About the Project
The specific research project advertised here will be on investigating and constructing detectors with neutron/gamma-ray discrimination capability using the latest developments in inorganic scintillator technology and pulse-shape analysis methods. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with a UK defence contractor and our industrial partner Kromek PLC based in Co. Durham, a leading developer of radiation detection solutions. Through this partnership, the PhD student will have the unique opportunity to work on applications that serve the latest industry and societal needs, while being a member of a world-class nuclear physics academic group and having a strong involvement in fundamental nuclear physics experiments.
We are seeking for an excellent candidate with a strong research interest in radiation detection technology. The student will gain expertise in the physics of gamma-ray and particle detectors, as well as in modern digital-electronic readout and advanced big-data analysis methods. The experience, skills and networking obtained through this PhD will be a valuable asset for pursuing a career in academia or industry.
