  Advanced electron beam sources
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron beam technology is a unique technology that enables joining dissimilar and otherwise hard to weld metals with very precise and clean welds while minimizing the heating of the material outside the working area.
  Emerging application of gas plasma technologies
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas plasmas generate reactive environments at low temperature that can trigger chemical and bio-chemical processes that are hard to initiate by other means.
  Femtosecond synchronization for externally-injected laser wakefield acceleration at CLARA
  Dr L Corner, Dr E Snedden
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded studentship from Oct 2020 on the development of synchronisation, timing and feedback mechanisms in laser plasma wakefield acceleration (LWFA), held at the University of Liverpool and the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (AsTeC) at the Daresbury Laboratory.
  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.
  Suppression of electron cloud in future particle accelerators using Laser Ablation Surface Engineering
  Prof A Wolski, Dr O Malyshev, Dr R Valizadeh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available from October 2020 to study Laser Ablation Surface Engineering (LASE) for the suppression of electron cloud in future particle accelerators.
  Hybrid plasma wakefield acceleration
  Dr B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) allows production of electron beams with energy gains and brightness orders of magnitude larger than with state-of-the-art accelerators via the plasma photocathode (dubbed “Trojan Horse”) approach [1,2].
  Investigating the impact of equation of state uncertainties on direct-drive inertial fusion energy simulations
  Dr T Goffrey, Prof T D Arber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Direct-drive inertial fusion energy1 (IFE) requires high-energy lasers to be focussed on a spherical target. The outer material of the target (usually plastic) ablates, driving an implosion of the core deuterium-tritium (DT) fuel.
  Using advanced camera image and data analysis to address an important hurdle for magnetic fusion energy
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr B Dudson, Prof B [email protected]
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A magnetically confined fusion tokamak reactor does not operate in isolation. Fusion reactions generate power which, in steady state, is transferred to surrounding surfaces.
  Hybrid beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration for highest brightness beams
  Prof B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are on a quest towards ultracompact electron accelerators and 5th generation light sources -- transformative ultrafast microscopes for the 21st century.
  Coronal Heating by MHD Waves
  Prof I De Moortel
Application Deadline: 15 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question why the Sun’s outer atmosphere (corona) is so much hotter than the solar surface (photosphere) remains one of the most challenging open problems in Solar Physics.

  Magnetic flux emergence on the Sun.
  Dr V Archontis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key open question in solar physics is how magnetic fields emerge from the solar interior to the surface of the Sun, to form sunspots and active regions.
