This project is fully funded for UK applicants as a UCL Impact Studentship in collaboration with AWE, and includes an annual tax-free stipend at the normal RCUK rate (£17,428 in 2020/21).
Applicants require to have (by the time of starting) a Masters level degree (either undergraduate or postgraduate) in Geology, Geophysics, Physics, Material Sciences or a closely related field and an enthusiasm to work in a lab-based setting. Some knowledge of computer programming in Matlab/Python or a similar language would be highly beneficial.
