The annual call for 50%-funded studentships at ISIS is now open, closing 1 September 2023

ISIS students talking


ISIS has an annual call for Facility Development and Utilisation Studentships. Studentship projects can be within any of the science areas studied by neutron scattering or muon spectroscopy at ISIS and should have a strong science case, but they must be focused on benefits to the ISIS facility. These benefits may include facility infrastructure development (including software), staff development or to further realise the benefits of a project previously funded by this call. ​Studentships have an ISIS supervisor and a university supervisor who work in partnership throughout the student's project.

For further details, including how ​to apply, visit the ISIS Facility Development Studentships page​​.

We will be hosting a webinar at 10:00 – 11:00 BST on 14th July 2023 to provide an opportunity for you to find out more and ask questions about the call. To register for the webinar, please complete this form. ​

This call is for student projects within science areas that neutron or muon techniques are applied to. ISIS also supports PhD projects in other areas, such as within accelerator science and technology - please contact Jonny Ranner for further details. 

Over recent years, ISIS has funded around 8​0 of these studentships across a wide range of topics and university partners. Here is a full list of studentships sup​ported to-date​​​:​ ISIS Facility Development Studentships Awarded to 2022.pdf
