Job Details

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fusion Energy Science and Technology (Fusion CDT) is a collaboration between the Universities of Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and York, working together with UKAEA, AWE, the Central Laser Facility and industry. 

What we offer:

  • Funded 4-year PhD research studentships open to home and  international applicants, fully funded at home rate
  • A full training programme in fusion energy, including materials and plasma science
  • A supportive environment within a cohort of fusion energy PhD students
  • Extensive opportunities and funding for international collaboration and travel
  • Links to world-leading fusion facilities and expertise in the UK and overseas.

The Fusion CDT supports a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning and research environment across its partner organisations. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds and aim to support flexible working and part-time study where possible.

Students have access to a range of fusion energy facilities across the UK, including the Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the MAST and JET tokamaks at Culham in Oxfordshire, advanced materials research facilities, the Orion laser and high performance computing facilities. International links provide access to many other fusion devices around the world.

The combination of world-leading experts and world-class facilities creates an outstanding training environment for the next generation of fusion scientists – the generation who will exploit ITER, NIF and other international experiments to make fusion energy a reality.
