PhD Studentships
04 Feb 2021



Applications are now open for PhD positions co-funded by the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source.




​​These co-funded studentships, normally 50% funded by ISIS and 50% by a university, contain an element of facility development - for example development of equipment, software or experimental processes. Studentships have an ISIS supervisor and a university supervisor who work in partnership throughout the student's project. Over recent years, ISIS has funded around 5​0 of these studentships across a wide range of topics and university partners. A full list of the studentships supported to-date can be found here

Applications are now open through the relevant university websites.
