PhD Studentship Opportunity in Key measurements in nuclear structure and explosive astrophysical scenarios with radioactive ion beams

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Sunday, September 01, 2019
  • Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

Project Description

This project focuses on experimental work at the interface of astrophysics and nuclear structure by exploring the role of exotic radioactive nuclei in explosive astrophysical environments.

The funding is for a three-year research programme leading to the degree of Ph.D. The project will focus on key investigations relevant to both nuclear astrophysics and nuclear structure physics. The experimental work will take place mainly at leading international radioactive ion beam accelerator facilities both in Europe and North America including TRIUMF (Vancouver), CERN and Michigan State University and will utilise a variety of state-of-the-art detector systems for for both charged-particle and gamma-ray spectroscopy.

Entry requirements:
A first Class or Upper Second Honours degree (or equivalent overseas qualification) in an appropriate discipline (e.g., physics or mathematics and physics). You should be able to demonstrate excellent mathematical, analytic, programming skills. Some previous experience with radiation detector systems, experience with C/C++ programming and in performing Monte-Carlo simulations would be advantageous but is not essential.
IELTS requirements:A score of 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.

How to apply:
Application should be sent through the University of Surrey admission system
Please clearly state the studentship title and supervisor on your application.

Funding Notes

This is a research council funded studentship. The studentship covers the University tuition fees (at EU/UK level) and provides an annual tax free stipend for UK students (rate for 2019-2020 is £15,009 p.a. tax-free).
