  Ion cyclotron emission (ICE) from energetic ions in fusion plasmas
  Prof S C Chapman, Prof R Dendy
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Research at Warwick University’s Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) focuses on plasma physics applied to the grand challenges of fusion energy, space physics, solar physics, and astrophysics.
  Novel Vanadium-based Alloys for Structural Applications in Nuclear Fusion Reactor
  Dr B Cai
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham.
  Fast ions and turbulence in fusion plasmas
  Dr B F McMillan
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics, University of Warwick. Research at Warwick University’s Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) focuses on plasma physics applied to the grand challenges of fusion energy, space physics, solar physics, and astrophysics.
  Laser-driven fusion: the Polar Direct Drive Shock Ignition approach
  Prof N Woolsey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Join Robbie Scott at the Central Laser Facility (STFC) and Nigel Woolsey in the Physics Department (York) and contribute to an international effort to achieve fusion energy gain through Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF).
  Magnetic fields and laser-driven fusion plasmas
  Prof N Woolsey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Magnetic confinement fusion or MCF relies upon a strong magnetic field to confine the plasma and limit electron thermal conduction to the walls of the experiment.
  Innovative manufacturing of refractory metals
  Dr A Shokrani
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
The global demand for electricity is increasing at 3.1% and the need for a clean and sustainable source of energy is paramount. Fusion energy research seeks to generate clean, safe, and abundant electricity and this PhD studentship is a lifetime opportunity to have an impact on realisation of fusion power plants.
  Developing the next generation of plasma-facing materials by understanding the formation of irradiation-induced defects in tungsten
  Dr E Prestat, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Tungsten (W) is the primary material of choice to be used for plasma-facing components (first wall and divertor) because of its superior high-temperature properties, neutron irradiation resistance and low retention of implanted tritium.
  Demonstration and optimisation of a Field Reversed Configuration (FRC) plasmoid for injection into a High-Energy Density Electromechanical Thruster based on Stabilised Liner Compression for a UK Fusion Rocket propulsion program
  Dr P Shaw
Applications accepted all year round
Introduction to the project. This project aims to investigate an aspect of a potential spacecraft propulsion system which could enable future manned exploration of the solar system.
  Multi-Sensor Data Fusion and Smart Decision Making
  Prof L Mihaylova
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to develop scalable models and algorithms for fusion of big data in complex systems. The project will focus on problems from smart cities –such as traffic modelling, mobility prediction and control.
  Fast ions from graphene with potential application spanning fusion and oncology
  Prof N Woolsey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Proton and heavier ion acceleration using ultra-intense lasers is being widely investigated for pure science, plasma diagnostics, medical as well as fusion engineering applications.
