With £2.4m of funding from the Research Councils UK Energy Programme, the Fusion Doctoral Training Network is a collaboration of universities and government research institutes that integrates postgraduate training in fusion science and technology with related disciplines, such as technological plasmas. It is part of EPSRC's Centres for Doctoral Training programme, working with other energy centres through the Energy CDT Network.
The network provides training from world-leading experts in a range of fusion-relevant disciplines: materials science, plasma physics, nuclear physics, technology, laser physics, instrumentation, etc.
Students will have access to a range of fusion energy facilities, including the MAST and JET tokamaks at Culham in Oxfordshire, the Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and high performance computing facilities. International links provide access to a range of other fusion devices around the world.
