PhD Scholarships in Solar Thermal Energy co-funded by the EU H2020 CySTEM Project, 2017 Scholarship Positions 2017 2018

The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is accepting functions for its Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences PhD program. Successful candidates can be given the alternative to review at The Cyprus Institute, making use of their analysis in direction of the actions of the EU H2020 CySTEM mission.

The Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences PhD program educate potential students in topics which are of worldwide excessive precedence. The difficult program curricula embrace programs that set up a typical foundation amongst college students from totally different disciplines. The curriculum tracks programs relying on the chosen area (vitality, atmosphere, or environment) in addition to together with numerous programs that present insights into a wide range of extra specialised and important matters.

Successful candidates will obtain monetary assist for as much as three years which is the minimal length of the PhD research at the CyI. The monetary assist is in the type of a stipend of 14,000 euro every year for residing bills. The assist is related to the scholar contributing via hisher Thesis analysis or as a part-time Research Assistant to the targets of the European Research Area (ERA) Chair in Solar Thermal Technologies for the Eastern Mediterranean (CySTEM). As said in by the European Commission on its web site, “the ERA Chairs is an important part of the EU’s effort to unlock Europe’s potential in research and innovation.”

The CySTEM ERA Chair motion has the objective of enhancing the already important worldwide standing of the Solar and Desalination Group of the Cyprus Institute to consolidate it into a frontrunner in the Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) analysis subject. The group’s principal analysis efforts are focused to growing revolutionary small poly-generation CST system ideas, which have been initially established in collaboration with main analysis establishments of USA and Europe, corresponding to MIT and the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, underneath the management of Cyprus Institute’s President, Prof. C.N. Papanicolas. We are notably in college students with excessive mathematical and computational abilities, in the modelling and design of latest forms of concentrating photo voltaic thermal vitality methods (data of C++ is a bonus).

The holder of CySTEM ERA Chair is Prof. Manuel J. Blanco, who’s at present additionally the Chair of SolarPACES, the International Energy Agency’s Technology Collaboration Program for CST associated applied sciences.
