PhD Opportunities in Fusion

Fusion has the potential to meet our energy needs in a sustainable way, with minimum impact on the environment.

The next generation of fusion scientists will be ideally placed to realise our dream of fusion energy, exploiting ITER (under construction) and NIF (already operating), along with world class facilities in the UK (JET, CLF, Orion and MAST-U).

The Universities of Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and York offer PhD research projects in the following fusion relevant research areas:

  • Materials science
  • Instrumentation
  • Plasma physics
  • High energy density physics
  • Low temperature plasmas
  • Experimental, theoretical and computational projects

To find out about PhD projects & funding opportunities for 2019 please see:
