Research Associate in Nuclear Radiation Detection and Measurement


Salary: £27,285 to £31,604

Closing Date: Sunday 18 February 2018

Interview Date: To be confirmed

Reference: A2164

With a strong background in nuclear radiation detection and instrumentation, you will research the development and application of radiation detection systems compatible with the harsh environments associated with the decommissioning of legacy nuclear facilities and fusion reactors. This appointment is part of the significant, recently-funded consortium award made by the EPSRC: Robotics and Artificial Intelligence for Nuclear (RAIN).


You should have a PhD in Nuclear Engineering or Experimental Nuclear Physics (or equivalent) with a strong background in applied nuclear radiation detection and measurement. Experience in using radiation detection systems, i.e. scintillation detectors and/or semiconductors is essential. You will be familiar with radiation transport modelling and be willing to engage in internal as well as national and international external collaborations.


You will be joining a highly-regarded and dedicated research group of engineers and scientists, led by Professor Malcolm Joyce, working in a new and well-equipped laboratory-based research environment.


This is a fixed term appointment for 2 years.
