Each year the Fusion Centre for Doctoral Training collaborates with Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) to organise an open day for prospective postgraduate students. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s event will take place online. During the event, attendees are given the opportunity to:
- Take a virtual tour of the facilities at CCFE
- Network with academics and current students from a range of universities
- Learn about different areas of fusion research
- Find out about postgraduate opportunities
While Fusion is the headline topic, this spans many research areas that encompass plasma physics, materials science, instrumentation and advanced engineering/technologies. It links to fields as diverse as astrophysics, advanced manufacturing and nuclear energy. This event provides a great opportunity to not only find out about what the UK has to offer in fusion training, but also to get a flavour of where a career in fusion energy research might take you beyond your postgraduate degree.
Registration is open now at www.culhamphd.org.uk
