  A novel future ion therapy accelerator
  Dr R Appleby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proton therapy is the most rapidly-expanding method of radiotherapy, with a number of new proton treatment centres being established around world that are primarily based on high-intensity isochronous cyclotrons; an example of this is the recently-installed 250 MeV Varian cyclotron at which a research beamline has been installed where Dr.
  Hybrid plasma wakefield acceleration
  Dr B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) allows production of electron beams with energy gains and brightness orders of magnitude larger than with state-of-the-art accelerators via the plasma photocathode (dubbed “Trojan Horse”) approach [1,2].
  NEG Coating Impact on Future Particle Accelerators
  Dr O Malyshev, Prof R M. Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Experimental Demonstration of Terahertz-Driven Particle Acceleration
  Dr D Graham, Dr R Appleby, Dr S Jamison, Dr G Burt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of laser-generated terahertz (THz) radiation sources to reduce the scale of today’s particle accelerators with the ultimate dream of producing compact laboratory-sized machines for applications ranging from versatile x-ray sources to medical treatment.
  Study of ultra-high charge, sub-picosecond duration, MeV electron beams from laser wakefield accelerators
  Prof D Jaroszynski, Dr G baldacchino, Dr A Maitrallain
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Strathclyde invites applications for a PhD position to join an exciting new project developing knowledge of laser-plasma wakefield accelerators (LWFAs) (1) and investigating their applications.
  Laser Driven Relativistic Particle Acceleration
  Prof S Jamison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to undertake computational and theoretical research on laser driven relativistic particle beam acceleration.
  Electron Microscopy and Tomography of Ion Irradiation Effects on Nano-Structures
  Dr J Hinks, Prof S Donnelly
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

This project aims to study the modifications that occur when nanostructures (such as spheres, rods and wires) are irradiated with energetic ions.
  Experimental and Theoretical Understanding of Rhenium Precipitation in Tungsten for Nuclear Fusion Applications
  Dr J Hinks, Dr M Molinari
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion promises unlimited supplies of low-carbon energy but major technological challenges must be overcome before this becomes a reality.
  Long-term behaviour of nuclear wasteforms under geological disposal conditions
  Dr AH Mir
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological disposal of nuclear waste is an internationally accepted methodology for nuclear waste management and pursued by the United Kingdom.
  Accelerating our ability to understand and target complexity and heterogeneity in cancer through automated imaging of 3D cancer models including patient derived organoids
  Dr C Dunsby, Prof P French
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug resistance is a major challenge for cancer therapy, arising from heterogeneous cellular behaviours within tumours, where initially identical clonal cells can mutate and adapt to diverse microenvironments.
  Development of oblique plane microscopy to accelerate our ability to understand and target complexity and heterogeneity in cancer
  Dr C Dunsby, Dr C Bakal
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasingly, the use of conventional 2-D cell cultures (typically monolayers of cells on glass or plastic substrates) are being found to be inadequate as models of biological systems for the purposes of fundamental biology research and drug discovery.
  Simulation of software engineering and dynamic systems
  Prof F A C Polack
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Simulation of complex systems allows research into the dynamics of systems that cannot be fully observed, ranging from biochemistry or cell-level biological processes, to social dynamics and beyond.
  Simulation uncertainty of complex systems
  Prof F A C Polack
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Simulation of complex systems allows research into the dynamics of systems that cannot be fully observed, ranging from biochemistry or cell-level biological processes, to social dynamics and beyond.
  Superconducting RF Crab cavities for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) upgrade (@CERN)
  Dr G Burt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Non—invasive instrumentation development for particle accelerators on the basis of Cherenkov diffraction radiation
  Dr P Karataev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cherenkov diffraction radiation appears when a charged particle moves in the vicinity of and parallel to a dielectric interface. The intensity is proportional to the length of the radiator.
