Lancaster University Engineering Department is inviting applications for Ph.D Studentship 2018 in Nuclear and Electronic Engineering, Interested students can apply before deadline at http://www.lancaster.ac.uk….
Lancaster University Engineering Department is offering full funded Ph.D studentship in Nuclear and Electronic Engineering, The Ph.D studentship will be provided on Photo Detector Based Measurement of Beta Radiation in Groundwater, eligible student can get Ph.D studentship details and apply on or before deadline.
This project will investigate GaAs photo-detectors to detect beta particle emissions from strontium-90. The development of this device will permit the in-situ measurement of total beta in groundwater relatively quickly. The potential student will join the Nuclear Science and Engineering Research Group in the Engineering Department at Lancaster University, one of the leading research groups in the world working on digital nuclear instrumentation. The project is supported by funding from the EPSRC Center for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Nuclear and Sell-afield Ltd. The student will also work closely with the experts at Sell-afield Ltd and National Nuclear Laboratory.
Nuclear and Electronic Engineering PhD Scholarship Eligibility Criteria in Lancaster University
Potential candidates for this position should have or expect to achieve a first-class or upper second class degree in Nuclear / Electronics / Electrical / Computing / Physics (or in a similar discipline) or equivalent relevant experience. Due to funding regulations application is restricted to UK/EU students and appointment will always be made on merit.
Radiologically contaminated land is present on a number of the UK’s nuclear licensed sites relating to historical leaks and spills. The presence of this contamination and the ongoing industrial management of radioactive wastes require that the groundwater on these sites is routinely monitored for radioactivity. The default method for groundwater radiological monitoring is by manual sampling of waters in boreholes followed by laboratory analysis via mass spectrometry or activity measurement.
August 2018 is expected date for Application deadline, before apply visit official website to get complete guidelines and official schedule at http://www.lancaster.ac.uk
