PhD position in planning low-carbon electricity systems under uncertainty (University of Strathclyde)

We invite applications for a PhD position at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering of the University of Strathclyde. The PhD project aims to develop a new class of methods for investment planning problems in electricity transmission networks.

For this exciting PhD project we are seeking a student with an interest in applying advanced mathematical and computational techniques to study planning problems in the electricity transmission system. The project will require candidates to have excellent mathematical and/or computational skills and an interest in the energy sector.

The PhD position is fully funded (tuition fees plus a stipend) for UK home students. Overseas students may apply and make use of the provided scholarship, though we note that they would need to provide their own funding to make up the difference between the UK and overseas tuition fees. The student will be supervised by Dr Waqquas Bukhsh and co-supervised by Prof Keith Bell. As well as the opportunity to study within a vibrant research group, there will be the chance to engage with industry, not least the transmission network companies in Britain.

Please follow the link below for further details and the online application form.

Applicants are welcome to contact me ( to discuss the project ahead of the formal submission of an application.
