Wind Energy Graduate Research Fellowships

Fall 2016

College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment
University of Delaware, USA

The University of Delaware (UD) and the Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC) established a graduate research fellowship in wind energy research as part of the purchase and sale of renewable energy credits (RECs) generated by UD's 2MW wind turbine<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/Lewesturbine> that is located adjacent to the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment's (CEOE) Lewes, Delaware campus.  Separately, the Magers Family established a Wind Energy graduate fellowship in CEOE's School of Marine Science and Policy.

Fellows will be advised, as appropriate, by a faculty member whose principal appointment is in Marine Policy (MP), Physical Ocean Science and Engineering (POSE), Geography or Geological Sciences.  We seek a fellow for an ongoing research project focused on socio-economic/cultural dimensions of wind energy and are also particularly interested in prospective students with interest in grid integration; marine logistics; environmental risk assessment; spatial planning; wind meteorology, resource assessment and wind turbine wakes; geological and geotechnical aspects of wind projects; and cost of energy, including social costs. Each fellow will matriculate in the MP, POSE, Geological Sciences or Geography academic program, as appropriate, in Fall 2016 (February 2016 admissions could also be considered).  Only matriculating students are eligible for either research fellowship.  We also offer an Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Wind Power Science, Engineering and Policy<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/research/affiliated-programs/wind-power-program/education/wind-power-certificate>, so successful applicants will have the option of obtaining that specialist certificate in addition to a graduate degree.

UD's Wind Power Program<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/research/affiliated-programs/wind-power-program> is part of the larger Center for Carbon-free Power Integration (CCPI)<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/research/research-centers/the-center-for-carbon-free-power-integration>, which is managed by faculty in three colleges (CEOE, Business and Economics, and Engineering), and which also focuses on grid-integrated electric vehicles. In addition, we have an exchange program with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

As the leading academic program in offshore wind energy in the Americas, we prepare students<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/research/affiliated-programs/wind-power-program/students> for successful careers in government, nongovernmental organizations, research institutions, and the private sector.  Interested prospective graduate students should visit here<http://www.ceoe.udel.edu/academics/for-prospective-graduate-students>.

When applying, please note in your personal statement your interest in a fellowship.

Fellowships include a tuition waiver for the Fall and Spring semesters and a stipend. Twelve-month stipends are approximately $26,000 for Ph.D. students and slightly less for Master's students. Depending on individual circumstance, a 9-month stipend can be considered. Review of applications will begin immediately, so early application is encouraged.

If you intend to apply for the fellowship, you should notify, Janis Lopez, CEOE Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies at jclopez at udel.edu<mailto:jclopez at udel.edu>.  For questions regarding fellowships, please contact Professor Jeremy Firestone at jf at udel.edu<mailto:jf at udel.edu>; for questions regarding the graduate certificate educational program, please contact Professor John Madsen, CCPI's Coordinator of Educational Programs at jmadsen at udel.edu<mailto:jmadsen at udel.edu>.
