Shape the energy of the future

Interested in a PhD or Masters degree in fusion research?
Find out more at our Open Day at Culham, Oxfordshire,
6th December 2017

Join us at the hottest place on Earth to see how you can apply your knowledge to combat global warming. At Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, researchers run experiments at over 100 million degrees C to develop fusion, the ultimate clean energy source.

Culham is the world’s leading fusion laboratory with the European flagship machine JET and the UK research programme, centred on the MAST experiment. Much of our work is focused on international collaborations, including the new ITER project being built in France – the stepping stone to commercial fusion power.

We have a range of PhDs each year in partnership with UK universities and some of these have related Masters courses. They span:
• Plasma physics – theory and experiments
• Materials science
• Engineering and technology

The Open Day is being organised by Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and the Fusion Centre for Doctoral Training led by the University of York. Several leading universities and the Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory will attend to describe PhD and Masters opportunities in fusion and related research.
