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.

Supervisors: Dr Matthew Williams and Professor Gavin Lotay
