Sponsored PhD

An opportunity exists to undertake a PhD with the Matar Fluids Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. The successful student will contribute to the modelling and simulation of multi-material and multiphase high-energy density flows, with application to novel, inertially-confined, nuclear fusion schemes at First Light Fusion (FLF) Ltd. Fusion can provide a clean baseload power supply, which is inherently safer and more secure than fission power. There is an increasingly urgent need for such new technologies to act on climate change.
