nuclear waste PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 35 nuclear waste PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Fully Funded Scholarships in Marine Ecosystem Modelling and Sub-surface Characterisation at SUERC, University of Glasgow

The UK is working towards the development of a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) to safely dispose of radioactive waste. The GDF may be located below the seabed and will have a 150-year construction and operational lifespan before being sealed off to isolate the waste from the surface environment. Read more

Wireless Powered LoRa Through-Wall Indoor Nuclear (LoRa-TWIN) Monitoring in Decommissioning Environments

Indoor remote wireless sensing provides a paradigm shift in monitoring and managing nuclear assets more efficiently and effectively offering the possibility to collect real-time information with minimal human interventions in hazardous environments. Read more

Fully-funded PhD Studentship in The Corrosion of Magnox Spent Nuclear Fuel

The safe storage of the UK’s nuclear legacy is one of the key aims for Sellafield. Part of that legacy, Magnox reactors were fuelled using uranium metal rods clad in a magnesium-aluminium alloy. Read more

Next-Generation Low-Carbon Cement Wasteforms for Safe Disposal of Radioactive Waste

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning by encapsulating it in cement to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Computational Studies of Gas Adsorption in Special Nuclear Materials (SNMs) (Ref: PG/MA/2024)

An exciting PhD opportunity jointly funded by the UK Research and Innovation Council and Sellafield Ltd is available in the Advanced Materials Modelling Group at Loughborough University. Read more

Developing a framework for regulatory conformance of innovative experimental nuclear reactor

Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs) are a next-generation nuclear reactor technology outlined by Generation IV International Forum, fulfilling sustainability, economics, safety, and proliferation resistance goals. Read more

Developing a digital twin for validation of packing optimisers used for nuclear decommissioning

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
When sorting and packing nuclear waste items, the current practice typically involves human operators wearing full PPEs and/or remotely controlled robotic arms. Read more
