Nuclear Physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 35 Nuclear Physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Modelling of precipitation reactors in the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Nuclear power generation is expected to rise to meet increasing UK and global energy demand, whilst maintaining net-zero targets. Read more

An investigation on the tribochemical surface interactions of molten salt reactors

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Materials challenges have always been critical for delivering low-carbon energy towards the UK’s goal to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Read more

ML-driven Design for Fusion Reactors

The UKRI AI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Decision Making for Complex Systems is a joint CDT between The University of Manchester and the University of Cambridge. 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

Lithium corrosion behaviour of RAFM steels for tritium breeder blankets in fusion energy production

The production of vast amounts of nuclear fusion energy in tokamak and compact spherical reactor designs, as a replica of nuclear reactions in the sun, rely on the deuterium (D)-tritium (T) reaction and the hot D-T plasma confinement using intense superconducting magnets. Read more

Fully funded PhD Studentship in Development of a mechanistic model for He release from PuO2 powders

This 4 year PhD project will support the NDA mission to clean up the UK’s earliest Nuclear Sites safely, securely and cost effectively by developing a predictive model for the release of radiogenic helium from plutonium oxide powders, both during storage and in any processing of the powders for use as a fuel or disposal. Read more

PhD in the Production & Analysis of Nuclear Threat Reduction Relevant Radionuclides

The UK’s Nuclear Threat Reduction (NTR) programme requires regular access to samples of relevant radionuclides in order to demonstrate its capability in nuclear forensics (NF) investigations. Read more

PhD in Physics - Accessing the Pion 3D Structure with CLAS12

The understanding of the origin of the mass, the spin and the structure of the hadrons (protons, pions,...) from their elementary constituents (quarks and gluons, collectively called partons) is among the unanswered questions in particle physics. Read more

Platinum Self Powered Neutron Detectors

The research project, a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and Sizewell C, will investigate the technical feasibility of using Platinum based Self Powered Neutron Detectors. Read more

Investigation into the challenges and scenarios faced in decommissioning

Construction of PWR’s at Sizewell C is considered critical for the energy security and future of energy supply in the UK. All new power plants require estimation of decommissioning and waste management costs to be included. Read more
