About the Project
The funding is for a three-year research programme leading to the degree of Ph.D, starting in September 2020. The project will focus on either experimental or theoretical topics in nuclear structure and explosive astrophysical environments. Experimental work takes place mainly at leading international heavy-ion accelerator facilities including Argonne National Laboratory (Chicago), TRIUMF (Vancouver), GSI (Germany) and HIE-ISOLDE (CERN). This work makes use of a variety of state-of-the-art detector systems for both charged-particle and gamma-ray spectroscopy. Our theoretical research is focused on studying the atomic nucleus and its interactions with ab-initio methods and studies of nuclear reactions and dynamics. Here, we exploit high-performance computing and developments in theoretical physics.
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 topics including radiation detector systems, high-performance computing, C/C++ programming, data analysis and in performing Monte-Carlo simulations would be advantageous but is not essential.
IELTS: A score of 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.
