OZ-1 PhD Studentship in Design and Development of a New Vibrational Piezoelectric Energy Harvester
Contract Type: Full Time/Fixed Term (3 Years)
This project is funded by the EU project EnABLES. It aims to present an optimal flexible component/structure that makes the harvester sensitive to any frequencies and irregular vibrations, along multiple directions. This new design will be very different from the traditional linear energy harvester, in which the vibrations have to be within a specific range. Initially, for the proof of concept demonstration a macro scale device will be assembled but ultimately the technology could be implemented into MEMS process. The candidate will work in Tyndall National Institute and School of Engineering, University College Cork, Ireland.
An annual student stipend of €18,000.00 applies for this successful candidate for this position. Yearly University academic fees will paid by the Tyndall National Institute.
