  Prof T Abram, Dr R Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear power accounts for 20% of UK energy production, making it a critical energy source for the development of society and economy.
  Application of novel ceramic synthesis to the development of lithium-containing fuels for nuclear fusion
  Dr A Gandy, Dr R Boston
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion is an attractive alternative to fission because it offers the potential for power generation without the production of greenhouse gases and long-lived radioactive waste.
  Human-centric AI for engineering design changes in the nuclear industry
  Dr G West, Prof SDJ McArthur
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants are being sought for a 36-month full-time, fully-funded PhD, supported by University and faculty funds, focusing on human-centred application of AI within the nuclear industry.
