Applications are invited for a graduate to join the Technological Plasma Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at the University of Liverpool for a 4-year PhD position fully funded by the EPSRC Next Generation Nuclear (NGN) Doctoral Training Centre, starting from September/October 2016.
Next Generation Nuclear is a four year programme leading to a PhD and run jointly by the Universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield. Its mission is to develop the next generation of research leaders to support the UK’s present and future strategic nuclear programmes- cleaning up the nuclear legacy, building new nuclear power stations, and defence and security. It will work with all the UK’s major industrial and regulatory stakeholders, including Amec, Areva, AWE, EDF, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the National Nuclear Laboratory, Rolls-Royce, and Sellafield Ltd, and with leading overseas institutions.
The Successful student will be funded for a total of 4 years. This will include all tuition fees (Approximately £4,052 per year) plus a maintenance stipend of approximately £14,000 per year. Students will spend their first year taking a range of modules and training that will lead to a PGDip qualification, before registering onto a PhD for the remainder of their studentship.
The NGN Centre welcomes applications from international students however; this particular programme is funded by the Research Council which means we have limited funding opportunities for overseas students.
