Structure of exotic nuclei via lifetime measurements


Department of Physics

About the Project

In the nuclear physics group at York, we focus on carrying out world-leading research aimed at the study of the fundamental properties of atomic nuclei and the origin of elements in the cosmos, employing and developing state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical techniques. As well as pursuing fundamental research focusing on key questions at the forefront of the field, we work to develop new techniques in nuclear technology, working closely with industrial partners. We are also strongly committed to our outreach programme, inspiring the next generation of scientists and bringing the excitement of fundamental science to the wider public.

We are currently seeking for a highly qualified and motivated student with a strong research interest in nuclear structure. The successful candidate will work on experiments that aim at measuring lifetimes of excited states of exotic nuclei. The experiments employ particle and gamma-ray spectroscopic techniques and the successful candidate is expected to travel to international state-of-the-art accelerator facilities to support the experimental investigations. The successful candidate will gain expertise in the physics of gamma-ray and particle detectors, in nuclear structure theory, as well as in advanced large-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.
