Metallurgy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Birmingham

We have 15 Metallurgy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Birmingham

Demonstration of novel high temperature zirconium alloys under irradiation for generation-IV fission

A 3.5-year UK/EU PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr Sandy Knowles within the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham, with a stipend of at least £18,622 per year (industrial top up of ~£2000 expected). Read more

Irradiation performance of electron beam steel welds for fusion breeder technologies

Structural steels based on body-centred cubic structures are a preferential option for first wall and breeder blanket components in magnetically-confined fusion tokamak designs, due to their enhanced resistance to radiation-induced void swelling, as compared to face-centred cubic materials, and to their high-temperature mechanical strength.

Manufacturing, characterization, and recycling of nano-particle reinforced metal composites for extreme environments

Applications are invited for two funded PhD studentships for the project titled “Manufacturing, characterization, and recycling of nano-particle reinforced metal composites for extreme environments” in the Sustainable Physical Metallurgy group at the University of Birmingham. Read more

Understanding tritium trapping/retention in fusion materials due to helium induced cavities

A funded 3.5-year UK PhD studentship is available at the University of Birmingham with a tax-free stipend. The project is co-funded by the UK Atomic Energy Authority’s Tritium Fuel Cycle Division and will be collaborated with world-leading institutes in the US, France and Germany. Read more
