Project Description

This PhD project concerns the design and development of a robust detection method for the real-time monitoring and determination of unwanted particles emitted from waterborne radionuclides as sometimes found in seawater and groundwater.

This work is currently undertaken via the sending of samples to 3rd party labs for extraction and analysis – a costly and time consuming method. This detector to be developed here will involve the development of a dual distributed solid scintillator comprised of both CaF2(Eu) and YAP:Ce with the intention of creating a prototype system which can be utilised in real life situations to determine the abundance of each radionuclide considered within the sampled water.

This project involves challenges in areas such as the mechanical construction of the instrument itself, and some of the electronics needed to process the signals. However, we are interested from people of all scientific backgrounds as we feel there are challenges in the project that would suit a candidate from a wide range of disciplines.

Funding Notes

This is a fully funded opportunity for UK or EU candidates only and features an annual stipend of £15,009.
