PhD Opportunities

The University of Sheffield is a top 100 world global university, and as such our Energy 2050 PhD students have access to world-class research, facilities and industry connections. As Energy 2050 is part of the University’s Energy Institute, the scope for learning and research connections goes beyond your department, taking in the inter-disciplinary nature of study and the work we do with industry and international partners.

You may find your research requires you to work with world-class equipment at the Translational Energy Research Centre or to travel to work internationally. You can also access other energy-related facilities and research groups through the Energy Institute. 

Energy 2050 develops world-leading activity in energy research, and hosts a vibrant international community of more than 250 students undertaking energy PhDs.
