  Fully Funded PhD Studentship in Environmental Monitoring of Water for Undesirable Particles
  Dr S Monk, Dr D Cheneler
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project concerns the design and development of a robust detection method for the real-time monitoring and determination of unwanted particles emitted from waterborne radionuclides as sometimes found in seawater and groundwater.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  Odd metal clusterings and peculiar phases in nuclear extraction processes
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At the end of a nuclear reaction, many countries seek to recover unspent uranium and plutonium from the spent fuel. The most common way to do this is to dissolve the spent fuel in nitric acid, add some oil and also a special ligand.

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
