The School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham is advertising a PhD studentship to identify those food manufacturing and supply scenarios that would lead to successful strategies for the transition to net-zero food supply chains. The student will need to collect both quantitative and qualitative data to identify technical and non-technical drivers of demand for food cold-chain, and estimate the energy use and emissions up to 2050.
The candidate should be a UK citizen/EU with settled status, and should have a postgraduate degree or at least a strong upper second-class (2.1) undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering or another suitable branch of Engineering/Energy/Sustainability. Candidates with knowledge and experiences in whole systems analysis are preferred. Fluent English speaking and writing are required.
