Fusion research fellowships
Research fellowships currently available at CCFE and partner organisations :
Culham Fusion Research Fellowship (UKAEA)
Salary: ~ £34k – £37k depending on experience
Closing date: Applications for the 2020 intake are closed.
Each year the UK Atomic Energy Authority aims to appoint one or two outstanding scientists or engineers who have recently completed a doctorate to a two-year research fellowship in any field of fusion research conducted at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE).
Candidates need to be highly motivated and show initiative. Managed and/or self-directed personal training and career development at Culham and elsewhere will be available and there will be opportunities for conference attendance and involvement in scientific outreach activities. Periods of overseas placements with our collaborators will be encouraged. The appointments will be two-year fixed term staff positions.
In general, successful candidates will have completed their doctorates in the previous five years. Candidates need a good degree in physics, mathematics, materials or engineering science and a relevant PhD, preferably in fusion research. Since academic excellence is one of the selection criteria, it is recommended candidates mention significant prizes or other recognition.

Work Permit requirement
Candidates from outside the European Economic Area are reminded that they will need to produce clear documentation to show that they have formal permission to work in the UK. The UK Atomic Energy Authority is unable to employ anyone who does not have formal consent to work in the UK. Current limits on immigration to the UK mean that the Authority’s ability to sponsor employees under Tier 2 (General) of the points based system is very limited. Candidates are advised to explore possible alternative legitimate procedures which do not require sponsorship by the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
