We have a PhD vacancy in conjunction with the Nuclear Decomissioning Authority NDA) and the National Nuclear Laboratory (NLL).
Based on world-leading fundamental research in nuclear physics and a proven track record in developing sensor systems for nuclear science and its applications, the nuclear physics group at the University of Glasgow is offering a PhD position for developing a sensor with novel detector materials and photon sensing schemes to develop, construct and deploy a radiation detector addressing the needs of UK’s nuclear industry. It combines three sensor areas for alpha, beta and gamma radiation, respectively, in a compact housing and with low power consumption. The system should be highly sensitive and capable to detect low amounts of radioactivity.
Applicants require a minimum of a 2:1, BSc or MSci degree in physics or a related degree. Applicants with a PGT MSc are also eligible.
The start date is flexible within the range from Autumn 2020 until Spring 2021. Application period open until filled.
