  A novel future ion therapy accelerator
  Dr R Appleby
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

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.
  Adaptation of 3 GHz cavity design of linear accelerators for proton radiotherapy
  Dr R Apsimon, Dr H Owen, Dr G Burt
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the development of high-gradient radiofrequency linear accelerators proton therapy.
  Beam-beam and crab cavity proton dynamics for the LHC luminosity upgrade
  Dr R Appleby
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD project, starting October 2020. The luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider will increase the delivered instantaneous luminosity by an order of magnitude to search for new, rare, particles and perform precision measurements of the standard model of particle physics.
  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.
  FLASH VHEE radiotherapy: a potential new paradigm in cancer treatment
  Prof R M. Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FLASH-RT entails delivering a high dose over a sub-second timescale and exploratory experiments indicate cancerous regions suffer lethal damage whereas healthy tissues show little impairment.
  Magnetic design of a prototype FFA Gantry for rapid delivery of proton therapy
  Dr H Owen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

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.
  Properties of Rare-Earth Elements and Their Application to Free-Electron Lasers
  Dr H Owen, Dr B Shepherd
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the design of magnetic arrays for future free-electron lasers. Previous work by our group indicates that certain rare-earth metals can support large magnetic fields and therefore can be used in the construction of high-field magnets for use in particle accelerators.
  Systematic studies of electron seeding, injection and acceleration in AWAKE Run 2
  Dr G Xia, Prof Z Sheng, Prof C Welsch
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the research on AWAKE (Advanced proton-driven WAKefield Experiment) project at CERN.
