Atmospheric and Environmental Physics Research Group, Experimental Physics Department
National University of Ireland
The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland is providing funding for a student undertaking postgraduate study in the Atmospheric and Environmental Physics Research Group of the Experimental Physics Department at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
The studentship is open to all EU* applicants (Non-EU students may also apply) for 3 years PhD research in the area of airborne pollution science.
Specifically, the student will conduct experiments aimed at understanding the process of resuspension of aerosol particles from human body surfaces, and carry out risk assessments for accidental or deliberate radiological release scenarios.
The ideal student will have a good first degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Mechanical Engineering), will have some understanding of airborne pollution science, and a proven ability (through undergraduate project work, for example) to conduct practical experimentation.
For further details, contact Dr. Miriam Byrne by e-mail (miriam.byrne [at] nuigalway.ie) or by telephone (+353 91 49 3394)
The studentship will take the form of a remission of university fees and a stipend up to a maximum of €14,000 per year for EU students.
Non-EU students may also apply, and can receive the stipend, but they will NOT be entitled to a remission of fees (PhD fees for non-EU students are, at present, €11,000 per annum).
Interested candidates should apply, sending a curriculum vitae (naming two referees) and a covering letter, to;
