications. The degree must be appropriate to the proposed area of study. The awards are subject to the UKRI international scholars’ rules, which allows up to 30% of funds (in this case a maximum of two students in 2022/23) to be recruited from overseas. In the event that more than two of the best eight applications come from international applicants, the strongest two will be funded. Subject to this, the strongest eight eligible applicants will be funded.
