NuSec Phd Studentships Awards

We are pleased to confirm that  following an external competition, we have awarded up to 50% funding for three PhD studentships starting in October 2020 at the following  universities :-

University

Phd Title

Bristol

Developing the next-generation shipping container scanning system

Sheffield

Development of mixed field radiation detection techniques for oil and gas well logging.

University College London

Larger area semiconductor detectors based on novel inorganic polycrystalline perovskite materials

Each Phd has secured  match funding from an industrial partner. The host University and Industrial partner will also provide further support through the loan of specialist equipment, access to laboratories & testing sites,  scientific knowledge, research supervision, advice on product commercialisation and R&D project management.

These PhDs will contribute towards the development of more accurate, cost effective and efficient  nuclear security detection systems and explore alternative non radioactiive techniques for oil and gas logging. They also involve collaborations across a range of disciplines including electronics,  medical physics,  material science, nanotechnology, computing, geophysics, environmental and particle physics.

Further background details of our Studentship scheme – can be found on our Funding page. 

We hope to be able to formally invite applications for up to a further 3 NuSec Network funded Studentships later in 2020.
