Engagement

Seeking PhD applications for modelling complex trade-offs between renewable energy development, poverty alleviation, and environmental protection.

An opportunity exists for (up to) two excellent PhD candidates, to work with the Complex Environmental Decisions Lab (within the School of Earth and Environmental Science) and the Dow Centre for Sustainable Engineering Innovation (within the School of Chemical Engineering) on innovative projects that explore the multi-dimensional trade-offs in renewable energy policy. These projects will form part of a set of new projects that seek to identify, anticipate and resolve bottlenecks to change, so as to accelerate the world’s decarbonisation efforts. Students would be part of an international collaboration, led by The University of Queensland and Princeton University (USA), with other partners in India, China and Europe.
