  Fission studies of neutron-rich nuclei
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr S Paschalis, Prof A Andreyev
Applications accepted all year round
The RIBF facility at RIKEN in Tokyo, Japan is the world’s leading laboratory in the production and study of the most exotic nuclear systems that we can currently access.
  Discovering Exotics at Jefferson Lab
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr M Bashkanov
Applications accepted all year round
The Hadron and Nuclear Physics group at the University of York is looking for a bright and enthusiastic PhD student to discover exotic particles at Jefferson Laboratory utilizing intense electron beam and CLAS detector.
  Increasing the potency of biomaterials for tissue growth
  Dr C Spicer, Dr D Lagos
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Materials that can trigger the regrowth and repair of damaged biological tissue have the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  Iron Oxidation at the atomic scale: an In-situ environmental TEM/STEM study
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
Fe and Fe-oxide (FeOx) based nanoparticles (NPs) have shown promising applications in physical and medical sciences. These include magnetic storage devices, catalysis, contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia.
  EBIC environmental STEM microscopy for energy materials and gas sensors
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Electron Beam induced current (EBIC) is an electron probe technique widely used in the semiconductor industry for the analysis of p-n junctions, minority carrier distributions, and material defects.
  Toward next generation of solar cells: the correlation between efficiency and interface atomic structures in perovskite solar cells
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr V Lazarov, Dr L Lari
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have the potential to revolutionise the field of solar cells. Their efficiency in the last decades has increased by an order of magnitude, which is unprecedented in this field.
  First principles modelling of defects in solar absorber materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
A number of materials are emerging as promising candidates to replace silicon in the next generation of solar cells. They offer the prospect of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility allowing for their incorporation into building materials for example.
  Modelling the properties of electron and hole polarons in materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
The strong coupling between electrons and phonons in some materials leads to the formation of small polarons (quasiparticles comprised of a localised electron and an associated polarisation field).
  Theory-led optimisation of materials for tunnelling magnetoresistive devices
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Tunnelling magnetoresistive devices find applications as a magnetic sensors in hard disk read heads and in emerging non-volatile magnetic random access memory (MRAM) technologies.
  Low-temperature plasma nitrogen fixation for agricultural applications
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr D O'Connell
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
This collaborative inter-disciplinary PhD project involves innovative research at the interface of physics, environment, chemistry and biology.
