Swansea University and EPSRC PHD Scholarship 2023

  • Organisation: Swansea University
  • Duty Station: United Kingdom
  • Opportunity Type: Scholarships
  • Qualification: PhD
  • Reward: £17,668
  • Deadline: 27 January 2023

Next generation photovoltaics including organic, perovskite and dye-sensitized solar cells have superior low-light energy harvesting capabilities. This makes these technologies eminently suited to power the next generation of self-powered internet of things (IoT) devices. This will avoid the need to replace or remove batteries to recharge saving energy, scarce materials and ultimately helping to reduce the carbon-footprint of such devices. The PhD project is closely aligned with ATIP a £6M Program Grant funded by EPSRC and led by Swansea University, in close collaboration with Imperial College London and Oxford University and GENERATION, a new £1M project to develop energy harvesting technologies for the benefit of an ageing population.



Candidates must normally hold an undergraduate degree at 2.1 level (or Non-UK equivalent as defined by Swansea University) in Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) or related engineering and science subjects. For bachelor’s degrees a minimum of a 2:1 is normally required, but this can be lowered to a 2:2 if the candidate can demonstrate relevant practical experience in the fields outlined above.


This scholarship covers the full cost of UK tuition fees and an annual stipend of £17,668.


Additional research expenses will also be available.
