Career opportunities

Over many years, research in all aspects of nuclear fission has been neglected in the UK. However, Government policy now requires rejuvenation of this research, to support cleanup of the historical nuclear legacy, geological disposal of radioactive wastes, a new generation of nuclear power stations, and military nuclear applications. Surveys estimate that, over the next 15 years, the civil nuclear industry alone needs 1000 new graduate/PhD recruits per year.
