The University of Bristol
PhD Studentships in Materials Science
at the Interface Analysis Centre
The University of Bristol is pleased to announce five funded PhD studentships in Material Science, based at the Interface Analysis Centre (IAC). The IAC is a well established multidisciplinary research centre at the University of Bristol and isbased in the School of Physics.
For 20 years the IAC has been actively involved in research on materials and
material surfaces. The Centre continues to provide a vibrant and stimulating
environment for postgraduate study, exploring materials of all types, including
strong activities in nanoscience, nuclear and structural materials. We aim to produce
graduates who will be equipped with enhanced team-working and problem-solving
skills that enable them to successfully address real world materials problems.
Applications are welcomed from UK/EU students with, or expecting to gain, a first or upper second class honours BSc or MSci degree (or equivalent) in Physics, Chemistry, Geosciences, Engineering or Materials Science. We welcome applications from students with interests in nuclear, materials and environmental research, in particular:
• Uranium and reactive metals
• Materials in extreme environments
• Materials ageing
The studentships are 3 to 3.5 years in duration and cover fees and maintenance for qualifying applicants. As the Centre has attracted much additional funding from leading UK companies, there is the opportunity for these PhD studentships to be further augmented with industrial placements and bespoke education and training.
