About the Project
The nuclear physics research group at the University of Surrey is seeking an outstanding doctoral student candidate to join its internationally renowned program of nuclear reaction studies for astrophysics.
The successful applicant will be welcomed into our world-leading research programme investigating key nuclear reactions that underpin our understanding on the origin of the elements. To this end, the student will participate in experiments at several world-leading nuclear laboratories in the US, Canada and France. Results obtained from these experimental studies will be fed into state-of-the-art computational models to assess impact how elements were synthesised long ago in stellar environments. Skills in data analysis, scientific communication, radiation detection and measurement will be strongly developed over the course of the studentship. This scholarship will also facilitate opportunities for the student to present their findings at national and international conferences, as well as participate in educational summer schools and workshops.
Open to candidates who pay UK/home rate fees. See UKCISA for further information.
You will need to meet the minimum entry requirements for our Physics PhD programme. Starting in October 2024. Later start dates may be possible, please contact Dr Matthew Williams once the deadline passes.
How to apply
Applications should be submitted via the Physics PhD programme page.
In place of a research proposal, you should upload a document stating the title of the project that you wish to apply for and the name of the relevant supervisor.
Standard UKRI stipend, fully and directly funded for this project only. Open to candidates who pay UK/home rate fees. Funding is for 3.5 years. Funded by the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC).
