Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The centre for Energy and Built Environment Research of
Brunel University invites applications from well qualified
graduates for an externally funded PhD studentship on
thermal insulation to start by 1st October 2008.

Most of the significant proportion of existing housing
stock in the UK have solid masonry external walls which
contribute significantly to thermal losses from the
building. One way of reducing these losses is through
thermal insulation of solid walls. The project will involve
an in depth study of solid wall insulation materials and
practices and the development of optimised designs and
appropriate measures to accelerate the take up of the


Applicants should hold a first or upper second class
Honours degree or an MSc in a relevant Engineering or a
Science discipline. The successful candidate will receive a
tax free studentship in line with EPSRC-funded postgraduate
studentship awards (£12940 in
2008-09 plus university tuition fees). He/she will also be
expected to meet regularly with the sponsors write reports
and give presentations to stakeholders.
