https://www.pgapps.lancs.ac.uk/

Ph.D. position in 3D imaging of Radioactive Contamination at The Control and Instrumentation Research Group, Department of Engineering, University of Lancaster, UK.
 
The Control and Instrumentation Research Group specialises in developing systems for use in industry. A significant research base has developed for nuclear decommissioning and, specifically, in regard to the challenges of the clean-up of UK nuclear sites.

We offer the opportunity to pursue research, leading to a PhD, in the area 3D imaging of radioactivity in contaminated land. The project will be co-supervised by Dr Malcolm Joyce of Lancaster University and Dr Matt Mellor of React Engineering Ltd, and will offer the chance for hands-on application of novel technologies in the field. 
 
This award is supported by the North West Development Agency (NWDA), REACT Engineering Ltd. and EPSRC, and is an opportunity for a graduate to make an impact in a burgeoning area of government need.
 
The start date for this position is October 2007. Applicants should have a good first degree or MSc in Engineering or Physics. Experience of image processing and/or gamma ray spectroscopy would be an advantage. The studentship covers tuition fees and a stipend of at least 12,600 per annum for UK and EU candidates. Overseas students are welcome to apply, but must fund the difference between overseas and UK tuition fees themselves.
 
Closing date for applications: 20 August 2007
