About This PhD Project

Project Description

Applications are invited from exceptional graduates in engineering, physics, chemistry and natural sciences to study for a PhD in the areas of Nuclear Engineering (Instrumentation) and/or Environmental Radioactivity Analysis.
The successful candidate will study in the new Engineering building at Lancaster University, under the supervision of Professor Malcolm Joyce. The focus of this studentship addresses a range of related challenges associated with radiation detection and measurement including, for example:
• The assessment of the damaged reactor core material at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant,
• Radioactivity assessment of ground water concerning the clean-up of UK nuclear facilities,
• The assessment and monitoring of radioactivity in submerged environments,
• The combination of radiation sensing systems with robotic and artificial intelligence.
Informal enquiries are encouraged via 01524 593812 or .
Lancaster University is The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year 2018. Lancaster is ranked 6th in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, and is also named the Best Campus University and Best University in the North West of England. Engineering at Lancaster is ranked 2nd for graduate prospects (Chemical Engineering) and 3rd in the UK for Mechanical Engineering (Guardian).
