Marine Zero

“Our vision is to create a new generation of specialists who pioneer research that drives decarbonisation of the maritime sector”

The Doctoral Programme for Zero Emission Marine Technology is a multi-year scholarship scheme to support a large cohort of PhD students in the Marine, Offshore and Subsea Technology Group at Newcastle University.

A series of application rounds will offer PhD opportunities for exceptional candidates researching topics in:

  • Decarbonisation of shipping
  • Novel marine propulsion and energy efficiency technologies
  • Offshore energy and renewables
  • Other appropriate maritime engineering topics

The scholarships will typically cover a full stipend and tuition fees for home (UK) students OR tuition fees for international students. 

Potential candidates should check for opportunities and deadlines in the current application round section.  

The doctoral programme is supported by industry partnerships. For more information about how to be involved please link to our Industry Partners page or contact us directly.

The Doctoral Programme for Zero Emission Marine Technology is supported by the John Prime Foundation, the Willis Fund and the Stone Marine Propulsion - Sasaki Fund.
